Lindsey Graham Dangled Stimulus to Buy Votes

Winning is all that matters

Many writers have called out Lindsey Graham‘s post-McCain descent into the gutter, but it turns out he can go even lower. As Americans struggle to stay above water and small business owners lose their livelihoods, Graham is dangling stimulus money like pet treats to buy the Georgia Senate seats. Via The Hill:

In a surprise development, though, Graham does not necessarily agree with Trump on stimulus checks. He says that he will support the president’s hope for a larger check, but only if David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler win their senate runoff races.

Update: As I write this, Graham has voiced support for a stand-alone vote to raise stimulus to $2000.00, wonder how he’s being rewarded for that.

You Got Your Wish Senator Graham

If you recall, Lindsey Graham is known for the statement:

“The demographics race we’re losing badly. We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

Graham chalked Trump’s lead up to a “dark side of politics that Mr. Trump is appealing to.” He said Trump is channeling the same Republican primary voters who believe President Barack Obama is a Muslim and was born in Kenya.

“He is shallow, he is ill-prepared to be commander-in-chief, he doesn’t know what he is talking about in terms of how our laws work, he says the worst things possible about immigrants and women, and he’s a complete idiot when it comes to Mideast policy…

Luckily he specified he was was talking about Donald Trump, because the above description could fit any one of the GOP’s 2016 candidates. Graham added:

“So I think over time, common sense will prevail.”

Does he really. For the past 7 years, Lindsey Graham and his party have said and done nothing to inform their voters or improve their lives. They have stoked the GOP fires of racism, bigotry, and misogyny, while governing through blatant dishonesty. They’ve been happy to let their voters’ uneducated anger fester and grow.

It is Conservatives who have driven the wedge deeper and deeper into this country; now it has blown up in their face with Donald Trump’s candidacy. They have no message, they have no plan, and now they’ve lost any shred of legitimacy.

This is the party you asked for, Senator Graham:
