Alvin Greene Update for June 11…….

First of all…..

The $10,000 question……

Where did he get the money to file?

He IS unemployed right?

Second….

What’s the story with the criminal charges?

Oh, Yea….So far…..

Alvin Greene says he’s in……

State Democratic officials have urged Mr. Greene to quit the contest against Senator Jim DeMint, a Republican, and top lawmakers, including Representative James E. Clyburn, began suggesting on Thursday that Mr. Greene was a “plant.”

Mr. Clyburn, the House Democratic majority whip, called for a federal investigation because of reports that Mr. Greene, who told television reporters and others that he is unemployed, somehow paid the more than $10,000 filing fee to run for the Senate.

“There were some real shenanigans going on in the South Carolina primary,” Mr. Clyburn said on a radio show. “I don’t know if he was a Republican plant; he was someone’s plant.”

The Associated Press reported that Mr. Greene had been charged with a felony in a case involving showing pornographic images to a college student. Mr. Greene, 32, was largely silent about that as more and more news media tried to contact him. (In interviews on Thursday, he would not comment on the charge, saying he was innocent until proved guilty.) He said he would not step down.

Mr. Greene was asked in numerous television interviews on Thursday about the cash he used to pay the filing fee, especially given the fact that he is receiving unemployment benefits and is represented in criminal court by a public defender.

He said it was his own money.

    You know I gave thought about calling Clyburn but he is not my representative

    so I will leave it to the citizens of his district, and the Rainbow Coalition

  10. Man what a choice–DeMint v. Greene.

    I’d either vote third party or leave that race blank if I lived in SC. No way I could vote for either of those clowns.

  13. This is bad stuff..
    The guy is challenged. This is vile.

    Whether a joke, plant, racial attack, someone should stop it.. And SC didn’t need one more story piling up.
