Mystery S.C. nominee has pending felony charge
“the guy who just won South Carolina’s Democratic Senate primary…a criminal complaint was sworn out against him last year…

“Greene, a 32-year-old unemployed military veteran who lives with his parents, defeated Vic Rawl on Tuesday for the Democratic Senate nomination despite having run essentially no public campaign — no events, no signs, no debates, no website, no fundraising.

“The result has baffled political observers, who had heavily favored Rawl — a former state legislator, attorney and prosecutor who had the edge inasmuch as he actually campaigned and tried to win. Many in South Carolina (which has grandly lived up to its reputation as a political circus this year) suspect that somewhere, a crafty GOP political operative is snickering.”

    That does seem suspicious. I might have to keep track of this story as it develops.

    Well he has two things going for him. He is black, thus getting the black vote and the other is that people these days aren’t voting for a candidate, they are voting against a candidate. Apparently the SC voters did not like Rawl and voted against him.

    Whats the difference the crooks already in office or the crooks not in yet.At least a marine is trained in the military.I think I would vote for the marine that does not have a huge money backing even if he he did have a scrap with the law.Hey the guy needs a job so may actually do a good job to keep employment.The marine has not been tainted by the sitting governing body.Go Marine,hope you do well.

    From the article, “It’s not uncommon in South Carolina for Republicans to recruit African-American challengers to run against white frontrunners in Democratic primaries in the hope of drumming up racial tensions. (Greene is black.)”

    Those whacky right wingers are at it again.
