Guitar maker partners with Tea Party against government

Help

They may form an unexpected match but the maker of Gibson guitars and the Tea Party have joined together to protest against the US government.

Federal agents raided a Gibson factory under suspicion the company was importing illegal wood for guitars, and an investigation is currently under way.

Gibson's CEO, Henry Juszkiewicz, is proclaiming his company's innocence - and using the Tea Party to help him make some noise.

But Mr Juszkiewicz does not count himself as a Tea Party member and he bemoans the divisiveness of the political arena.
