The Democrat's Best

Looks Like Senator Jim DeMint will have even less problem being re-elected this fall given his Democrat opponent. Doesn't say much for the intelligence or viability of Democrats in South Carolina........This guy is so inconsequential he doesn't even qualify for our Hall of Shame Award.

"Alvin Greene, the man who won the South Carolina Democratic Senate nomination last night despite having no money, no web site and really no campaign at all, has a felony charge pending, the Associated Press reports.

Court records show 32-year-old Alvin Greene was arrested in November and charged with showing obscene Internet photos to a University of South Carolina student. The felony charge carries up to five years in prison.

Greene said he had no comment when asked about the charge Wednesday and hung up on a reporter.

Last night, Greene, an unemployed veteran, astonishingly beat Vic Rawl, a judge and former state legislator, with 59% of the vote. Democratic Party Chairwoman Carol Fowler told the AP that "people who didn't know either candidate and voted alphabetically may help explain Greene's win."

If he remains the nominee in November, he'll face the popular conservative incumbent Jim DeMint."
