Video footage of The Velvet Underground‘s drummer Moe Tucker coming out in support of the Tea Party movement in the USA has surfaced online.

A news broadcast from the WALB network shows an interview with Tucker, in which she says she is sick of how the country is supposedly being led towards socialism.

The interview was filmed earlier this year in Georgia at a meeting of the group, which is affiliated with the Republican party and opposes many federal laws introduced by the Democrats.

Since the story has been picked up, Tucker was contacted by the Huffington Post, which reports her confirming that she does appear in it.
