Lindsey Graham Wants Federal Aid for South Carolina – Voted Against Aid for New Jersey

Natural disasters don’t care who you are or where you live. And when they happen, we should all come together and help each other.

But back in 2013 when hurricane Sandy crippled the east coast, South Carolina Senator and current Republican presidential candidate, Lindsey Graham, voted to deny federal help for those in need.

My oh my how times have changed. In an interview on CNN, Graham was asked about his apparent hypocrisy and why federal help is necessary for South Carolina and not New Jersey.

He had no answer but knew 100 percent that his state needed all the federal help they can get no matter the cost.

“Let’s just get through this thing, and whatever it costs, it costs,” Graham told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room.

Then the amnesia set in when he was asked about his vote to not help the people of New Jersey.

“I’m all for helping the people in New Jersey. I don’t really remember me voting that way,” Graham said.

Pressed further, he said: “Anyway, I don’t really recall that, but I’d be glad to look and tell you why I did vote no, if I did.”
