Imagine This: Your family home need immediate repairs but you prefer to build a palace for your mistress ....

because of those personal "special" favors she does for you.  What kind of a person does that make you?  A1 Scumbag!
US Senator Lindsey Graham is that kind of a scumbag and so also are the voters who keep him in the Senate.
The special "favors" the despicable Graham will get, will of course be, the kind that the Panama Papers are all about.

Congress ponders 'Marshall Plan' for Egypt

"One thing I will talk to [Democratic counterpart Patrick] Leahy [D-Vt.] about is an emergency appropriation that will help Egypt, Jordan and probably Lebanon to deal with the stresses they're facing," Graham told reporters.

Graham made the remarks following a congressional delegation he led to Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel, during which he and several other lawmakers met with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and other national leaders. Separately, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., also met with Sisi on April 7.

Graham did not offer specifics about his proposed emergency appropriation, which would go beyond the $1.3 billion in military aid and $150 million in economic assistance that the State Department has requested for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. Several senators who went on the trip with him also argued for beefed up support for Cairo.....
