Senator Lindsey Graham is asking for federal aid to help his state even though he voted against the Hurricane Sandy relief package in 2013.

In a move that tri-state residents may find ironic, Senator Lindsey Graham is asking for federal aid to help South Carolina in the aftermath of massive weekend flooding in his state that dumped up to 24″ of rain and killed at least 11 people.

“Let’s just get through this thing, and whatever it costs, it costs,” Graham told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Monday.

When questioned, Graham could not recall that he voted against similar funding for states requesting federal aid after Superstorm Sandy ravaged the northeast from October 22-31, 2012.
