South Carolina Greenville GOP rebukes Graham for Obama support and more

August 4, 2010 12:17

The Greenville County Republican executive committee voted 61-2 to approve a resolution of rebuke against Sen. Lindsey Graham at its Monday night, Aug. 2, meeting.
The resolution reads:

Whereas, United States Sen. Lindsey Graham has cast votes in the United States Senate in favor of TARP, which all but guarantees an increase in the national debt and expansion of the federal government.

Whereas, Sen. Graham has voted in favor of two of President Obama’s nominees to the United States Supreme Court, who possess questionable qualifications and very liberal beliefs that are contrary to the United States Constitution.

Whereas, Sen. Graham has promoted amnesty for illegal aliens, and continues to promote this premise under the guise of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.”
Whereas, by these and other votes, Sen. Graham has abandoned the Republican platform:

Limited Government; Capitalism and the Free Market System; Original Intent of the Constitution; The Appointment of Conservative Federal Judges and Justices to the United States Supreme Court; and Fiscal Responsibility.

And, whereas, both locally and nationally, Sen. Graham has repeatedly demonstrated contempt and arrogance towards those members of the Republican Party who support these core Republican beliefs;

Therefore, be it resolved, the Greenville County Republican Party hereby issues this formal rebuke of Sen. Graham for his cooperation and support of President Obama and the Democratic Party’s liberal agenda for the United State.

Further, be it resolved that Sen. Graham will no longer be invited to attend and participate in meetings or other events sponsored by the Greenville County Republican Party.

Resolved this 2nd day of August 2010 at the regularly scheduled meeting of the Greenville County Republican Party Executive Committee.
