Enough Is Enough… South Carolina GOP Branch Censures Progressive Lindsey Graham
Enough Is Enough…
Just last month Lindsey Graham told reporters,
“The tea party will die out… Republicans will move away from the fringe.”
Now those “fringe” voters want to send Graham their own message.
South Carolina Republican Party members have had enough from progressive Senator Lindsey Graham. The Aiken County Republican Party recently approved a formal censure of the controversial senator.
The Herald Online reported, via Free Republic:
The Aiken County Republican Party has approved a formal censure of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
The party’s executive committee took the action Thursday, joining a handful of other county parties, including Greenville’s GOP.
Committee member Pete Seaha, who also is the Aiken County Tea Party chairman, wrote the resolution and introduced it at the meeting. The resolution states in part that Graham won’t be invited to any party meetings or events.
“I don’t believe the senator is sticking to conservative Republican principles,” said Seaha. “In my mind, the senator has disrespected his constituents. He has said publicly on a talk show that he didn’t care what they thought.”
Seaha said it was his understanding that 18 people on the executive committee supported the resolution, while two opposed it and two abstained.
Kevin Bishop, a Graham spokesman, said via e-mail that while some of the senator’s friends may not want to meet with him, “his door will always be open. Sen. Graham respects those who disagree with him, but he strongly believes we need to keep an open dialogue.”
