US Tea Party convention begins

Conservative group to hold its first convention amid queries about its finances.

    The first national Tea Party convention is getting underway in the US.

    The conservative political movement named itself after the Boston Tea Party of 1773 in which Americans protested against British taxation.

    The modern-day group objects to the tax policies of the Obama administration, and what they call "big government interference".

    As Cath Turner reports from Nashville, some are questioning the group's own finances.
