"No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money." - Matthew 6:24

Early patriots pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to form America.  I am  alarmed and appalled by the cruel spectacle of Washington politics today.  I have been a teacher for 42 years.  For me, silence is betrayal.  In my congressional campaign, I will not accept any corporate or banking donations--because no one can serve two masters.  

Who am I?

I am Mal Hyman. I am a progressive Democrat and I live in South Carolina.

I have taught in the public schools and for five years in a medium security men’s prison.  For the last 30 years I have taught sociology at Coker College. I have traveled to 8 countries to work for human rights and have monitored 2 elections with the UN. My community service includes:  the board of the local homeless shelter, the Disabilities Board, Christmas in April (low-income housing), organization of numerous panel discussions at Coker College, and started the Hartsville Earth Day festival.  My book, “Covering and Covering-Up High Treason: Media Coverage of the Assassination of President Kennedy” will be published in 2018.  I met my wife, Carole Holloway, an attorney for the Department of Social Services, at a panel discussion on homelessness, at Coker College in 1991

I believe Congress has a responsibility to invest in America to create more jobs, opportunity, and security. I believe in common sense for the common good, which means bringing liberty and justice for all.  When the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes, we can responsibly invest in infrastructure, early childhood education, make college affordable, and lead the world in sustainable energy.  I believe that healthcare is a human right, and that Medicare for All is good for business and necessary for dignity.  We need to strengthen social security, veterans' rights, to restructure the war on drugs as well as our criminal justice system..

I plan on only serving one master: The American People.

Our Goal: 2020 Americans Donating $20.20 to Defeat Lindsey Graham in 2020

It is Ashlyn. Today, the Republican congress led by Mitch McConnell will try to force a vote for Judge Kavanaugh. Lindsey Graham believes he can ignore the will of the people and push Kavanaugh through because he is putting the interests of his donors above the interests of his constituency. Lindsey Graham's behavior is pure tyranny, someone wielding power to ignore the will of the people. Graham thinks that he can be a tyrant because he believes that he can always outraise his opponents  thanks to his big billionaire donors. But, what Lindsey doesn’t understand is that when we all come together in solidarity, we can fight his campaign punch for punch.

The American people agree with us on most of the issues. Recent polls show that most Americans want:

  • Healthcare as a right

  • Jobs guarantee

  • College-debt relief

  • Living wage

  • Better collective bargaining

  • Cleaner environment

Imagine how terrified Lindsey Graham will be if we get over 2020 Americans donating to our campaign.

Help us build a bigger community. Our community isn’t going to be here just for election day. We want to be here for each other, whenever we need help. Right now, I’m asking you to share Senator Graham’s retirement fundraiser with your friends, your relatives, and on your social media accounts. Together, we can get him out of DC.
