Tea Partiers to hold telethon for Sullivan from Harrah’s in Reno

A Tea Party-affiliated political action committee that caused a stir in the US Senate race last week is now planning a weekend telethon to benefit Republican candidate Michael J. Sullivan — live from Reno, Nev.

“The telethon will broadcast LIVE from Harrah’s Reno hotel, but we are NEVER, EVER to mention that we will be doing the telethon from Reno,” said an organizer’s e-mail, obtained by the Globe. “We want viewers to assume the broadcast will be taking place from Massachusetts.”
