UPDATE: Greene Howls and Wails at Reporter!
The story of crazy Alvin got even more interesting this weekend after a television crew showed up at his father's home where he lives and asked about the indictment. Greene told the crew to leave then wailed "NOOOOOOO" and "GOOOOO" as the reporter questioned Greene's brother who happened to show up as the crew was leaving.
Great political theater!
As much as Democrats in SC and across the country would like to distance themselves from Greene, who is running as a candidate for Senate against the solid conservative Jim DeMint, Greene's behavior is only slightly more bizarre than the daily nincompoopery we see from Obama and Democrats nationwide.
COLUMBIA, S.C. – Longshot U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene has been indicted on a felony charge of showing pornography to a South Carolina college student.There was never any question about Greene, or any Democrat in SC, offering a serious challenge to Sen. Jim DeMint (campaign web site). DeMint's standing among conservatives, based on his excellent advocacy of conservative principles and opposing Obama's big government power grab, made him a virtual shoe-in regardless of who his Democrat opponent might be.
Court records show a grand jury in Richland County handed down the indictment Friday for disseminating, procuring or promoting obscenity. The Democratic nominee was also indicted on a misdemeanor charge of communicating obscene materials to a person without consent.
Greene was arrested in November after authorities say he approached a student in a University of South Carolina computer lab, showed her obscene photos online, then talked about going to her dorm room.
Greene has not entered a plea and has refused to talk about the accusations in interviews.
He faces Republican U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint in the fall.
Democrats in South Carolina must be embarrassed at this sad spectacle in the same way that Democrats in New York and California are finding it difficult to defend their support of Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) and Rep. Maxine Waters(D-CA)after the charges were filed regarding their corruption and misconduct.
Democrats promised that if given control of Congress they would "drain the swamp" of corruption and misdeeds. Apparently, that didn't apply to Democrats caught in worse situations than Republicans.
