The Plum Line's Greg Sargent is asking the question, and it might be telling that the campaign of Nevada GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle has gone quiet on the matter:

The Tea Party Express is under fire because its leader, Mark Williams, recently posted a satirical letter from "the Colored People" to President Lincoln praising slavery. The ensuing controversy got the group expelled from the Tea Party Federation, and the group continues to get pummeled by critics on all sides.

But there's one person who still has not disowned the Tea Party Express: Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle.

And she may even be taking their fundraising dollars, too: I can't get the Angle campaign to tell me whether they will continue taking money that the Tea Party Express is raising for her effort to topple Harry Reid.

Apparently, according to Sargent, Team Angle was asked days ago about whether they were still taking the cash from the disgraced faction. It is worth noting, however, that the group is still (as of this morning) making a fundraising appeal for Angle on the front page of their website.

Something to consider the next time one of the Beltway insiders ties to argue that the Reid campaign has "painted" Angle as an out-of-the-mainstream candidate.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
