Ethics Hero and Ethics Quote of the Week: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was the only Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote for the confirmation of Elena Kagan as Supreme Court Justice. I can’t improve on what Jack Marshall (who I believe to be a Republican) headlined and wrote in his EthicsAlarms.com blog. Anybody who hopes the American government can work again should read it.

“Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) delivered the following remarks as the Senate Judiciary Committee voted in favor of President Obama’s nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. Obviously Ethics Alarms approves of Graham’s vote and reasoning, as it is consistent with what I believe is the most ethical, fair and responsible course for all Republican senators. His statement, however, is extraordinary in its appeal to the best instincts of ethical public servants, and rather than just a link (the text comes from The Hill), I think proper respect and admiration dictate a full presentation. It embodies fairness, civility, professionalism. respect and dignity, as well as the ideals of collaborative government.”

Here is the entire Marshall posting.

    …too bad he is also for changing the 14th amendment regarding citizenship. he was my hero too…a for a couple days before the his opposition on birthright citizen came along. oddly, mike huckabee is pro-birthright citizenship: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20013462-503544.html

    Well, he’s still my hero for being dedicated to governing. I don’t agree with him on birthright citizenship, or on a lot of things, but he’s working to do what he was elected to do–to execute his job in the interests of the USA.
