Alvin Greene, “staffer” escorted away from Dem event in SC

Your Tuesday night comic relief, via CNN:

Washington (CNN) – Embattled Democratic Senate candidate Alvin Greene was escorted from a meeting of the Oconee County Democratic Party on Saturday after police received reports that he and a companion were causing a disturbance.

Greene had been invited to attend the group’s routine breakfast meeting, but was disinvited after he was indicted by a grand jury on obscenity charges. But he showed up anyway, and according Seneca Police Chief John Covington, one of his staffers became angry and engaged in an argument with meeting attendees.

According to the police report filed after the incident, Greene’s companion, Dottie Sue Maggart-Feldman, argued with several members of the breakfast party, but that the altercation did not turn violent.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall at that one …

Alvin GreeneHaven’t written much about Greene since the “debate” officially ended over whether or not SC Democrats were going to try and do an end run around the system to have another candidate placed on the ballot, but every once in a while, just when I am at my wit’s end about politics here in NC, I need to be reminded just how much worse it is down there – for the SC Democrat party in particular. I mean, there is still not a rational answer from any of them as to how Greene won the nomination in the first place. I suspect my theory that the Dem electorate down there is largely clueless is pretty close to the money, but of course no one down there on the left would dare admit it …

Bonus Question: Wonder if Democrat voters in SC will get Greene’s name mixed up with the Green Party candidate who is also running to defeat Jim DeMint? The guy’s last name isn’t “Greene” but he does have the word “Green” in his party name and, well, depending on where he shows up on the ballot, it might confuse SC voters. Then again, there’s no “e” at the end of the Green in “Green Party” so maybe they won’t be confused? I dunno …

    The SC Democrats may be clueless but it could be worse. AZ Republicans who just renominated John McCain. How clueless is that? What’s the next level down from clueless? Criminally stupid?

  2. Steve Skubinna says:

    Those Dems just refuse to admit how racist they are. See, there they are, keeping a brother down.

  3. proof says:

    The “Greening” of the Democrat Party!

  4. tonynoboloney says:

    Its all about race with the Democrats. Look at Detroit & Kwame Kilpatrick. Marion Berry in DC, and countless others.

  5. PE says:

    The SC Democrats are just headed in their natural born direction, in an evolutionary fashion.

    The scary part about this guy is that with the very high population of black’s in our venerable state, especially in the Midlands and Low Country, he could actually win! (But, of course, it’s not about the color of your skin, now is it???)

  7. Kate says:

    Where’s the support of the Congressional Black Caucus for this guy? Has anyone checked his credentials with them? Maybe he’s not the kind of “black” they are looking for or they have enough pawns at the moment.

  8. Paul says:

    As a South Carolinian, I do not consider Mr. Greene a viable candidate. He won’t be elected in this state. I base this on what I know of the man himself and not his skin color.
