New York congressman Charlie Rangel appears to flip off a heckler at yesterday's Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade:

"Hey, Charlie! Charlie, you're a crook, you're a crook! You cheated on your taxes. You're a crook! Stop trying to get your censure overturned--it was rightfully done. You're a crook! You're a crook, Charlie. Charlie, you're a crook. You crook! Charlie, you're a crook. Charlie, you're a crook. Charlie, you're a crook. You're a crook, Charlie. You can give me the finger all you want. You're a crook. You're nothing but a crook, Charlie. You got censured and now you're trying to overturn it, becaure you're a crook. You're a crook. Charlie, you're nothing but a crook. You cheated on your taxes. How many city supported apartments did you have? You cheated on your taxes. You should be in jail. You're a crook. You should be in jail. Give me the finger again, yeah. You're a crook. You should be in jail. You crook," yells the heckler.

The heckler appears to be Joseph Bassolino, better known as Joey Boots.
