When Alvin Greene won the Democratic nomination for the senate seat in South Carolina, many believed that he was a Republican Plant. Greene has no name recognition, no job, and lets face it; he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. Congressman Clyburn wanted an investigation on how an unemployed person was able to get the $10,000 fee to get into the race.
Well, the investigation is now complete. Turns out that since he lives in his parents basement, he was able to use the money that he has been collecting from all those extended unemployment benefits to pay his fee.
We have to be honest here, the republicans had no reason to plant anyone into this race, Senator DeMint has close to a 70% approval rating, no matter who runs against him has a very long row to hoe. But, this is just too rich not to comment on.
