I’m not sure if this the Atlanta Tea Party Patriots changing their stance and the charter school amendment from “neutral” to “opposed” or if it’s just Debbie Dooley expressing her personal opinion. I’ll try to find out.
UPDATE, 11:56 AM: I received this statement from Julianne Thompson, Chairman of the Atlanta Tea Party Patriots:
The Atlanta Tea Party has been neutral on the issue (of the charter school amendment) and has provided both sides equally, but due to the constant attacks by some, because we have not endorsed it, we are publicly stating our concerns with the amendment and why we cannot come out in support of it. We remain committed to school choice, vouchers, charter schools, and educational savings accounts.
WSB’s Lori Geary says the Atlanta Tea Party Patriots have changed their position:
