Nazi Flag At Bloomsburg Fair Sparks Outrage On Social Media

BLOOMSBURG, Pa. (CBS) -- A Nazi flag allegedly seen hanging at a vendor stand at a Pennsylvania fair this weekend has sparked both outrage and political discussion after photos of the flag began to circulate on Facebook.

In the posts, a white and red flag with a swastika symbol can be seen hanging from a vendor's trailer with Pennsylvania tags. Also hanging from the trailer is a Trump "Make America Great Again" flag, prompting political discussion just hours before the Presidential Debate.

The Bloomsburg Fair issued a statement on Facebook in response to the flag, saying they were "initially unaware of the flag" and had difficulty monitoring each of the 1200 vendors.
