Zorn has maintained that the pattern of the face mask is not a confederate flag, but similar to the state flags of Kentucky and Tennessee.

“I told my wife it probably will raise some eyebrows, but it was not a Confederate flag,” Zorn told WLNS.

But Zorn has acknowledged that the face-covering bears resemblance to the confederate flag and has apologized via Twitter.

Still, other lawmakers say the apology isn't enough.
