In addition to Breitbart, featured speakers also include controversial former Federal Election Commissioner Hans A. von Spakovsky, former Department of Justice attorney Christian Adams, self-described “ACORN whistleblower” Anita Moncrief and conservative author/columnist John Fund.
Breitbart has founded several media websites and is a prominent conservative author and commentator for the Washington Times and on television. Spakovsky is now a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation. The national summit will take place March 25-26; registration for the entire event is $150. Registration is required for members of the media.
The recent statewide event drew about 80 participants and also featured appearances by Adams and Moncrief. Now heading the Election Law Center, Adams resigned from the DOJ over alleged voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party, accusing the DOJ of racial bias. Moncrief is a spokesperson for conservative group American Majority, publisher of right-wing website EmergingCorruption.com and leader of the new Crispus Attucks Tea Party in Houston, the first minority tea party group in Texas.
During the statewide summit, Moncrief said she planned to connect King Street Patriots leaders with national conservative players in Washington, D.C., which is gearing up for the national Conservative Political Action Conference Feb. 10-12, where Breitbart is also slated to be a featured speaker. Moncrief also said she planned to initiate a national True the Vote project based in D.C.
