New parties registered to muddy political waters

Las Vegas Sun:
"Political operatives in Nevada have adopted a new tactic to confuse voters and influence elections. They are co-opting the names of political movements with which they have no affiliation — and often those they’re at odds with.

Remember U.S. Senate candidate Jon Scott Ashjian’s “Tea Party of Nevada”? Those claiming to be true Tea Party adherents claimed he was an impostor, and sued in a failed attempt to remove him from the ballot.

Another example came last week when a former Republican organizer registered the name “Tequila Party of Nevada” with the secretary of state’s office. This came two days after the Sun broke the news that Hispanic leaders were debating whether to form an independent grass-roots political group by the same name."
