Tax day comes next Friday, and one Florida tea party group will be hosting its third annual ‘TAX DAY’ event in Orlando. Among the many high-profile guests: a 2012 presidential hopeful who has called Planned Parenthood “Planned Genocide.”

Scheduled to attend are Ralph Reed, former Christian Coalition director and the founder of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos, talk radio host Bud Hedinger and 2012 presidential hopeful Herman Cain — who was recently in the news for saying he would not allow Muslims to serve in his administration and for calling Planned Parenthood “Planned Genocide.”

Also scheduled to attend is Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. Rubio told reporters in late January that he really did not see the need for a formal tea party caucus and dismissed it as “a little club.”

That law drew a court challenge that ultimately succeeded in changing it. They tried again in 2008, prompting another legal battle. Now, in the name of curbing fraudulent registrations, the Florida House has introduced a sweeping overhaul of the state's election laws that proposes new restrictions on third-party voter registration groups.
