Actors hired to protest . . . and where have I heard the name Everett "Dirksen" Wilkinson?

Christine Stapleton at The Palm Beach Post is all over the story about the actors brought in to protest the SFWMD meeting yesterday. There is one name that stands out, Everett Wilkinson:
     Also at the protest Thursday was Everett Wilkinson, chairman of the South Florida Tea Party, [emphasis added] who said he did not know who had hired the protesters.
     But he did speak about the issue that the Tea Party of Miami cited as the reason for the protest in an email sent Monday — the purchase of 46,800 acres of land south of Lake Okeechobee that environmentalists want the district to make from U.S. Sugar for an estimated $500 million.
     “This has basically turned into a billion dollar boondoggle,” Wilkinson said of the land deal. “We’re here to stop wasteful spending.”
Everett "Dirksen" Wilkinson is known for an email he sent on July 12, 2013. Mr. Wilkinson felt it necessary to get his thoughts on the Trayvon Martin case out to the entire world in an email sent to "Patriot". Here are the three first paragraphs:
     I firmly believe that Obama and his thugs want to destroy America. [emphasis added] Yesterday we learned that the DOJ organized “Anti-George Zimmerman Protests” with tax payers’ money and the Black Panthers are busing thousands to Florida. In addition, we have been told that the media is being told by the government not to report on “violent flash mobs.”
     These mobs are pure evil and are like a pack of “rabid dogs” that have lost any semblance of humanity. This is not going to be just a Florida issue, but rather a countrywide explosion. Recent examples would “Black mob attacks pregnant White woman” and “Black mob beats man for Trayvon.”
     You need to be aware and protect yourself against these “flash mobs” and stock up on supplies now. The obvious things you need are firearms, ammunition, maps, food, water, full tank of gas and/or “Bug Out Bag Survival Bag” and/or “Urban Survival Kit.” I would also highly recommend a CB radio or ham radio because the cell phone towers may be overloaded or shut off.
Mr. Everett "Dirksen" Wilkinson isn't exactly the fella you want on your side of the issue, or any issue for that matter.
