U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) has been censured by yet another local Republican Party organization, the website BenSwann.com is reporting.
With the support of 78 percent of its members, the Pickens County Republican Party passed a cookie cutter resolution this week accusing Graham of committing “a long series of actions that we strongly disapprove of and hold to be fundamentally inconsistent with the principles of the South Carolina Republican Party.”
The resolution lists roughly thirty such actions – most of them copied and pasted from prior censure resolutions against Graham.
Included on the list? Graham’s support for the National Security Agency’s domestic spying program, his vote in favor of a massive new internet tax, his interventionist warmongering in Syria and of course his support of U.S. President Barack Obama’s radical enviro-liberal agenda.
Previously this year Graham was censured by Republicans in Chesterfield, Fairfield and Greenville Counties. In previous years, he’s been censured by Republicans in Charleston, Lexington and Greenville – and it’s likely many additional GOP groups would be adopting such resolutions were it not for prohibitions imposed by their leaders.
Graham is facing four announced challengers in the GOP primary this June – social conservative businessman Richard Cash, S.C. Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg), Charleston businesswoman Nancy Mace and Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor.
