It’s about time.
Dozens of protesters picketed outside of Lindsey Graham’s Florence office over his immigration vote last week. Graham is one of the members of the “Gang of 8” who drafted the bill.
The protesters chanted, “Hey,hey, ho, ho… Lindsey Graham has got to go!”
The Huffington Post reported:
Protesters gathered outside of Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) state offices Monday to protest his vote in favor of immigration reform. The tea party protest, sponsored by Freedom Works, a conservative non-profit founded by David Koch, was held to express unhappiness with Graham’s support for the Senate’s immigration bill — though Graham is a member of the so-called gang of eight that drafted it.
“We’re tired of him being so wishy washy and him sitting on the fence,” Charlotte Hendrix, a member of the Florence Tea Party Patriots, told Carolina Live about the protests. “He’ll do one thing that’s good and do about four or five that’s displeasing to us. We want a real conservative to represent us.”
The protesters in Florence, S.C. called for Graham’s removal from office. Graham did not respond to the protesters in person, but sent a statement to WPDE NewsChannel 15.
