George Flaggs hits back against ad questioning his credentials as a Democrat

A Mississippi state representative is hitting back against claims that he’s not a “real Democrat.”

Rep. George Flaggs, D-Vicksburg, made a fiery speech on the House floor Monday, in response to an ad in Sunday’s Vicksburg Post that attacked him.

The ad stated, “If you are a real Democrat who will vote like a real Democrat interested in running against George Flaggs as a Democrat in 2015,” to contact Lance Stevens, a Jackson lawyer listed as president of Democrats for Honest Government.
