Senator Lindsey Graham Retreats On Immigration Amnesty Effort Following Tea Party Pressure
US Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is now retreating from the negotiating table with top Democrats on energy and immigration reform amnesty legislation following immense pressure from recent Tea Party events where he and his ally John McCain were booed by large crowds in at least three cities and controversy erupted over his sexual orientation.
While Graham claims that his retreat is the result of concerns over legislation scheduling, Graham’s status as the only Republican elected official in Washington who is willing to publicly support a path to citizenship and voting rights for illegal aliens, and the resulting pressures are the most likely culprit.
“Graham is looking for a way out now,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “The recent Tea Party events showed that Graham and McCain are on the wrong side of the aisle on immigration issues despite some last minute campaign season conversions to appear tough on border security.”
William Gheen led loud chants of “Secure Our Borders” with thousands of Tea Party attendees in Houston, TX (April 15), Murfreesboro, TN (April 16), and Greenville, SC (April 17).
Massive media attention and controversy erupted over a segment of Gheen’s speech in Graham’s home state of South Carolina. The controversial speech highlighted the fact that over 50 Tea Party events had signed up to be Tea Party Against Amnesty events detailed at AgainstAmnesty.com
William Gheen announced that he believed Lindsey Graham is a homosexual due to numerous claims by political insiders in SC and DC and that Graham’s secret could be used to manipulate his votes, since America has a long history or such secrets being used against movers and shakers.
The following Monday after McCain and Graham faced pressure at many Tea Party events, McCain announced a new “Border Security” plan, devised to detract attention away from his earlier support for legalization and voting rights for illegal aliens.
One week after Graham faced massive media attention and controversy tied to the Tea Party event in Greenville, he is now backing away from the Democrats on energy and immigration.
“I firmly stand by my request for Senator Graham to be completely honest with his constituents about his lifestyle,” said William Gheen in response to attacks from several liberal bloggers and Jon Stewart and Steve Colbert of Comedy Central.
“I’m a free American who is going to say what I feel needs to be said unabashedly. I am glad to see Senator Graham walking away from the Amnesty negotiating table. Verbal insults mean nothing to me compared to the billions of dollars and thousands of lives lost each year due to Obama, McCain, and Graham’s open borders and illegal immigration.”
