WASHINGTON, DC The Black Tea Party Group that emerged in Houston Texas is coming to CPAC. Next month conservatives from across the country will attend the Conservative Political Action Conference including one very unconventional attendee, Anita MonCrief the self-proclaimed ACORN Whistleblower and new Tea Party darling.

A born again conservative, who after sucking from the liberal trough for years, turned conservative super activist after being fired for stealing/embezzling from her employer.   Anita MonCrief was a low level employee who worked in the mailroom for Project Vote. She does not possess any high level or inside information about ACORN or SEIU, which is what she portrays to the public.

Much like the Black "welfare queen" portrayed in the movie "Precious" 

Anita MonCrief is an often angry, single mother who accepted public assistance, and supported democratic causes. That was, until she was fired from Project Vote. Precious Mailroom MonCrief was the type of minority that most traditional conservatives lament" rather than support or endorse. But instead of being reviled, Anita MonCrief has been embraced and celebrated by the Tea Party.

I wonder why?

Anita MonCrief provides the Tea Party the one thing it so desperately needs " diversity. Unfortunately, what Anita MonCrief adds in terms of color, she lacks in credibility.   For instance, David Weigel for the Washington Independent criticized Anita MonCrief for telling lies from the CPAC stage last year.

Precious Mailroom MonCrief was the key source of new information in Michelle Malkin's, best selling Culture of Corruption, although MonCrief is not mentioned in the second edition of that work. Even Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-CA) stopped referencing MonCrief in his House Oversight Reports on ACORN.

The real ACORN Whistleblowers are the ACORN 8. The ones who stood up and reported wrongdoing, filed lawsuits and complaints with the Justice Department and demanded a formal boycott of all ACORN funding. Known as the ACORN 8, they are willing to tell the truth about real corruption at ACORN and its corrupt management.

The ACORN 8 consists of high-level leaders and board members who are fighting corruption within ACORN. Anita MonCrief had previously been confused with the ACORN 8 because they were simultaneously engaged in anti-ACORN advocacy, but she was never a member of this courageous whistleblowing group.

Precious Mailroom MonCrief was never a member of ACORN 8 since she was NOT high-level insider, or even a regular member and she didn't work for ACORN. Serpico was a whistleblower, "Sammy the Bull" Gravano was an informant who turned state's evidence against John Gotti. Likewise, Anita MonCrief the self-proclaimed ACORN Whistleblower is neither. She never worked for ACORN and she is not a real whistleblower.

Today Anita MonCrief is the spokesperson for the American Majority, publisher of the blog and she is the founder of the Crispus Attucks Tea Party in Houston, the first minority Tea Party Group. Not bad for a "Precious" welfare queen who fooled conservatives from Michelle Malkin to Sean Hannity.   If that's the resume of a Tea Party Leader"   then by all means, Anita MonCrief is your woman. However there are better-qualified and more credible minority Tea Party members to choose from.

Ironically, the Tea Party movement is equally damaged by "racists" white leaders or "fraudulent" black ones. Anita MonCrief is a conservative activist. You can even call her an ACORN detractor" but she is NOT an ACORN whistleblower. Precious Mailroom MonCrief is a snitch from Project Vote. And after being caught lying on stage last year" she is going to be a Tea Party panelist at CPAC again this year. Go figure.
