#1 Clyburn: DeMint Opponent May Be 'Republican Plant'06-10-2010, 02:17 PMI noted yesterday the unusual story of Alvin Greene, the unemployed, felony-indicted Army vet who managed to win the Democratic nomination in the South Carolina Senate race, despite having not held a single campaign event or spent a single dollar on the race.
Now House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D., S.C.) is calling for his state to investigate Greene's victory, and suggested that he might be a "Republican plant."
"There were some real shenanigans going on in the South Carolina primary," Clyburn said during an appearance on the liberal Bill Press radio show. "I don't know if he was a Republican plant; he was someone's plant."

What they fail to address (and for good reason) is that he got something like 60 percent of the vote.

I wonder what he's been charged with. You don't suppose he's a community organizer, too? :D--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
