City denies Tea Partiers free meter fees
I thought they didn't like the idea of anything in government 'FREE'.

1. This is more about ParkIndy than the teabaggers.
You're spot on about them being against government handouts for anyone but themselves but this crackdown is because Ballard "privatized" our parking meters in another one of his shady deals:

Department of Public Works spokeswoman Molly Deuberry said meter closure fees get figured into the city's revenue sharing with new parking meter operator ParkIndy. Under the terms of the 50-year lease, the city gets an annual allotment of parking meter closures before it must compensate ParkIndy for lost revenue.
