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 Votes to Prohibit Ransom Payments to Iran
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) last night voted for and the House passed the Prohibiting Future Ransom Payments to Iran Act (H.R. 5931). The bill reiterates that U.S. policy is not to pay ransoms and prohibits any cash payments to Iran until the president certifies Iran is not sponsoring terrorism. “This administration seems to have no boundaries in their willingness to bend over backwards for Iran,” said Rep. Graves. “Most recently, the administration broke long-standing U.S. policy and paid what amounts to a $1.7 billion ransom to Iran for several American hostages. While we’re all glad the hostages were safely returned, paying a ransom only emboldens our enemies to take Americans prisoner and provides Iran – the largest state sponsor of terrorism – nearly two billion dollars in cash. This legislation is now necessary to stop this administration’s dangerous efforts to appease Iran.”    ###
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
Rep. Tom Graves Introduces Bill to Help Fix Washington’s Broken Budget Process
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today introduced the Accurate Accounting Act, which would end some of the worst problems with the federal budget process and hold Washington accountable for a complete and accurate assessment of all federal spending. “Washington’s budget process is broken,” said Rep. Graves. “It’s only worked four times in the past 40 years. We can’t keep doing the same thing and expect a different result, which is why I introduced this bill. It creates a new, more honest framework in which Washington’s budgeting process would take place. The reforms would help control costs and give Americans a clear view of the country’s financial picture, much of which is hidden by the current budgeting process. While the bill doesn’t fix every problem, it’s an important first step. My hope is that these changes spur far greater reforms that balance the budget and solve our national debt crisis.” “Washington will never get spending under control unless we have
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. ###
