Patriots at CPAC are on the hunt for Ben Franklin today. After all, who wouldn’t want to meet a lovable Founding Father? Especially one who supports the right to bear free drink tickets, courtesy of the Franklin Center!

People who tweet a pic with Ben using the hashtag #IMetBen are also eligible to win a free camera.

Of course, every party has a party-pooper.

But that didn’t stop conference goers from proudly proclaiming “#IMetBen.”

@dinafraioli wants to tell the whole world #imetben #cpac2013
