Perhaps the reason you are being recalled is that you make up stories, or you're are not truthful. You are aware the Tea Party is not involved in your recall, and you have been told this by the Tea Party.
As vice President of the Tea Party, I would know if we were involved - we are not in any way. If we were, then the petition would already have enough signatures.
I suggest that if you are going to fight, you fight the right group and apologize to the Chattanooga Tea Party.

As a general rule, I would strongly advise you to never apologize to any type of homophobic overtly racist group, whether they have targeted you specifically or not.
On a different note, as for the Tea Party and their boastful claims, I'm sure if they had the requisite number of rabid members living in your particular district, the petitions would have already been signed, sealed, and delivered to City Hall. I do realize I have painted the Tea Party with a broad brush, and for that I apologize to the minority of them that are good and decent folk.
Maybe you should wisely ignore those "that doth protest too much" and continue to represent your constituents in an honest and forthright manner. We need more smart and articulate folks in government and less buffoons. Kudos to you for staying the course.

Like you, Mark West, and Charles Wysong, I don't live in Councilman Anderson's district, but I can certainly understand the confusion surrounding who is involved in the recall effort. I suppose the early reports by this and other media sources where Mr. Wysong indicated that Mark West among other local Tea Party members, in addition to the Citizens for Government Accountability and Transparency political action committee were involved added to the confusion. I can see how the wrong conclusion could be made. I truly believe that neither of the organizations has any official involvement.
Now, the extent that Tea Party members are involved---well, that's nothing I can speculate about. Whether it's "boots on the ground" or "strategic advice," I'm sure those responsible for the recall will accept all available assistance. Perhaps such arms-length assistance is the better choice anyway.
You say, "As vice president of the Tea Party, I would know if we were involved - we are not in any way. If we were, then the petition would already have enough signatures."
Such hubris built countless bridges too far and at least one ship named the 'Titanic.'
