“Party Crasher” identified as Oregon school teacher

A few days ago I blogged about the “Mad Hatter”, the administrator of an anti-Tea Party website called crashtheteaparty.org, and his plans to infiltrate and sabotage the April 15th Tea Parties. “The Mad Hatter” has since been identified as Jason Levin, a middle school teacher in Beaverton, Oregon.  I wonder what Beaverton parents think of this radical […]
