He's only been accused of a felony rather than convicted like Alcee Hastings. He hasn't lied about his military record like Dick Blumenthal.
He has less skeletons in his closet than Barack Obama, Bill Clinton & Teddy Kennedy. His slogan is Jobs, Education, Justice...and he wants to reunite North & South Korea !... He is ALVIN GREENE...HE IS LEGEND
Alvin Michael Greene (born August 30, 1977) is the Democratic Party's nominee in the 2010 United States Senate election in South Carolina. He is the first African-American to be nominated for U.S. Senate by a major party in South Carolina since Reconstruction. Greene faces incumbent Republican Senator Jim DeMint and Green Party candidate Tom Clements in the general election.
Greene won the Democratic primary race against candidate Vic Rawl on June 8, 2010, with 59% of the vote, despite very limited campaigning and campaign spending, no website, and no yard signs. The executive committee of the South Carolina Democratic Party voted 55 to 10 to reject Rawl's request for a new Senate primary after questions were raised about Greene's surprise victory.
Greene graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2000 with a degree in political science and is a United States military veteran who served in the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force before receiving an involuntary honorable discharge in 2009. He is currently unemployed and lives with and cares for his father in Manning, roughly halfway between Columbia and Charleston. Wikipedia link
This man is the most exciting politician currently on the scene -
GO ALVIN !
The following interviews are hilarious evidence that this man is the real McCoy the genuine article...Each interviewer trys to humiliate, confuse, obfuscate or just generally mock Greene, but he is so outside the beltway/mainstream political machine that they all fail miserably. He keeps repeating his slogan of JOBS, EDUCATION & JUSTICE and then hammers them with I got 60% of the vote !( BITCHES)
THE KEITH OLBERMANN MSNBC INTERVIEW
THE DON LEMON CNN INTERVIEW
Lemon qualifies his interview, which is basically admiting that it is going to be a "hit piece". What ensues is pure gold: Lemon challenges his mental state, whether Greene may be "impared by something" & asks about a pending legal charge. Lemon: Are you OK. Green: I'm OK. Lemon: You don't sound OK
Seriously, although he sounds like he's answering with a Magic 8 Ball. How much worse of a senator could he be than the other guy ?
He is accused by his fellow state democrats of being mentally impared. I think he should change his current campaign slogan from" Jobs, Education and Justice" to " I"M OK !...or Alvin Greene...He's so crazy it just might work.
THE LAURA INGRAHM "This or That" RADIO INTERVIEW
Ingrahm tries to make Alvin look foolish, but his answers are so honest & strange that she is cheering for him by the end. If this guy is follwing a script; I wish I wrote it !
LOCAL SOUTH CAROLINA RADIO INTERVIEW
Alvin brilliantly(ok maybe awkwardly is a better word) uses the ole' "I have another call coming in" to exit the interview
The strongest aspect to Greene's campaign is that his is not JIM DeMINT...hey it worked for Barack Obama in 2008 !
