Tea party figure Phillips disbarred again

Attorney Judson Phillips, the founder of Tea Party Nation, has been disbarred again, WSMV-TV reports.

“Mr. Phillips consented to disbarment because he could not successfully defend himself on charges alleged in forty-one pending disciplinary complaints,” according to the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Board of Professional Responsibility.

Phillips was previously disbarred last year after clients alleged his withheld unreasonable fees for work related to timeshare litigation.

Phillips organized the 2010 National Tea Party Convention in Nashville. He has been a regular contributor to the conservative Tennessee Star website.

    Says alot about the Tennessee Star.

    IF the tea parties band together, then they become another party just like any other and will eventually become corrupt. Make no mistake, if they become viable, they will be taken over by the ‘insiders’. And/or they will eventually become either a Monolithic or Parliamentary organization. If they become Monolithic, then who ever becomes the boss (or bosses) may alienate the rest of the ‘party’. If they become Parliamentary, then they will become a democracy and may alienate 49% of the ‘party’. Also, IF they retain their autonomy, then their power is disbursed and the ‘powers’ that be will not worry about them (and will want them to continue to exist because separately they are ineffective).

    Just another grifter showing his true colors. It’s time for the Republican party to deal with these con-artists.
