Tip of the hat to Rep. Jenny Horne (R) of South Carolina — and Jefferson Davis descendent — who implored her fellow representatives on the SC House floor, “I cannot believe that we do not have the heart in this body to do something meaningful, such as take a symbol of hate off these grounds on Friday.”
This morning, the House voted 94 to 20 to pass the bill to remove the flag.
Gov. Haley is scheduled to sign the bill into law at 4 PM today. The bill will require that the flag be removed within 24 hours.
