I am sure by now that you have heard this story, Alvin Greene is the nominee for the senate in South Carolina. He will be running against Jim DeMint.
This man had no website, didn't really campaign, never filed anything with the FEC about his fundraising activities. He lives with his parents, doesn't have a job, has a cloudy military record, and is facing felony charges for showing a college student pornographic material. It is very strange indeed. So strange that Jim Clyburn is asking for an investigation on how he won the nomination, and is asking him to drop out of the race.
I think the question we should be asking is exactly how bad was his opponent?
Although with all the nonsense that has been going on in South Carolina of late, maybe it isn't so bizarre.
