CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Charleston County Republicans have again voted to censure U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for being too liberal.

He will think it's an award.
He will probably invite Juan McCain over to attend the award dinner.
Graham please retire....you need a vacation permanently.
They don’t know how. They all think this job is permanent.
Why don’t they just kick him out of the party and pull
his funding? Obviously he is a lying democrat.
The vote to censure was 39 to 32, yet in 2010 it was unanimous? What changed?
Shocking to see 32 vote against it, but I'm guessing the previous censure vote was just of the Executive Committee ...
The executive committee of the Charleston County Republican Party voted unanimously on Monday to rebuke Mr. Graham for many of the positions he has taken that do not represent the wishes of the people of South Carolina, such as: passing a cap and trade energy bill, bailing out banks and granting amnesty for illegal aliens.

1.Voted to Confirm Obamas appointment to Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection: In July of 2013, Senator Graham voted with the Democrats to confirm Richard Cordray, a noted leftist promoter of aggressive economic regulation, as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, while Senator Scott voted in opposition.
2.Supported arming Al Qaeda / Muslim Brotherhood Revolutionaries in Syria: In June of 2013, Senator Graham called for supplying American arms to known affiliates of Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria and assistance in the form of a no-fly zone and bombing of Syrian airfields.
3.Supported amnesty but not border control: In June of 2013, on the issue of an immigration bill that provides effective amnesty to illegal aliens without taking action to close the border first, Senator Graham joined the Democrats in invoking cloture and supporting the bill while Senator Scott voted in opposition...
