Dozens of people have been protesting the Charleston-area Senate offices of GOP U.S. Sens. Tim Scott and Lindsey Graham over cabinet nominations and various proposals by President Donald Trump. The respectful protests by members of MoveOn.org and Indivisible Charleston were to continue today from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Charleston Coliseum to put “pressure on our elected officials to create a public and transparent investigation into President Trump’s Administration’s ties with the Russian government, coinciding with the President’s meeting with Boeing in North Charleston.” As many as 500 people are expected to attend today.
These photos were taken Feb. 7 at Graham’s Mount Pleasant office. The man in the bottom photo was identified by Indivisible Charleston as area resident Chris Engler, who explained how the Affordable Care Act helped make him healthy.
