The Tea Party is calling for the resignation of Indiana Democratic congressman Andre Carson after he said the party wanted to see Black people hanging from trees.
Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin of the Tea Party Patriots described Rep. Andre Carson’s remarks as “disgusting” and “hateful” in a statement to the Daily News.
“Rep. Carson should immediately resign from Congress,” it read.
“He is clearly not fit to serve,” the statement added. “At a minimum, he should be removed from leadership in the Congressional Black Caucus, and censured by his colleagues. If they refuse to take these actions, they are sending a clear statement to the American public that it is acceptable for ‘leaders’ in Congress to wantonly accuse their fellow members and the American public of desiring murder.”
