"Simmering frustration among Latino voters has prompted a tea party-style endeavor that’s intended to boost the political influence of America’s fastest-growing minority group. 'We want to motivate Latinos to vote,' says Belinda 'DeeDee' Blase, spokeswoman for the fledgling National Tequila Party Movement, which has adopted a nonpartisan stance. '[Democrats and Republicans] don’t take us seriously because we don’t vote consistently.' Through rallies and concerts in at least 20 states, the group wants to mobilize Latinos to vote in record-breaking numbers in the 2012 election."
