AIKEN -- The Aiken County Republican Party has approved a formal censure of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
The party's executive committee took the action Thursday, joining a handful of other county parties, including Greenville's GOP.
Committee member Pete Seaha, who also is the Aiken County Tea Party chairman, wrote the resolution and introduced it at the meeting. The resolution states in part that Graham won't be invited to any party meetings or events.
"I don't believe the senator is sticking to conservative Republican principles," said Seaha. "In my mind, the senator has disrespected his constituents. He has said publicly on a talk show that he didn't care what they thought."
Seaha said it was his understanding that 18 people on the executive committee supported the resolution, while two opposed it and two abstained.

shame Graham was not up for re-election this year and not in 2008, we’d have tea-partied his ass into oblivion.
Whoever it was that sat in for Mike Church on Friday was the guy who interviewed Goober. He mentioned the interview and I beleive he ran some of the audio clips.
Does anyone know or remember who this guest host is?
His vote for Kagan sealed the deal as far as I’m concerned.
Pelosi is Speaker until January when the new Congress is seated. There will be a vote and if Dems are the minority she loses and most likely Rs will chose Boener.
His relentless push for amnesty did it for me.
I’m sorry but your friend is an idiot or worse. The Speaker is elected by the members of the current Congress. Come January, the 112th Congress will commence with one of the first actions to elect the Speaker of the House. Alternatively the same will commence for the Senate Majority Leader.
If the Republicans gain control of the majority in the House, which is highly prognosticated, what Republican in their right mind would vote for Nanzi Pelousy?
some very solid folks in SC...
I hope they will rally the entire state to throw that jackass out of office.
Does SC law have a recall provision?? They could dump this leftist curse that way.
Let's hope they don't!
I debate this guy all the time and work him into a corner from which there is no escape and he ends the debate with: That may be, but I don't believe it. Then, he walks away. Frustrating...
Then open the rules of the Congress and place it on his desk. I always try to go into a battle of whits with undeniable facts. They still go away frustrated but that plants the seed of doubt to their view that will eventually grow. But then again, one has to turn on the switch for the light to glow.
Michele Bachmann would be a good choice, no?
Uber RINO Lindsey Ping
"Republican by day, Democrat by night."
Want on or off this ping list?
Just FReepmail me.
As a resident of Aiken County, THANKS!
That’s very unfair. Linda herself has stated, “I ain’t gay.” Do you think she would deliberately lie?
It’s no act.
Clearly part of the intellectually impenetrable, dimwitted permanent RAT constituency!
Your Republican neighbors in Georgia have wondered for several years why you keep electing this RINO to the US Senate???
If that be the case I look for ole Nancy to retire.
I don’t see her going back to being just one of a many regular ole congress thieves.
Can I ask what good these little smack downs do? This jerk is going to do what he wants. He’s not ever going to run again and lose to any and everyone.
Why doen’t the good folks of the beautiful state of South Carolina impeach his sorry rino ass?
*Michele Bachmann would be a good choice, no?*
Of course, it should be her. She is the leader now anyway. The rest of them, with a few exceptions, are gutless eunics.
Instead of just sencuring the fag, recall him.
There must be a mechanism for removing an elected official who goes nuts.
Lindsey has publicly stated he pays little attention to the desires of his constituents. Thia is one way for us to fight back. If he won't pay attention to us, we won't publicly pay attention to him.
Hes not ever going to run again...
Oh yeah he will. The man's(?) ego is boundless. He's a typical smart-ass RINO. He will run again. And be defeated in the primary. We're watching and recording. He won't stand a chance.
Why doent the good folks of the beautiful state of South Carolina impeach his sorry rino ass?
First, thanks for the kind words. I've been here since 2003 and absolutely love everything about SC, even the hot summers.
As to your statement, I don't know if that's possible, I suspect it is not. If it were possible I'm sure somebody would have tried it by now. South Carolinians are NOT HAPPY with Grahamensty.
Actually I think, the speaker is chosen by a majority vote. Usually the party with the most members. Sometimes deals are made, I suspect.
How ya doing my old friend? Stillf ighting the good fight I see! Im coming home in a few weeks. Second home here in Medellin.
“shame Graham was not up for re-election this year and not in 2008, wed have tea-partied his ass into oblivion.”
(I don’t think I’ve ever seen Tea Party used as a verb before, btw- but I like it)
Never argue with an idiot, spectators can’t tell the difference. Now if I could just remember that when it counts.
“First, thanks for the kind words. I’ve been here since 2003 and absolutely love everything about SC, even the hot summers.”
I’ve been here since the day I was born 66 years ago and I absolutely HATE the summers! This past few weeks I have been looking at real estate ads in the WV mountains. I honestly don’t know how I survived to adulthood working in the fields all summer every summer. I LITERALLY grew up walking all day long behind a mule in scorching sun every blazing SC summer. Frankly I wonder about the mental condition of anyone who likes South Carolina summers ;>) The other three seasons are fantastic though, I love cooking out in December, not July. We have just enough cold weather to make me appreciate those sixty degree days even more.
I assume you’ll be home in time for the November fireworks?
Well, I’m pretty sure she remains Speaker for the Death to America Lame Duck session.
Wouldn’t it be great if it really was a lame duck session and they didn’t do anything at all. I think we’d be ahead of the game if that were the case.
It is impossible to impeach a member of the legislative branch.
There is no legal mechanism.
A sitting legislative member can be defeated for re-election. He can resign his seat. He can be expelled from the body he sits in by the body itself. Those are the only three ways.
Impeachment is reserved for certain members of the executive and judicial branch. Bill Clinton was impeached (just not removed from office). Judge Alcee Hastings from Fl was impeached and removed from the federal bench (but got himself elected to Congress and serves there now).
There’s a reason why examples of impeached officials NEVER INCLUDES EXAMPLES OF LEGISLATIVE MEMBERS. YOU CANNOT NAME ONE. THERE AREN’T ANY.
Simply because it cannot be done.
I live in a gerrymandered distrist where Alcee is my congress thief.Well aware of his situation.
I just was not aware there is no mechanism for the people to do it.
Thanks, for the info.
