Post: ‘Tea party’ protesters accused of spitting, using slurs

By Charles Ashby

In a March 20 story in the Washington Post, "tea party" members protesting a pending vote in Washington, D.C., on President Barack Obama's health care legislation were accused of spitting on one lawmaker and uttering racial and sexual orientation slurs at others.

The story, found here, said angry protesters heckled U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., with anti-gay chants. Frank is Congress' most well-known gay lawmaker.

The story also said U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., was spit on, while others openly used the n-word against U.S. Reps. John Lewis, D-Ga., and Andre Carson, D-Ind. Lewis and Carson are black.
