Allen on FOX Interactive Town Hall Event Today


    George Allen will appear on Fox News’ “Happening Now” today. Leading up to the panel discussion there is an opportunity to submit questions and participate in a live chat from 11 AM to 1 PM. Allen joins at 12:30. He gratuitously pandered to the Tea Party on his website yesterday:

    “I guess we were “tea partiers” before it was cool because I’ve heard it said that the TEA in Tea Party stands for “taxed enough already,” and that was certainly the stand I took as governor.” – George Allen

    Allen raised over $300,000 in the most recent reporting period as he aims toward a political comeback in 2012. Damaged by using a racial slur during the 2006 campaign, his take on the current turmoil about racism in the Virginia Republican Party does not appear to be a topic at the top of Fox’s interest poll.
