During the campaign season, Tea Party groups who hadn't been fully co-opted by the RNC, especially Liberty supporters, were treated as proverbial, "red-headed, step-children", by the party elite; but here Priebus wants to pose as their defender.
As bad as this makes Dems look for all the obvious reasons; I can't help but think that the weakening of groups who failed to fully buy into the RNC agenda wasn't as bad to them as it ought to have been. Now, all the RNC has to do to gain more power is expose this scandal against Tea Party folks, without acknowledging that among the reason they were targeted was because the elite of both parties feared their independent thinking and actions.
