Greenville GOP censures Lindsey Graham again


The Greenville County GOP voted to censure Senator Lindsey Graham again. This resolution called for replacing him in office with someone else.

Here’s what FITSnews said about the resolution:

What makes this censure different?  It was issued less than a month after three Tea Party leaders publicly disassociated themselves with the Greenville GOP – a move which should have shifted the ideological orientation of the organization to the left.

Apparently even the new “centrist” party is still livid with the left-leaning Graham, though. According to the group’s latest resolution, Graham has engaged “repeatedly in a course of conduct that violates fundamental principles of the South Carolina Republican Platform, even after such actions have been publicly called to his attention.”

The censure goes on to say Graham has “committed a long series of actions” that are “fundamentally inconsistent with the principles of the South Carolina Republican Party” – and concludes Graham “should be replaced as Senator for the State of South Carolina at the earliest possible electoral opportunity.”

Here’s the resolution itself, which goes into a lot of detail on the “course of conduct” they censured Graham for:

  1. “I haven’t endorsed Lindsay. Last year, I voiced an ad thanking him for support of Israel. It was not an endorsement for reelection. I don’t plan to endorse anyone in SC Senate race in the primary. Will certainly help in the general. Obviously, LIndsay’s people are using the TY ad and treating it like an endorsement, but neither the PAC nor I personally have endorsed in SC.” — Mike Huckabee
