Service Employees International Union members are claiming they commandeered a Tea Party rally outside Bart Gordon's Murfreesboro office and turned it into a health care reform rally. Seven teabaggers were overwhelmed by more than 60 health care reform supporters who converged on the downtown square.
"They didn't know what hit them. Rutherford County is ground zero for conservative politics in Tennessee and we went right into their house and took over their event."
