Tea Party Activist Gets Help from Morgan Freeman's Neighbors

In an interview Sunday, Ali Akbar — the Tea Party activist and small business entrepreneur who sent a letter to Morgan Freeman inviting the Oscar winner to a Tea Party — told me Freeman’s Mississippi neighbors would attempt to deliver the letter personally. As many will recall, Freeman accused the Tea Party of racisim, a charge that was immediately rejected by Herman Cain.

My evaluation of Akbar is that he is quite determined to reach Freeman and get some response from the actor to his invitation.
