MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- A New Hampshire group trying to take a stand against government spending is changing its tactics a bit after causing a hazmat scare at a congressional office.
Staffers at Rep. Carol Shea-Porter's Manchester office called police last week when the received an envelope full of tea leaves from a Pelham dentist. Similar "tea party" protests have been popping up around the country to express opposition to the federal stimulus package and other government spending.
WMUR-TV reports that New Hampshire organizers are now asking people to scale back, and send a tag from a tea bag instead of the tea itself.
