In May, Agustín “Gus” García, a Latino political powerhouse who was one of Hilary Clinton’s top consultants for her 2008 presidential bid, was identified by CNN as the Tequila Party’s top political strategist. During that time, García said the following to CNN:

 

 

“I think first you have to understand the humor of calling it the Tequila Party. We are a culture that likes humor,” the movement’s main political consultant, Agustin “Gus” Garcia, told CNN.

“We’re not Puritans. Humor is part of our politics as well. We could have called it the ‘Cafe con Leche Party.’ You have to laugh because there is no logic in racism.”

As the fall approaches, García is no longer involved with the Tequila Party, citing his busy lecture Latinization of America Lecture Series schedule.

García, a Democrat, had joined forces with Somos Republicans founder and Tequila Party leader Dee Dee García Blase to launch the Tequila Party on Cinco de Mayo of this year. The duo made several high-profile media appearance, yet could not garner the national support they sought among Latino voters.

We reached out to García Blase for comment and have yet to hear from her. The Tequila Party organization recently had its articles of organization rejected by Arizona’s Corporate Commission.

In a move that has discredited its founder, the Arizona Corporate Commission recently rejected an application by the National Tequila Party Movement to incorporate itself in Arizona as a domestic limited liability corporation.

Arizona listed a “potential name conflict” that potentially invalidates the Tequila Party. Arizona listed a “potential name conflict” that potentially invalidates the Tequila Party. The current application expired last week.

We did reach out to both Somos Republican and Blase Garcia for comment, but they have not returned our requests.

This morning, we received this private Facebook message from Tequila Party founder, Dee Dee García Blase (who btw the has blocked us from all her Facebook pages and isn’t even a Facebook friend of us:). A FACEBOOK TIP TO DEE DEE: we received your comments from anonymous sources. Just being good reporters, we guess.

Guess Dee Dee doesn’t like us that much:

Please contact our lawyer and civil rights attorney Shirl Mora James of Nebraska for the Tequila Party if you have any issues. You have slandered me from the beginning. What I say on my own facebook page is my business. You use your venues to cry, and I won’t give you any attention that you seek. What I write on my facebook is my business, and indeed you take issue with the name because you questioned me on the name from the get go and asked me why not the “Rum Party”. As I have told you before, start an Lemonada Party, DO SOMETHING instead of complaining about my efforts. Learn from Puerto Rican Luis Gutierrez who knows and respects Mexican-Americans. You have a lot of growing up to do and I wish you the best. This will be my last response to you.

 Love you too, Dee Dee.
