Alvin Greene Update #2…..June 11….

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is punting on the Alvin Greene issue back to the State’s senior politician  Rep.  Clyborn…..

Who isn’t happy and making a lot of noise….

After they find out if he’ll legit and where the money for filling came from….

We’ll see if ANYONE is going to help the guy out…

Or if he gets thrown under the Bus…..

Thus assuring Jim DeMint no opposition….

Will Greene do ANY fundraising and campaigning?

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is taking a hands-off approach to the South Carolina Senate race, even as Democrats in the state fret that an unemployed veteran with a pending criminal charge emerged as the surprise winner of their party’s primary this week.

Alvin Greene, who spent little money on his campaign aside from the filing fee, came out of nowhere to defeat former Judge Vic Rawl for the right to take on Republican Sen. Jim DeMint. It’s since been reported that Greene was charged with showing obscene photos to a college student and Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn even speculated on a radio show that Greene could be a “Republican plant.”

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, who chairs the DSCC, said his committee isn’t focused on the race in South Carolina and declined to say whether the DSCC would join South Carolina Democrats in asking Greene to step aside.

“The DSCC is not engaged there. We’re just engaged in other parts of the country,” he told reporters at a press conference. “I will allow the South Carolina Democratic Party, Congressman Clyburn, who I served with and know can be tenacious, to continue to pursue that and we will look at it accordingly.”


On another front….Defeated  South Carolina US Senate candidate Vic Rawl is pledging to review the vote count for Greene in the state…..

Here’s Greene talking to MSNBC…….
