Bright: Graham’s “Outside Money” Whining Is Ironic
With over six million dollars in the bank, much of it from outside lobbyists, Team Graham continues to whine in their fundraising solicitations about “outside money” used against them. This is backed up by a report from earlier this year that shows Graham received a larger percentage of his campaign funds from lobbyists and bundlers than any other member of either House of Congress, with Harry Reid second and Chuck Schumer third.
“Lindsey Graham is a creature of Washington, and all creatures of Washington have a lot of outside money at their disposal” said Bright, a Tea Party and liberty group favorite who is challenging Graham in 2014. “Our government is sucking the lifeblood out of the country, and while Lindsey Graham and almost everybody else in DC is doing well, people outside the beltway are hurting.”
“You can’t make that up,” said Bright of The Center for Public Integrity’s report lumping Graham, Reid and Schumer together. “And to think, he wasn’t even on the ballot in 2012, and yet – he’s such a beltway insider, and such a part of government’s theft of our liberties, that he still raked in the lobby cash.”
“My goal is to drive property values down in Washington,” said Bright, “which will drive values up everywhere else. Our government is way too big, too powerful and too invasive, and government is stealing the country. Graham is part of that problem. It’s time to retire him and start taking the nation back.”
