Letter: Anderson County Censured Graham, Too

Dear Editor: I hope you are doing well.

Since you have published other counties, I wanted to let you know that the Anderson County Republican Party adopted the attached resolution at our November executive committee meeting (we had only 2 “no” votes and approximately 40 votes in favor).  Our members expressed particular concern over Sen. Graham’s abysmal record on civil liberties.

I am the state executive committeeman for Anderson County, and I plan to bring this resolution up at a future State Executive Committee meeting.

You can quote me on any of this.

Thanks,

Lee Cole
Anderson, S.C.

So really what you don’t like is that he stands up for what he believes rather than just what the party wants him to do. He does what he thinks is right rather than what he thinks will keep him in office. That’s pretty much it, right?

Sounds right to me from all I have read. We need to get rid of those people who vote their conscience.

Voting for people who “vote their conscience”. Well Governor Haley has no conscience. We really need to send her packing!

“rather than just what the party wants him to do.”

Actually that should read “rather than what the teanuts want him to do.”

What we don’t like is that he consistently subverts instead of upholds the Constitution. But that doesn’t matter to you- you never read it, and you probably never will.

Follow the links FITS conveniently provides in their articles and you’ll get specific items that we take issue with.

Of course I’ve read the Constitution, I read it once every couple of months. I know more about it than your mom knows about the pimples on your dick.

Senator Graham does not believe that Congress should check executive power, he does not believe the government is limited only to enumerated powers specified in Art. I Sect. 8, he does doesn’t think military action requires a declaration of war, and he does not respect most (if any) of the Bill of rights, specifically the 1st, 4th, and 8th.

Sorry about the dick pimple comment, that was a crude remark. But it was funny

By my count 262 make that 263 people have voted to censure Senator Graham in all 8 counties combined. Wait until the primary and see how many vote to reelect an outstanding public servant and statesman.

Think he’ll get 50% + 1 against all those challengers?

Did they pass the censure so that they could find out what’s in it?

The only difference between Lindsay & Barney Frank is, Barney is out of the closet. Evidenced by how far Graham has his nose up McCain’s rear-end.

this actually helps Graham by demonstrating that he must be somewhat moderate/centrist if he is being condemned by the extreme of his own party. not that it matters much, there is zero chance of graham losing primary or election, but it does help moderates feel less awful about sending this dick to DC. even if that is the point of the conspiracy.
