    National Democrats tried Monday evening to raise funds off the South Carolina Confederate flag flap, reports The Washington Times.

    In a blast email sent after 7 p.m. Monday, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said the issue of the Confederate flag, which zoomed to the front of national consciousness after a white supremacist was charged with nine counts of murder after a shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, was “not over yet.”
