Skip to comments.Ravenel: What Deals Will Graham Cut To Stay In Power?
Posted on 04/14/2014 9:04:54 AM PDT by cotton1706
I believe Senators should represent the people who elected them. They should put your needs first as opposed to the needs of government bureaucrats, lobbyists or Washington, D.C. special interests.
Unfortunately, South Carolinians have gotten the short end of that stick when it comes to Senator Lindsey Graham.
Last year the Center for Public Integrity reported that Graham ranked second in the entire U.S. Congress when it came to receiving political contributions bundled by lobbyists. And last month we learned how willing Graham is to trade political favors for campaign cash when he introduced an online gaming ban for Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson.
In addition to Grahams $8 million campaign war chest, special interests are going to pump millions more into his reelection bid through shady attack groups including a big chunk of money aimed at targeting my independent candidacy. Grahams special interest wannabes are already attacking me through earned media auditioning for their roles in his general election hit squad.
Heres what I want to know from Lindsey Graham: What kind of deals is he having to make to finance this attack machine? How many more billions of dollars from tapped out taxpayers will be wasted on crony capitalist handouts? And how many more of our sons and daughters will be put in harms way in needless wars?
And heres my question to South Carolina taxpayers: Is this sacrifice of blood and treasure worth it? All so a politician can continue to rake in the money he needs to play pretend conservative on television and attack credible independent challengers like me?

Its good for voters to have some sort of option other than Graham in the fall if it comes to that.
I read the name of Sheldon Adelson again. He looks like a very bad guy who does the GOPe bidding and buys politicians.
95 PERECENT OF ELECTED REPUBLICAN OFFICIALS EITHER FAKE CONSERVATISM OR REPUDIATE IT.
And guys like Mr. Adelson stand in the way of that situation changing.
He's like CT's Gov. Rowland....the bad penny that keeps showing up after prison time.
*Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.*
Drunken, drugged up lecherous fool. If he thinks that folks will vote for him for anything he truly is delusional
The ends justifies the means to the GOP. I can imagine McCain and Graham saying “We have to win because these hayseeds have no idea what’s good for them.”
