Invisible Unemployed Mush Mouth & Accused Sex Offender Wins S.C. Senate Dem Primary

<snip>

The Free Times reminds us that South Carolina Republicans are notorious for running fake candidates. Maybe its what people do these days instead of wearing the white robes:

Greenes curious candidacy raises the question that something else might be going on. Republican place markers in Palmetto State Democratic primaries are campaign legend.

In the early 90s, a Republican strategist was prosecuted and forced to pay a fine when he was found to have coaxed an unemployed black fisherman into running in a primary race to increase white turnout at the polls in a Lowcountry congressional race. The political operative paid the mans filing fee.

1. Unless there was shenanigans at the voting booths
what are we going to do? Yes, if the vote wasn't legit, that's one thing, but this guy won. If the vote is legit, how do you toss him out?

6. I just looked it up.
Green won 58-41% (99K votes to 69K votes). That's a LOT of tampering and a lot of absentee ballots.

4. Someone should go to jail for this!
Once this idiot has his feet held to the fire he'll spill the beans on who put him up to this.

5. Clearly a plant
Follow the money. It came from somewhere, but he has no answer for where: if he was paid by Republican operatives, this is actionable.

9. A quote about his "crime" that might actually help his campaign
"Court records say he was arrested in November and charged with showing obscene Internet photos to a University of South Carolina student, then talking about going to her room at a university dorm".





If true? Them I'm going to jail too. Right Emily?

13. I showed porn to half my dorm in college AND in high school.
Edited on Thu Jun-10-10 03:08 PM by Ian David
I should be locked-up for LIFE.

Fuck...

When I was in High School I hooked-up my VHS camcorder to a friend's Apple computer monitor so we could watch Debbie Goes to College.

11. Not trying to be obtuse here, but I have a question
Is there any video of this man? I frequent MANY progressive websites, and so far have seen none.

And Who is doing this interview? I'm not from South Carolina, I don;t know this outlet.
