This group of Tea Party supporters in Ithaca decided to carry signs outside Republican Tom Reed’s office, which must have felt like a poke in the eye to most Ithacans.

Hey, poking Ithaca in the eye is my job!

A couple of pictures of the Ithaca Tea Party’s rally outside Congressman Reed’s office on Friday.

Wanted to thank him for standing up in support of hard-working American families and urge him to stay strong and not back down.

Reed’s office was closed but we got some thumbs up and honks.
