Katherine Jenerette: Tea Party Inventor?

Katherine Jenerette, a woman on a mission . . .

"A man's right to work as he will, to spend what he earns, to own property, to have the state his servant and not his master; they are the essence of a free economy and on that freedom all our other freedoms depend." - Margaret Thatcher

I'll be writing this weekend about my friend -- and superb congressional candidate -- Katherine Jenerette. As you know, she's running for the congressional seat in South Carolina's 1st District, one that stretches from Charleston, through Myrtle Beach, to the North Carolina border.

A South Carolina newspaper recently identified Katherine as the "inventor" of the Tea Party Movement. Actually, the original Tea Party in Boston Harbor occurred a couple of hundred years before Katherine was born.

In fact, the spirit of the Tea Party Movement has always been alive in this land. Katherine and millions of other Americans are the ones that are the guardians of that spirit.
What can you do for Katherine? First, sign up as one of her fans/friends on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Katherine-Jenerette/193243500669
Then, go to her web site and help her in any way you can. www.jenerette.com.

More tomorrow . . .

Hi Steve! Let me tell you how this got started - The following was written in the Sun News by Robert Morris, Myrtle Beach Sun News Editorial Page Editor on March 10, 2010 at 10:58 AM in the Opinion Blog Section VIDEO: Tea Party Six Pack:

“Katherine Jenerette of North Myrtle Beach, an Army paratrooper, was essentially a Tea Party activist before there were Tea Parties, and she's already a crowd favorite with that group; listen to the moderator's introduction. A former field employee for Brown, she ran against him from the right in 2008 and won 19 percent of the vote in the Republican primary.”

Okay, so I didn’t invent it. But to see a video of the U.S. Congressional Candidate that singlehandedly did not invent the Tea Party but wanted to at the packed house Candidates night last week:
