Cullman Republicans Remove James Graves After Sexual Abuse Charge

The Committee moved today to ensure that we protect strong, conservative principles.

In a press release, Chairman Waid Harbison stated the following:

“We are saddened to have to take action to remove James Graves from the Cullman County Republican Party Executive Committee. James has been a strong community leader in the past, and we are all surprised at the recent developments; however, his actions do not reflect the morals or beliefs of the Republican party on a local or national level.

The Committee moved today to ensure that we protect strong, conservative principles, and to do what was right for the local party. We will always stand up and advocate for what is right, even if it means standing up to someone within our own party.”

For more information on these developments, please contact Cullman County Republican Party Chairman Waid Harbison at 256-708-1650.
