Tea Party ousts subgroup after racial remarks

LOS ANGELES Mark Williams wrote an imaginary and incendiary letter that he called "From Colored People" to Abraham Lincoln.

It was in response to a call from the /*NAACP*/ to crack down on racist elements in the /*Tea Party*/.

Williams called the post satire and attributed his expulsion to "internal political dramas amongst the various self-anointed Tea Party leaders."

The group he represented, the Tea Party Express, was also removed from the greater Tea Party organization.
