Electrostatic attraction cause of waving moon flag?

After seeing so much debate on whether the U.S. flag that was posted on the moon, was waving because of the air movement caused by an astronaut walking by, or not, I began to wonder. Has anyone ever thought of some sort of attraction?

Could it be that the astronaut, who is dressed in a large amount of nylon, packed with a #load of electronics, has an electric/magnetic field around him that had enough power to partially attract the nylon flag? If so, that would explain the movenment.

How does an electrostatic field behave on the moon anyway? Is it stronger or weaker in that enviroment?

From what I've read on the topic, the waving motion was caused by the telescopic rod holding the flag not extending out fully.
