Tip of the hat to Rep. Jenny Horne (R) of South Carolina โ€” and Jefferson Davis descendent โ€” who implored her fellow representatives on the SC House floor, โ€œI 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.โ€

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.
