House candidate Nolan West deletes pro-Confederate, anti-Lincoln postings

 


Nolan West, a GOP legislative aide who is now a candidate for an open House seat, apologized Tuesday for his Facebook posts that lauded the Confederacy and castigated President Abraham Lincoln.

“I apologize for posting insensitive material,” West said in an e-mail. “I’ve taken those posts down because they do not reflect who I am or what I believe.”

On the day South Carolina removed the Confederate battle flag from its statehouse grounds in 2015, West reposted an advertisement for the flags on his Facebook page, continuing his history of publicly expressing admiration for the Confederacy and disdain for Lincoln.
