Has The Velvet Underground's Moe Tucker joined America's Tea Party movement?

A 'Moe Tucker' crops up on US news broadcast criticising country's 'move towards socialism'

Video footage of what appears to be The Velvet Underground's drummer Moe Tucker coming out in support of the Tea Party movement in the USA has surfaced online.

A new broadcast from the WALB network shows an interview with a Maureen 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.
