Democrats call for Zorn to be censured for Confederate flag mask in long, slow session day

Days after state Sen. Dale Zorn (R-Ida) came under fire for wearing a Confederate flag-patterned face mask to session, two Democratic lawmakers took to the Senate floor to call on Zorn to be formally censured.

State Sens. Sylvia Santana (D-Detroit) and Erika Geiss (D-Taylor) also proposed a resolution that would ban Confederate flag imagery from the state Capitol.

Their impassioned speeches capped off an almost six-hour-long session in the state Legislature Wednesday, which was also marked by the dramatic removal of three protesters from the House gallery — including a Republican state House candidate — but not much else.

Zorn initially defended the mask and the Confederate flag, but then apologized later. Santana first condemned Zorn’s actions, referring to the Confederate flag as a “symbol of hatred” that represents a dark time in American history.
