From today’s Savannah Morning News:
An Imperial Sugar Co. executive’s lawyer says the company put U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss up to harassing his client at a subcommittee hearing.
Near the end of the Tuesday session in Washington, the Georgia Republican lit into Graham H. Graham, Imperial’s vice president of operations.
“I believe Chambliss was espousing the company line in an effort to discredit and blunt Mr. Graham’s testimony,” the attorney, Philip Hilder, said Wednesday.
Chambliss denied that, saying he spoke on behalf of the families of the 13 people killed as a result of the Feb. 7 explosions and fire at the Port Wentworth refinery.
