U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) has reportedly been censured again by one of the state’s largest, most influential Republican party organizations.

Note we said “Republican” Party … not Tea Party.

By a vote of 56-24, the Greenville (S.C.) County Republican reportedly voted to censure Graham this week. News of the censure was first reported by Jeff Quinton of The Quinton Report.

Obviously this wouldn’t be the first time the liberal lawmaker has faced a rebuke from his own party. In fact Graham has been censured by county parties in Chesterfield and Fairfield already this year – by overwhelming majorities. In previous years, he’s been censured by Republicans in Charleston, Lexington and Greenville. In fact many more GOP groups would likely be adopting such resolutions were it not for prohibitions imposed by their leaders.

Graham is running for reelection in 2014. He faces three announced primary opponents – social conservative businessman Richard Cash, S.C. Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg) and Charleston businesswoman Nancy Mace.

Almost makes me nostalgic for the 80s, when the Republican party committee in Fayette County, Kentucky was run by Right to Life.

At least, they were not trying to make the US government default on its debt obligations.

Philip Branton October 8, 2013 at 10:29 am

Ya know…..the “Fitsnews Republican Caucus” has censured Graham on a daily basis and look where Graham is still at..!?

Does Wil Folks really call this “NEWS”..? No wonder the Post and Courier or the State does not link to it. We wonder if the Nancy Mace campaign even links to this article?

If the “twerking Bob Jones” crowd in Greenville really wants to “censure” Graham then they need to show voters they understand how to ask Graham a “drone” question concerning Somalia. What effect did that “seal” action have on World OIL “bets”..!? Does Graham not understand how voters “pay” at the pump to fund his campaign…!!
Those Bob Jones students will only be blinded for so LONG. Mild discussions at Pete’s Drive-in can lead to major awareness at the voting booth.

Graham, your days as Senator are numbered………….

Bill October 8, 2013 at 10:31 am

Just what SC needs to do: vote out one of only 2 SC elected officials we have in DC with any power: Clyburn and Graham.

Committing political suicide is a pass time in SC.

Just a bunch of ignorant fools surrounded by NC and Ga., or the blind leading the blind.

Smirks October 8, 2013 at 10:34 am

Who gives a shit about power? I’d rather have people who actually vote in the best interests of Americans than two powerful clods who consistently vote against the best interests of Americans. Clyburn and his self-worship, and Graham and his worship of the military-industrial complex, do not better the average American, far from it in fact. Throw them both to the wind.

Considering the dismal state of this state, I don’t think the rest of America wants any SC politician to be in a position of power anyways.

CNSYD October 8, 2013 at 10:41 am

Smirks, I am concerned about you living in this dismal state. What can you do to rectify your situation?

johnq October 8, 2013 at 2:03 pm

Uh…make it less dismal by throwing the idiots out?

“Ignorance”, is the bone-headed idea that because your politician is on this committee or that, this panel or that, or otherwise has “clout”, that he or she is worthy of re-election because of what they “might” can do for your state, your county, or whatever.

When those politicians go rogue, as has Lindsey, McCain, and others, they are not benefitting anyone but their closest political and financial cronies. They are NOT benefiting our country, our state, or anyone but themselves. They need to be voted out of office at the earliest possible opportunity.

TontoBubbaGoldstein October 8, 2013 at 2:12 pm

President Obama is the arguably the most powerful politician on the PLANET!

The US should rewrite the Constitution and install him as Dictator for Life.

If we don’t we are just ignorant fools surrounded by Canada and Mexico…

*Also, please learn to spell “pastime”, before calling out the ignorance of others.

Mr. Putin more than adequately refuted your first point as he gave little Barry a lesson in Presidential behavior.

tyroneButterballs October 8, 2013 at 10:49 am

I love Lindsey. He will win again. His enemies will be repudiated. He can turn to big money and friends like John McCain. He will get the vote of every normal Republican. Dems will turn for him. So will Independents.

Bobby Boucher October 8, 2013 at 11:16 am

Good new for Graham. The Greenville GOP just censured former SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly, the SCGOP and State Rep Alan Clemmons from Myrtle Beach. That vote was 73-9. Graham actually got 3 times the votes they did.

Same ol' Same ol' October 8, 2013 at 11:58 am

You all think for an instant that anyone who replaces him won’t turn quicker than a dead guy on TWD? Big money has its ways. Resistance is futile.

CorruptionInColumbia October 8, 2013 at 12:33 pm

At least we would be starting from scratch. We wouldn’t have a megalomaniac who has the connections, the influence, and the almighty POWER, that the incumbent has. He would have to learn the ropes of absolute corruption and start with baby steps, not big honking, leaps and bounds, as our current senior senator takes when trying to damage this country or benefit himself.

Give all the crooks a fair chance at any given office. Politicians are garbage, but they are also like it in that they start to smell after they have been there for too long.

Wanda Lancaster October 9, 2013 at 2:58 pm

Big money can campaign and lie. Only we the people can decide who to believe and vote. I would certainly keep Graham over any of these right wingnuts

ThreePalms October 8, 2013 at 12:14 pm

…and yet, my republican friends are still in denial that they have lost control of their party.
Those update Rs censor Graham and think Lee Bright is Senatorial material. Bwaaahaaaaa.

EJB October 8, 2013 at 12:24 pm

Listened to Mr. Cash speak last night. When the time comes (if he makes it that far) and it’s a contest between him and one other candidate he will lose, his opponent will only have to stand up and say three words; “gay marriage” and “abortion”. Mr. Cash will pull out his guns and commence shooting himself in the foot, legs, hands, arms and eventually his own head (figuratively speaking). But he seems a good man.

US Senator Graham……..

When Wil Folks watches this video clip….

Graham needs to go! and Richard Eckstrom! and bobby Harrell!, and Nikki Haley!, and Harvey peeler, and Hugh leatherman, and Larry Martin,and Alan Wilson, and Joe Wilson, and Ronnie Cromer, and Luke Rankin, and Jim Clyburn, and Barak Obama, and Mark Sanford, and Bryan White, and the lexington Ring in their entirety! As a matter of fact, they all need to go top to bottom. The countey and the State are in a mess and the ONLY way to get things on the right track is to start over anew!!!

johnq October 8, 2013 at 1:41 pm

Shit, these tea weirdos censuring graham maybe the best thing to happen to Graham in a long while.

When the US defaults on the debt the extremist teafucks in what is left of the republican party are going to be persona non grata in all political circles.

Even moderate assholes like Graham are going to have the shit stains from the teatards on him for a long, long time.

May I approach the Bench October 8, 2013 at 4:45 pm

Graham lost my vote when he recomended the absolute worse Family Court Judge in the State to the Federal Bench. The judge was rumored to be one of Toals favorite Judges (between the lines her boy, in her hip pocket). I contacted his office and made him aware of my thoughts and feelings and was treated rather poorly. This person was, in my opinion unqualified, should have moved up the ranks and possibly dishonest, if not corruptible!

Philip Branton October 9, 2013 at 11:17 am

LOL…..may YOU approach the bench…..?

No….No…..NO…..U may not approach the BeNCH…!! (Fist Poundzzzz)

Matter of fact, you can sit yourself down in the front seat of Lindsey Graham’s Taxi and start asking him some questions about where he plans to work after he is elected out of office…!!

Do you realize that you are in BOB JONES “country”…!?! DID Jesus ever approach a BENCH…? Matter of fact, would Jesus ask “May I” to any judge before he walked up to ask any judge a question…??

You can ask to approach “Graham’s Port-a-potty” if you want too…..

This is a LARGE part of the problem! Once elected, they focus on raising money, getting cozy with lobbyist to get more money, then use the money to advertise, pry us with trinkits (subsidized by the tax payers in the House and Senate gift shops). We continue to vote for them treat them like royalty until they are convinced they actually are. The the seat/office they hold becomes theirs, not the peoples! How many times have we heard them refer to their seat!? How dare anyone run for their seat!
We are our own worse enemy!
ote them ALL out!

That doesn’t make a reason for us not to correct the current situation where traitor Graham occupies OUR seat of senior Senator.

The Beaufort County Republican Party voted against censuring Graham, doggone it.
