Why the Marion County Commission voted to raise Confederate flag

While South Carolina debates removing a Confederate flag from public property, Florida's Marion County just put a Confederate flag back up.

The county had removed the flag after nine people were gunned down in the church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina, but the commissioners unanimously voted to raise it yet again.

We sent FOX 13 Chief Investigator Craig Patrick to ask why, and Commission Chairman Stan McClain sat down with him.

McClain said the decision was based on history. So Craig asked him to explain the history, and his vote.

"There are five flags that flew over Florida during periods of time and this is one of the five flags," he said, later conceding, "you could probably add more."
