Senate votes 37-3 to remove Confederate battle flag from Statehouse grounds

When the bill crosses the hall, it’ll likely be met with an amendment by Rep. Mike Pitts, R-Laurens, who said he’d like to see the battle flag replaced with Bonnie Blue. 

4:07 p.m. update: Members of the South Carolina Senate have voted 37-3 to remove the Confederate battle flag from the Statehouse grounds.

Sen. Lee Bright, R-Roebuck, objected to giving the bill automatic third reading, which is usually a procedural vote, on Tuesday. For the bill to be sent to the House, it will need a two-thirds vote. 

Monday’s three ‘nay’ votes were from Bright, and Sens. Harvey Peeler and Danny Verdin. Plus, for the bill to be amended on third reading, it would need a three-fifths vote.

    The harder they try to get rid of it the more attention and promotion it will get....like Obama with guns...record sells under his admin.

    1. Agreed and their wholesale surrender should make every one of them with Confederate ancestors cower like the cowards they are and may their kin spit upon them and never speak to them again. Disgraceful.

  5. Have you seen this one: the Christian Flag lording over the Union Flag.
    At NASCAR, a camper had the Confederate Flag lording over the Union Flag,
    as it should be:
