Flag Used by Tea Party Could Become Alabama Tag

Aug 25, 2014

Alabama vehicles could soon be sporting tags featuring the rattlesnake emblem and "Don't Tread on Me" warning popular with tea party groups.

A Montgomery-based organization founded by Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, the Foundation for Moral Law, is trying to get 1,000 people to pre-order the tags. That's how many pre-orders are required for the state to begin making the tags. The tags cost $50, with $41.25 going to the foundation. It says it will use the money to defend the Alabama and U.S. constitutions.

The founder of the Alabama Patriots tea party group, Danny Joyner, says he plans to order one of the tags, and he expects the foundation to get 1,000 pre-orders quickly.
