You can find an quick example of how to read the TIGER/Line data here:
scroll down to example #3.
I have done this, and it does work. However I would recommend
converting the ASCII files to ESRI Shapefiles. The ESRI files will
allow maps to be displayed much faster. If you have a small amount of
data, it might be alright. As you add data however, it will slow down
as ASCII is not very effecient for searching.
