Former New York Gov. David Paterson said Monday that Rep. Charles Rangel's comments on the tea party were "out of line."

Paterson told former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on his radio show Monday that when he was doing his own radio show in New York, he respected his listeners, many of whom were tea party supporters. A few bad eggs don't represent the group as a whole, Paterson said.
