The powerful Democratic Caucus member, Clyburn, is suggesting that Alvin Greene is a plant:
COLUMBIA, S.C. - U.S. Congressman James Clyburn suggested Thursday that Alvin Greene may be a "plant" in the Democratic U.S. Senate race in South Carolina and called for a full investigation. Greene shocked the state by winning the primary, despite having no money and running no campaign.
Here's the reported tally:
Alvin M Greene 58.96% 99,971 votes
Vic Rawl 41.04% 69,572 votes
Total number of votes cast: 169,543
That's right groovy guys and gals, the man simply put his name on the ballot and abracadabra, presto change-o, he wins it. No money. no website, no campaign appearances -- this guy just waltzes to victory (literally) sight unseen.
Seems like a benign fairy tale, right?
Wrong. It turns out that all is not golden in the Palmetto State.
Greene is apparently facing obscenity charges involving a 19 year old white university student, over the age of consent. The row that has ensued his victory is over that.... and the fact that he was able to come up with money necessary to file a candidacy, when he supposedly is indigent. We know this because he is unemployed, lives with his dad, and requested a court-appointed lawyer in his legal charges.
Because of these oddities, the Democratic world of hackery is claiming he is a GOP plant.
Who knows? All of this may be true.
But here's the truth that no one wants to tell you:
Vic Rawl, his opponent in the primary, was a relative unknown name too. One major difference in the two is Greene is black, and Rawl is white.
No one vetted this guy before the vote took place. They just placed him on the ballot and let the voters vote.
Since a huge number of Democrats in SC are blacks or white guilt-ridden intellectual elitists, they voted for the man solely based on his skin color. They could not have voted on his policy proposals or his stands on the issues, because he did not articulate any.
And now, Clyburn thinks that a Republican must be behind it all. He even has implicated the voting machines, which are the same machines that carried him back to victory in HIS primary.
To be honest, I can understand why he would suspect the GOP plant part of this story. He thinks his own challenger was a plant. I can also understand why he would want us all to believe there was some hanky panky with the voting machines. Apparently, the SC Democratic Party is full of racists and Jim doesn't want the world to know that skin color is the determining factor in this particular election race.
