An NAACP leader in North Carolina said Tuesday that the tea party is actively seeking out minorities to use as "mouthpieces."
"They frantically seek out people of color to become mouthpieces for their particular agenda," the Rev. William Barber said on a conference call.
Barber, the head of the North Carolina NAACP, recently caused controversy by comparing Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the lone black Republican in Congress, to ... at an event in South Carolina last month.
