South Carolina Senior's Senator Lindsey Graham Censured by Charleston GOP

http://www.fitsnews.com/2009/11/10/charleston-republicans-ce...

Make sure you vote at bottom of the page!

Here is the complete text of the censure resolution as provided to FITS:

Whereas, U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (SC) and John Kerry (MA) have called for a bipartisan bill dealing with “climate change” via a “Cap & Trade” energy bill;

Whereas, the basis of Cap & Trade – global warming caused by carbon emissions – is still in doubt as evidenced by the past decade of cooling temperatures;

Whereas, the people of South Carolina can ill afford the job-killing Cap & Trade bill’s ripple effects on our state’s economy and on personal energy bills;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham supported TARP and has shown a willingness to discuss nationalizing U.S. banking institutions;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham has shown a condescending attitude toward his constituents by calling them “bigots” when they oppose his stance on amnesty for illegal aliens;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham has stated on many occasions that his primary concern is to “be relevant”;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham continues to hold the Republican Party hostage and undermines Republican leadership and party solidarity for his own benefit by joining the “Gang of 10″ and the “Gang of 14″;

Whereas, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham – in the name of bipartisanship – continues to weaken the Republican brand and tarnish the ideals of freedom, rule of law, and fiscal conservatism.

Therefore, let it be resolved: The Charleston County Republican Party Executive Committee respectfully requests, with sincere sadness that the South Carolina Republican Party withdraw their resolution commending U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and that the Charleston Country Republican Party censure U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham for many of the positions he has taken that do not represent the wishes of the people of Charleston County SC, such as: passing a “Cap & Trade” energy bill, bailing out banks, and granting amnesty for illegal aliens.

Wow … don’t hold back, Charleston!

Anyway, this is not the first time Graham has been censured by a local Republican Party. In 2007, the Greenville GOP censured Graham for his position on illegal immigration.

Greenville Executive GOP Members Censure Lindsey Graham 8/2007

HERE'S WHERE IT STARTED ... OUR VERY FIRST MEETING EVER TO A GOP EXECUTIVE MEETING (WE HAD OVER 30+ RP ACTIVIST TO SHOW UP!)

http://theconservativist.com/2007/08/10/greenville-executive...

Excerpt ...
There are several individuals, including the Greenville News reporter Dan Hoover, who are claiming it was a small band of “RON PAUL Supporters” who led the censuring charge. The article can be found on The Greenville News website. Unfortunately, for Lindsey Graham and Dan Hoover, there are no known Ron Paul supporters that are a member of the Greenville Executive Board. And since I had to leave early, the opportunity for the video clips of the meeting and “censuring” were lost.

Although, Chris Lawton (NMLIFESTYLES) was still in attendance at the time of the vote, he was able to communicate to me that the group of Ron Paul supporters in the auditorium were silent. Before I had left, there may have been 7 sitting on one row outside of the committee member seating area. The other supporters were outside the auditorium staffing (volunteer staffing that is) a table to distribute Ron Paul materials.

With that said, there was no way a influx of Ron Paul supporters could have influenced the vote.

C'Mon Lindsey let's hear it

This is not the Charleston Republicans Republican party.

Let's hope SC can rid us of this menace to freedom sometime in the future.

Miamisburg, Montgomery County, Ohio

They just reelected the scumbag for another 6 year term. These

are not the same independent people that lived in SC when I was growing up there in the 40`s and 50`s.

Lindsey Graham continues to hold the Republican Party hostage and undermines Republican leadership and party solidarity for his own benefit,” the resolution reads. It then notes that Graham “continues to weaken the Republican brand and tarnish the ideals of freedom, rule of law, and fiscal conservatism.”
