Rangel: Tea party acts like Confederates

NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 26:  Congressman Charles Rangel arrives to supporters at his campaign headquarters after polls have closed in his race for the Democratic primary challenge in New York's 15th congressional district on June 26, 2012 in New York City. After a more than four-decades-long congressional career, Rangel fought for the Democratic nomination in a newly re-drawn congressional district that is no longer dominated by African Americans. The 82-year-old Rangel was locked in a race Tuesday for the nomination in his Harlem-area district with New York state Sen. Adriano Espaillat. Espaillat, a 57-year-old Dominican-American, has shown growing popularity in a district that now has more Latino-Americans than African-Americans.  (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
