Congressman implies Mississippi state flag 'hateful'

A U.S. representative compared a controversial painting hanging in an art gallery at the U.S. Capitol Tuesday with the Mississippi state flag, which contains the Confederate flag emblem.

"You're not permitted to have hateful stuff in the Capitol — that's why you don't have the Mississippi flag up, right?" said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-California, as he hauled the painting away. His comment was captured in a video posted to Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
