Tea Partiers Gather in Riverbank Park

Part history lesson, part community picnic, part
political revolution. The Cumberland County tea party rally was a little bit of
each. More than 100 people gathered Sunday afternoon at Riverside Park in
Westbrook to listen to speeches by political candidates--including three
independent candidates for governor, tea party leaders and some patriotic
musical classics, such as Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA." "We're
rediscovering our Constitution and what it means," said Dean Scontras, a
Republican running to unseat U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, a Democrat, in Maine's
1st Congressional District.
