Tom Graves says bank broke promise

U.S. Rep. Tom Graves filed an affidavit Thursday reiterating that he was wronged by the bank that is suing him and a state lawmaker over a failed hotel in Gordon County. In nearly identical six-page documents, Graves, R-Ga., and state Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock, claimed Bartow County Bank changed the terms of the loan the two used to open Tich Hospitality and the Oglethorpe Inn in Calhoun. The documents say the bank then declared the company and the lawmakers in default. Other recently filed court documents indicate Graves and Rogers used money the Georgia Department of ...

Bob Barr contemplating a run against Tom Graves

From the GOP grapevine: Former Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr has told friends that he’s contemplating an attempted return to Congress – and a return to the Republican fold. Barr, a longtime resident of Cobb County, would challenge U.S. Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger – a tea party favorite. In August, the Legislature redrew Graves’ district to include heavily populated Floyd and Paulding counties – which now make up 38 percent of the electorate. Barr has told acquaintances that he would move to Paulding. We put a call into his office this morning, ...

Rep. Tom Graves' attorney: Bank was at fault

U.S. Rep. Tom Graves' attorney says the disputed loan agreement between his client and a Northwest Georgia bank is not valid because the bank should have known the Georgia congressman couldn't repay the money and it cut the lawmaker some slack when his company couldn't make payments. In court documents, attorney Simon Bloom contends Bartow County Bank never should have issued Graves and his business partner a loan, citing statements in a deposition in which a bank official admitted knowing the partners did not have the money to guarantee the loan. Graves and state Senate Majority Leader Chip ...

Rep. Tom Graves Supports Georgia’s Waterways, Savannah Harbor Expansion Project
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today issued the following statement after voting in favor of the Water Resources Development Act (H.R. 5303), bipartisan legislation that authorizes federal partnerships for developing and maintaining the nation’s waterway infrastructure, such as the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project: “The nation’s waterways serve as economic engines for growth and job creation,” said Rep. Graves. “That’s no different in Georgia, where the Port of Savannah contributes $174 million in annual net benefits to the U.S. and supports 21,000 American businesses. Importantly, this bill ensures the Port of Savannah continues to thrive by authorizing the resources necessary to keep the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project on schedule – a top economic priority for Georgia. The expansion project deepens the harbor so it can accommodate the larger cargo ships of the future.” The Savannah Harbor Expansion Project deepens the Savannah Harbor federal shipping channel fro
Congress Overrides President’s Veto, Helps 9/11 Victims Seek Justice
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) and the House of Representatives today voted to override the president’s veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (S. 2040), bipartisan legislation allowing victims of terrorist attacks, including family members who lost loved ones, to sue foreign governments found complicit in terrorist attacks. “I’m proud that Congress came together to help victims of terrorist attacks by overriding the president’s veto of this important legislation,” said Rep. Graves. “While we can’t bring back the family members who perished on 9/11 and in other attacks, their families deserve the opportunity to seek justice in court. Congress and the American people support their fight for justice.” The Senate voted to override the president’s veto earlier today, meaning S. 2040 is now law. ###
Rep. Tom Graves Statement on Court’s CFPB Decision
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today issued the following statement after a three judge panel at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals – just below the Supreme Court – ruled that the leadership structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is unconstitutional: “Today’s decision is a win for consumers and for our constitutional system of checks and balances. As many in Congress, Republicans and Democrats, have been saying for years, every agency deserves congressional scrutiny to protect the public from overzealous actions, including the CFPB.  At a minimum, the CFPB should be led by a multi-member, bipartisan board – not a single, unaccountable director who faces removal only for misconduct. I hope this court decision will spur others to join me in passing reforms that enable stronger congressional oversight of the CFPB as we use the power of the purse. Checks and balances are crucial to our system of government, and the CFPB is no exception.” Rep. Graves h
Rep. Tom Graves Receives Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence
The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) announced this week that Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) is a recipient of the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence for the 114th Congress. NAM gives the award at the end of each Congress to legislators who have earned a 70 percent or higher rating on key manufacturing votes. “Manufacturers in Georgia and throughout the United States are leading an innovation revolution, creating jobs, making more products and making them better than ever before,” said NAM Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse. “However, manufacturers are often disproportionately and adversely impacted by decisions made by policy and lawmakers. The NAM is proud to stand with lawmakers like Rep. Graves who understand what is at stake and seek to implement policies that will energize the manufacturing economy.” “Manufacturing is an important part of our economy in Northwest Georgia,” said Rep. Graves. “I’m prou
