Skip to comments.Enviro Groups Circulate Memo to Attack Former GOP Climate Ally (MCLAME'S LAP DOG ALERT)

After nearly a year of treating Sen. Lindsey Graham as perhaps their closest ally on the Republican side of the aisle, environmental groups are ready to turn their fire on the South Carolina lawmaker.
A three-page memo (pdf) acquired by E&E Daily that has been circulating around the environmental community indicates that advocacy groups are poised to launch an aggressive campaign against their one-time ally that will paint him as a "flip-flopper" on climate and energy policy.
"We've watched as Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has gone from being a supporter of comprehensive climate and energy plan to vocal critic," states the memo. "Now Graham is working overtime with his Republican colleagues to kill any meaningful legislation.
"We are tired of Graham saying one thing and doing another," the memo adds. "It is imperative we hold his feet to the fire and showcase his many flip-flops to the media, Beltway pundits, congressional staffers, and our key allies working to pass a bill."
The memo outlines nine bullet-pointed "core messages" and several examples of Graham's contradictory statements on carbon pricing, offshore drilling, an "energy only" bill and immigration, among other issues.
"We encourage you to actively use and promote these points to go on the offensive and damage his credibility," the memo states.

RINO Graham alert!
So the LEFT think Grahamnesty is a weasel and hypocrite? Well how the Hell do you think WE feel??!!!
Gee, Lindseys circle of friends is getting even smaller. Looks like all he can count on are the RINOs.
Would that he could join them all in private life. And a good time would be had by all.
Poor Lindsey. These things sometimes happen to people who have no integrity or principles.
Did they take responsibility for the Gulf disaster?
Why else would BP be far offshore trying to find oil a mile below the surface?
Libtards always eat their own...

Great post. Looks like Sen. Graham Cracker is going to get reamed from both sides. That’s what happens when you have no moral compass or scruples.
You can’t keep stabbing your supposed friends in the back and not expect an Ides of March someday.
