Sussex County lawmaker defends photo with Confederate flag

There were no shortage of antiques up for sale at the annual Sussex Flea Market, but one relic of the past flapping in the wind caused a stir among some shoppers. “I passed one stall and I saw they were flying the Confederate flag,” said Katherine Piercey, a patron of the market. It was flying at the corner of a beige tent co-run by Tommy Mullin. Inside the tent, Confederate flags and bandanas with the same pattern were up for sale, alongside fidget spinners and bedazzled hats.

Key Takeaways:

  • A Sussex County lawmaker is defending a photo he shared on Facebook of himself and his wife standing by a Confederate flag.
  • The flag features the singer’s face along with the inscription, “If the South would’ve won, we would’ve had it made.”
  • The Democratic Assembly candidates Kate Matteson and Gina Trish called Space’s behavior “disrespectful to the thousands of constituents he represents.”
