From the Huffington Post.Hmm, this makes categorically no sense. Let me guess, South Carolina uses electronic voting? Oh right. They do. Is the Secretary of State, the person who runs elections in South Carolina, a RepubliCon? Oh right. He is. Yeah this doesn't add up. This is too blatant.
Alvin Greene UPSET: Mystery Man Stuns In South Carolina Senate Primary
By SEANNA ADCOX
"COLUMBIA, S.C. — An unemployed military veteran who raised no funds and put up no campaign website shocked South Carolina's Democratic Party leadership by capturing the nomination Tuesday to face Republican U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint in November.
With nearly all precincts reporting, Alvin Greene, 32, commanded 59 percent of the vote against 41 percent for former four-term state lawmaker Vic Rawl, 64, who had raised about $186,000 and had to abruptly scrap a late-week fundraiser for the fall.
State Democratic Party Chairwoman Carol Fowler said voters unfamiliar with either candidate may have voted alphabetically for Greene over Rawl. "As far as I know, he never showed up at anything. Vic Rawl has been campaigning everywhere from the time he filed," she said."
Rachel and Olbermann have been covering this tonight on MSNBC, and with good reason. This stinks.
To quote House Whip Jim Clybourn, who is from South Carolina and does not even know who the hell he is: "There's some real shenanigans going on in the Democratic primary here in South Carolina."
