Democrats: Now the elections are being stolen by Alvin Greene!

Oh and just for the folks who can't tolerate that source....

CSMonitor
Washington Post
CBSNews

The story of course is about Alvin Greene and how he won a Democratic primary to challenge for the office of Senator in South Carolina.

The biggest problem for the party is that he isn't the guy that they endorsed. Also he managed to win over their approved candidate without having any money, having any fund-raising, without doing more than apparently campaigning in true door to door fashion.

This of course presents a problem because.... well because they don't own him lock, stock and barrel and of course it means someone did something other than what was centrally planned.

The Democratic party officials have responded in a fashion typical for such an outrageous outcome, and by outrageous we mean it wasn't the one they desired.

1. Greene must have been a plant.
The claim is that Green must have been a very sneaky, and by sneaky we mean really uppity, black man who was actually placed there by Republicans. The proof of this is the reasoning of course that all black people do whatever the Democratic party officials tell them to do and since they didn't tell them to do this... it must be a plant!

2. Greene is a very scary and of course SEXUAL black man who will rape your daughters.
There is an allegation that Greene showed a college age woman a computer screen that had a pornographic website on it. Even if this were 100% true, should it even be a crime?

3. Those darn voting machines have shown.... irregularities. The favorite fun word every time a Democrat doesn't get the result they like. There are convenient proxies who swear the machines did just the opposite of what they wanted and it wasn't worth noticing, until Greene won.

4. Finally the issue comes down to paperwork and money. Greene apparently shouldn't have any and couldn't have any so no matter how he won, he can't really run. They'll find some 'i' that wasn't dotted or some 't' that wasn't crossed and will declare this proof of... well something I guess.

I think the Democrats are burning some serious bridges here. When everyone who disagrees with them is a violent, hateful bigot, when every result that isn't to their liking is a plant, proof of voter fraud, or of course proof of hate via sexual violence aka sexism, then what they heck do they have left?

I couldn't tell you whether I would vote for Greene. However the man himself is not without sound credential for running for office. He has a degree in Political Science. He has an honorable discharge for having served in the U.S. Army and Air Force. Why shouldn't he be given a chance?

You don't think there's anything suspicious about an unemployed man, who lives with his parents, and qualifies for legal aid, spending $10,000 to run in an election that he's likely not going to win (not the primary but the actual senate seat)?

Suspicious? You'll no doubt see similarities to another suspicious candidate in 2008:

"Yes, how could a young African-American man with strange origins, suspicious funding, shady associations, no experience, no qualifications, and no demonstrable work history come out of nowhere and win an election?"

What office is worth the amount of money made by it in this day and age? How is this different than most office holders? I started a thread a couple years ago about the net-worth of Biden and he is VP and ran for president of the U.S. while being basically broke.

Suspicious...of what, exactly? Is there any evidence he's a Republican plant? If he was, don't you think they'd do a little more to ensure he won the primary? By all accounts, the man didn't even campaign. The Republicans would have spent a lot more if he was their guy. So how did he win? Simple...he sort of shares a name with this guy:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Green

The local TV/Radio people interviewed folks who said that they hadn't heard of Vic Rawl, but the other guy's name sounded like "Al Green the singer" to them. It was a fluke. It's hilarious, because it exposed what many Democratic voters are: Stupid.

Free Alvin Greene!

South Carolina's top law enforcement agency announced Friday that it will not file charges against Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene.

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) had been investigating how Greene, a political newcomer who could not afford a lawyer when facing criminal charges last year, came up with the $10,440 needed to get his name on the Democratic Senate primary ballot.

"After a thorough investigation, SLED has concluded that there is no evidence of wrongdoing, criminal intent or deception to the court when Greene applied for a public defender last year," the agency said in a statement Friday.

"During the course of the investigation, SLED determined that monies spent for Greene's filing fee were the candidate's personal funds and therefore, no laws were violated in association with Greene's payment to the South Carolina Democratic Party," SLED said.

Greene has long maintained that he tapped into his personal savings to pay the filing fee.

Just yet another example of the "We didn't win and so everyone else must be a cheat and a liar since that is how we win and we know the game" routine by Democrats who don't like election results.
