Lobbying and super PACs are getting to far out of control when a defense contractor can give $500,000 to a Senator of the US of A., this is no different than paying a bribe to a government official:


Graham’s Super PAC, called “Security is Strength,” received $500,000 from billionaire Ron Perelman, whose company MacAndrews & Forbes owns AM General, the manufacturer of Humvees and other products for the military. In December of last year, AM General won a $245.6 million contract with the Army.



“If I were a defense contractor, I’d be big time for Lindsey Graham, because I’ve been forward-leaning on rebuilding our military,” Graham told USA Today when asked about why defense contractors have been tapped to help lead his fundraising team. “People come to you because of your positions,” Graham added.

Well, that 'splains a lot, Lucy.

I think he's about done. Do the people who contributed to his PAC get their money back? Bet they're kicking themselves. They bet on a loser.

Just business as usual in America, the government rape the tax payer the corporations rape the tax payer and then they get to pay politirats with the sweat of the working class and their labor.

His WH campaign was a sham, it was an excuse for his lobbyists to stuff his campaign coffers and keep him in office as an 'elected' senator sitting on all those committees ensuring the money train never stops. Graham is one of the worst shills in Congress.
