Calls Increasing For Investigation Into South Carolina Primary
The more we see of Alvin Greene, the more there are calls to investigate just how he wound up with the Democratic nomination to face Senator Jim DeMint in South Carolina. Greene, who has refused to discuss felony charges against him and how he left the military “involuntarily” has claimed that he paid the filing fee to run out of his own pocket. Congressman James Clyburn of his state isn’t buying it.
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.”
Greene’s interview with Keith Olbermann Thursday night explains why his nomination is unexplainable.
Greene faired no better in an interview with South Carolina’s ETV.
