Sen Lindsey Graham

Should the government shut down, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) has announced he will refund his salary to the Federal Treasury.

Additionally, according to a release: “Senator Graham’s offices in Columbia, Florence, Greenville, Mount Pleasant, Pendleton, Rock Hill, and Washington will be closed during the shutdown.

“Our brave men and women serving in uniform will not get paid during the shutdown,” said Graham. “I believe Members of Congress should think twice about putting their way of life before those who fight to protect it.”
