Lindsey Graham Got Censured Again
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina, is losing his base in the State. County Republican committees are censuring him. Why? Because of principle. He pretends to be a Republican, but does not follow the Republican Platform. Be it right or wrong, Republicans, (or Democrats), should identify with the Party Platform. Else, why call themselves Republicans or Democrats? People in South Carolina are tired of the hypocrisy and deceit. – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

Last night, Pickens County GOP publicly rebuked Senator Lindsey Graham by passing a 30-point censure resolution. This makes Pickens County GOP the 7th Republican group that has passed similar resolutions so far in South Carolina.
The censure cites 30 examples of Graham violating the Republican Party platform.
The censure states: “Lindsey Graham has committed 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 censure resolution passed by 78%.
Pickens County GOP Chairman, Phillip Bowers told Benswann.com’s Joshua Cook, “I have yet to talk to a single person who believes that an elected office is a life time job … we need to change them out, like diapers, they need to be changed from time to time.”
“… I can tell from the mood that the people were glad that we were taking a stand for our platform. The local representatives in the state house and the federal officers just trample on our platform. If they don’t agree with our platform … they shouldn’t run on our Republican platform and habitually ignore it. Is it really ethical to run as a Republican in Pickens County, but then go to Columbia and consistently vote with Democrats? And you can look at their records. We have representatives at home that say they are Republicans, and go across the river down there and vote the other way.”
“We are going to have to start standing up and tell elected officials you’re either with us or you’re not – we need to clean it up,” he added.
