Mobile County Commission leaves Confederate flag outside Government Plaza and on police vehicles

Via Billy

Measures before the Mobile County Commission that would have removed images of the Confederate flag from government property failed to gain enough votes Monday to be made into law.

Two resolutions were put forth my Commissioner Merceria Ludgood. One measure would have removed the third national Confederate flag from the courtyard outside Government Plaza, and the other proposed to remove images of the Confederate Battle flag from vehicles operated by sheriff's deputies.

Ludgood made motions to pass both resolutions, but each one failed for a lack of a second from either Commissioner Connie Hudson or Commission President Jerry Carl.
