Have the Black Panthers joined the Tea Party?

Apparently, Trey Grayson thinks so

In Kentucky, where the first polls were set to close at 6 p.m., the final hours of the race brought accusations of “voter intimidation” from Secretary of State Trey Grayson’s Senate campaign. Grayson’s campaign manager charged that supporters of conservative insurgent Rand Paul were engaging in “bullying and intimidation,” saying in a statement: “Rand Paul needs to rein in his goon squad and follow the law.”

Paul appeared to hold a strong upper hand over Grayson as voters headed to the polls, and in a radio interview poked a rhetorical finger in the eye of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky power broker whose political operation has strongly supported Grayson’s candidacy.

You know, those tea partiers, they’re an unruly lot.
