I have obtained the names of the 315 people who signed the petition to create the Tea Party of Nevada. And two things immediately leap out when reading the list.

First, every one of them is from Clark County – hardly representative of the entire state of Nevada for a statewide political party. Secondly, I don’t recognize a single person’s name on the list as an active tea partier.

Then again, it’s impossible for me to know all the tea partiers, especially since I’m not as directly involved with the movement as others are. So here is the list in full. See if you guys recognize any of them – or can discern a possible “smoking gun” linking any of these folks to a possible effort to help re-elect Harry Reid.

26 Responses to Tea Party of Nevada Organizers Identified, Named

  1. None of these names cross reference against the “Anger is Brewing” subscriber list.

  2. Tony's Take says:

    I have a list of AD41 voters… Will go through the list as time allows. Any bets on if these people are Democrats?

  3. [...] Chuck Muth has been digging into who is behind the Tea Party of Nevada: I have obtained the names of the 315 people who signed the petition to create the Tea Party of Nevada. And two things immediately leap out when reading the list. [...]

  4. Mary P. says:

    VASSALLO, RAMIREZ, ALVAREZ, GONZALES, MARTINEZ, SANCHEZ…

    These seem like natural supporters of a movement of angry white people. Yeap, certainly no Democrat links here. No sir.

  5. Anon Guy says:

    If this is the list of registered voters who signed a petition for Ashjian’s candidacy, there’s a good chance not many would be associated with the Tea Party anyway. Or part of a conspiracy.

    To qualify the Tea Party of Nevada as a whole for ballot access would have taken over 9K in valid signatures. Plus the petition would be solely about forming a Tea Party of Nevada. A pretty steep hill to climb. They got on the ballot for Senate because Ashjian the candidate met the much-lower threshold of 250 valid signatures.

    I’m not sure what the petition looked like, but it might have just had Ashjian’s name it, not the formation of a new party. Plus, it could have been just a couple collectors in front of a store bugging anybody who walked by to sign. Let’s face it, four other candidates managed to dig up 250 people to sign.

    One odd thing, though, is I didn’t seem to see any of the TPN officers on the list. I just did a quick cursory look, so maybe I missed them, but you would think if you were trying to start a party by qualifying a candidate you would actually sign the petition to get him on.

  6. Anon Guy says:

    Mary P,

    There’s no quicker way to tar your movement as a just a haven for redneck racists than a comment like that. I know plenty of conservative and, yes it may shock you, Republican Hispanics. Granted, the majority may be Democratic, but nowhere near a totality. Although quips like yours may make it so some day.

  7. Mary P. says:

    Anon Guy,

    I am not a tea party person. My comment was meant as and insult towards them. I understand your point though and I concur with you. Hispanics showed an increasing willingness to vote Republican and did seem to play an important part in the reelection of Bush in 2004. Republicans seemed slow to grasp the importance of this. The Tea Party people on the other hand will not even hear of it…at least judging from the enthusiastic applause Tom Tancredo received at the alleged Tea Party Convention.

  8. Anon Guy says:

    My apologies. I guess my sarcasm detector was on the fritz.

  9. hmmmmmm....???? says:

    My name is on that list… I am Republican and a political Science Major. They came into one of my classes stating Petition to uphold Nevada Rights. Nothing on organizing a new tea party. This is unbelievable…. Can we just tell it how it is on petitions???? Guess not. Does anyone know how I can get my name off of this list? I am a proud Republican and don’t want to be apart of any other party. Please don’t respond with anything against my party just help me get off this list. Thank you!

  10. confirmation says:

    I checked about 30 names and all came out as Democrats.

  11. Len Barend says:

    It seems to me the only one to benefit from the Tea Party is Harry Reid. I would not put it past him to help create the party to divide the vote so he wins another term. Too many Dems on the list.

  12. Anon Guy says:

    hmmmmm …???,

    I believe you can have your name removed from a petition, but only before the verification process. In this case, that has already happened.

    The problem is most people just don’t completely read petitions, especially long-winded initiatives. In this case, though, your petition probably looked like the one on page 17 of the below SOS site. There really is only two simple lines and the “Tea Party of Nevada” would have been there. Voters need to read these a lot closer.

  13. Sheila D says:

    hmmmmmm, send me an email. We’ll help you get off that list.
    rejectreid@earthlink.net

  14. Don Morse says:

    My bet is that Harry Reid is behind this Tea Party candidate,everything he does is underhanded.

  15. Charlene says:

    As an organizer of the Nevada 912 Americans, I do not recognize ANY of these names and have not worked with any on the grassroots activities that I have been involved with.

  16. Louis Morantes says:

    I never signed anything in regards to the Tea Party Movement nor do I support it……..I want my name removed.

  17. Luis Manuel Beltran says:

    I do not support the tea party movement, and am support Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for United States Senate.

  18. Jason Aivaz says:

    I’m “on” the list, as well. I’m a Senior in the Political Science department at UNLV. The young people who circulated the petition brought ONLY the signature pages (unattached to the petition form) and circulated the same under the guise that they we conducting a survey of college students to “determine the feasibility of a 3rd party in UNLV student elections”. Since the petition was circulated reasonably close to UNLV’s elections, I’m sure my fellow students and I didn’t imagine that petition would be used to establish a legitimate alternative party at the state level. People I know and associate with have lost jobs and job opportunities over this list and am requesting not only that this list be taken down but that all who request it have their names removed from the petition. I am willing and able to seek a court injunction towards the same. Thank you. I am a life-long Conservative and, though I agree with the Tea Party on many fiscal issues, I’m not willing to go hand-in-hand with all of their tenets. It kind of saddens me that a side I generally agree with would stoop to such a level when a legitimate process more than certainly would’ve done.

  19. chuckmuth says:

    Unfortunately, whoever circulated the petition WAS able to get your signatures and that person turned those signatures in to qualify John Ashjian as a Tea Party of Nevada candidate for the United States Senate. As such, the names of those who signed the petition because public record. And since the petition has already been turned in and certified, I don’t know how, short of a legal action, you’ll be able to have your names removed. But the place to start looking for answers is the Clark County Elections Department. That’s who has the official list which was turned in and is public record.

  20. C.V. says:

    Everyone who is upset that your name is on the list, don’t lose sight of the point of the story. The point is that the “Tea Party of Nevada” is not a legitimate party and is not supported by the Tea Party movement. The Tea Party per se is a loose group of people who believe we are Taxed Enough Already. The movement was initially started as a push back against the Tarp and Stimulus Bills. Tea Party attendees believed that banks who made risky loans deserved to fail, and should not be bailed out by the taxpayers. Tea Party people also believe that the government debt is unsustainable and will bankrupt our country during future generations. The reports of the Tea Partiers as being racist, astro turf, etc are attempts to discredit the message that the American People are upset about SPENDING and hold both parties accountable. Right now, Republicans are listening and Democrats are not, but the movement is bipartisan. The Tea Party is also looking to bring down Republicans who have overspent and traded away constitutional freedoms. Go to a Tea Party if you want to find out who the people are. Don’t believe the biased news reports. Go investigate for yourself, it will be an eye opener. The vast majority of people are very polite and well informed. I attended a Tea Party, and believe it or not, there were black and latino people present in addition to white people.

  21. benedict di giulio says:

    harry reid is the most despicable,disgusting,devious dem in the senate.he is definetly out to split the conservatve/repub vote.

  22. Kyle M Bishop says:

    I see that my name is on the list and I don’t mind though I didn’t do anything to organize the tea party, I however do support it fully and would be active in it provided I wasn’t in school or work all the time.

  23. Bill Flusek says:

    I see my name on the list and while I don’t recall signing a petition for that, I can see where it might have happened. I was more tea party involved before I moved here and have only been to a couple of events since moving to Vegas last year.

  24. Juliana Whitney says:

    The connection, if you haven’t already figured it out, is UNLV. They are all UNLV students so probably someone was standing on the walk way by north field with a clipboard asking for signatures and probably not being entirely honest about what the petition was for.

  25. Justin Kitman says:

    I am on this list and i did not sign it lol

  26. Sara fields says:

    Philip Rusche is a democrat and a professor at UNLV, no way would he have lent his signature to anything like this knowingly.
