Skip to comments.Bomb Threat Forces Evacuation of DC TEA Party Planners
Posted on 09/11/2009 3:03:43 PM PDT by xtinct
On the eve of what organizers call a 'Big Ol' TEA Party', the Washington, D.C., offices of FreedomWorks were evacuated by DC Metro police on Friday afternoon after the conservative organization reported to authorities at 3:42 pm ET that it had received a bomb threat.
At 4:48 pm ET, the organization put out a Twitter message saying that it turned out to be a false alarm but the organization is not happy about the disruption.
My colleague, ABC News' Teddy Davis has the story:
Tens of thousands of anti-big government activists are expected in Washington on Saturday as part of a "March on Washington" being organized by FreedomWorks, a conservative group headed by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, R-Texas.
A FreedomWorks staffer told ABC News that the organization's offices at 601 Pennsylvania Avenue were evacuated on Friday afternoon by DC Metro Police because of a bomb scare.
DC Metro police has confirmed to ABC News' Jason Ryan that the DC Metro police had, indeed, evacuated the organization's offices after being told by the organization that it had received a bomb threat.
The threat came when a man called the FreedomWorks main line and told the organization's female receptionist: "I put a bomb in your building, bitch."

Real classy to pull this stunt on 9/11. I wouldn’t expect anything less from these low lifes.
More “Peace, Love and Understanding” from the left.
No, he wouldn’t want to get his hands dirty. Probably made Michelle call.
All of those who couldn’t make it to DC need to pray for our FReedom-loving friends who are in-transit, arriving, or working to set up for this event.
I do give kudos to ABC for reporting on this.
You didn’t expect the left not to try and disrupt things did you? This was just practice.
I can expect that in the near future, they won’t be just threats.
Good, let’s just get it over with, it’s inevitable. They hate us, we hate them, it’s getting worse and the outcome is inevitable.
At what price Sacrifice?
Was there news breaks on all the networks to cover this? A DC bomb threat on 9/11 should be huge news.
or it would be before Soros bought the Democrat Party lock, stock and barrel.
I don’t think this country was this divided in the 1860s according to the history I have read.
