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 Give Troops Pay Raise, Strengthen Georgia Military Installations
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today voted for and the House passed the fiscal year 2017 Defense Appropriations bill (H.R. 1301), which funds the Department of Defense and includes a 2.1 percent pay raise for the troops. “Our troops and their families have endured more than a decade and a half of war, including ongoing efforts to defeat the Islamic State,” said Rep. Graves. “Simply put, they deserve a pay raise. I hope it helps provide financial security for the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.” H.R. 1301 also includes Rep. Graves’ provision to speed the replacement of a critical radar system and aircraft, known as the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS). The technology, which is stationed at Robins Air Force Base, significantly enhances the ability of our warplanes and other military assets to target enemy combatants and help protect our soldiers on the ground by detecting threats and allowing for better coordinated, more effecti
Rep. Graves Votes to Restore States’ Right to Defund Planned Parenthood
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today voted for and the House passed H.J. Res. 43, legislation to repeal the Obama administration’s rule that prevented states from withholding funding from abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. “Georgia should never be forced by the federal government to provide funds to abortion providers,” said Rep. Graves. “By reversing this Obama administration rule, we’re restoring the right of Georgia to provide tax dollars only to healthcare centers that do not perform abortions, which preserves women’s access to healthcare while saving the lives of the innocent unborn.” ###
Rep. Tom Graves Proposes Cyber Self Defense Bill
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today proposed the Active Cyber Defense Certainty Act (ACDC). The bill makes changes to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) to allow the use of limited defensive measures that exceed the boundaries of one’s network in an attempt to identify and stop attackers. Once a cybercriminal is identified, the victim can share that information with law enforcement or try to disrupt an ongoing attack. The enhanced flexibility will allow individuals and the private sector to develop and use tools that are currently restricted under the CFAA to protect their own network. Additionally, by allowing defenders to develop and deploy new tools, it will also serve as a disincentive for criminal hacking. “This bill is about empowering individuals to defend themselves online, just as they have the legal authority to do during a physical assault,” said Rep. Graves.  “While the bill doesn’t solve every problem, it’s an important first step. I hope my bill he
Graves Statement on Confirmation of Mick Mulvaney as OMB Director
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC-05) was confirmed by the Senate as director of the Office of Management and Budget: “If there’s one thing I know about Mick Mulvaney after more than six years serving together in the House, it’s that he’s a rock solid fiscal conservative. I know he will help President Trump write conservative budgets that prioritize the essential functions of the federal government, cut waste and restore fiscal sanity. I’m also confident he will work with the Appropriations Committees in Congress to return to the regular government funding process, which maximizes oversight and accountability. As a member of the House Appropriations Committee and chairman of the Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government, I look forward to working with Rep. Mulvaney in his new position.”   ###
