The truth about Smitherman's connection to Tea party (Cincinnati City Council elections)

This has been demonstrated several times before, but there are some, who may have missed it and others still who just may not get it; but the fact is, that Christopher Smitherman has aligned himself with The Tea Party... whatever the reason; it is undeniable!  We do not pretend to know the reason that he has done so, only HE can answer why; and we would gladly listen if he legitimately wishes to expound upon it… but so far, all he has done is deny it – so here goes:
Who is Chris Finney, besides a friend and supporter of Christopher Smitherman and Chair of Legal Redress appointed by Smitherman for Cincinnati’s branch of the NAACP?
Chris Finney is a Cincinnati, ultra-conservative activist who is legal counsel and an active leader/ co-founder of the Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes (COAST).  
What is the Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes (C.O.A.S.T.)?
C.O.A.S.T. is an anti-tax, anti- government – spending group here in Cincinnati that opposes President Obama, opposing any spending related to the public welfare and the well- being of the community including African Americans and minorities.  They also support the Tea Party.
More on C.O.A.S.T. and its misalignment on issues which benefit African Americans and minorities
They fought against funding for the ONLY Minority owned business that attempted to open on the Bank’s [Mahogany’s Restaurant which is both Black owned and Woman owned] [Note: Heads out of sand… flatly this was a “Race” issue, because there was no resistance regarding funding awarded for Toby Keith to open in the same venue- if it was merely about spending, dollar for dollar, no matter the benefactor].
They opposed 6-mill Cincinnati Public Schools levy to deny City of Cincinnati kids the same education that their children receive in private schools and that suburban children are privy to [Note: $175 in new taxes on a home with a market value of $100,000 amortized over 4 years is around $3.65 monthly].
They do not support the Public library in their services beyond providing access to books, such as audio books and videos which primarily benefits African American and minorities and the library also providing access to magazines, newspapers, music, movies and Internet access
Want to know why the City can’t keep groups like the Klu Klux Klan from holding their annual rallies here and other offensive forums in our city and on our streets, because it puts our city at risk for this type of litigation [Note: C.O.A.S.T. doesn’t mind burdening the city with having to spend money to defend against their constant attacks which impacts all City of Cincinnati taxpayers].
Christopher Smitherman does not deny his alignment with C.O.A.S.T., nor C.O.A.S.T. its alignment with Smitherman [Note: If you would think about your own political alliances and why it is that you support whomever you do politically … isn’t it because they believe in the things that are important to you and you believe that they will put forth their efforts towards advancing the principles and ideas which you believe matter? So unless you disbelieve that C.O.A.S.T. is associated with the Tea Party, in which case I refer you back to, it is absolutely undeniable that Christopher Smitherman has aligned himself with the Tea Party].

Thank you for your time.
