Senator Lindsey Graham supports Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, but one group on the coast is protesting Graham, asking to denounce the senator. A noose hanging a dummy with a picture of Senator Lindsey Graham’s face on it symbolizes the opposition one group has against Graham’s decision to support Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. About 10 members of Operation Rescue-Insurrecta Nex protested on a street in Mt. Pleasant, near Charleston, for the “Beating, Burning and Hanging Lindsey ‘Benedict Arnold’ Graham in Effigy” protest.
The Post and Courier reports the group’s director told the paper: “Lindsey Graham claims he’s a Christian, but he’s a traitor.” Graham would not comment on the protest, but did said he may not support Kagan’s legal or judiciary philosophies, but he does think she is qualified for the Supreme Court. Graham says Kagan does have a grasp of the difference between a judge and a politician.
