The Alvin Greene show goes local

Alvin Greene got national headlines with his upset win in the Democratic primary for the United States Senate.  One of the oddest political characters in a state whose history is filled with odd characters, Greene is on the scene again.  

After telling folks he was going to run for President of the United States in 2012, Greene appears to be taking his act local.  The AP is reporting that Greene has filed to run for the Democratic nomination in the special election being held in Clarendon County for the SC House after the death of Rep. Cathy Harvin.   

Harvin and her husband who served in the House before her, served the state with distinction.  Other worthy candidates, such as the Mayor of Manning, are jumping into the race, but Greene's entry will guarantee a circus like election.  

It is hard to figure Greene out.  Is he a egoistical pervert with criminal charges pending who has said things like, "I am the greatest individual ever.?" Or is Greene a simple man who is being played by the media looking for something to entertain the public with?  Who knows? 

What is certain is that with Greene in the House race in Clarendon County, the race will have more attention then it otherwise would.  It is going to get wild over there, wait and see. The folks in places like Manning and Summerton better get ready for the CNN trucks and a media blitz.  God help this state and those people if Greene wins the seat.


  1. Greene is the ManJanuary 02, 2011

    Alvin Greene is a great man who will do great things. You are just some old white dude who does not understand the community.

  2. It does not take an old white dude to recognize some people have absolutely no qualifications to hold any office higher than dog catcher(we need more dog catchers). You notice I did not say he does not have the right to run for office. He does have the right to run. Should he run? Just think about it. Now, here's the kicker. I think he has a good chance of winning. There is just enough complacency and straight ticket voting, if not taken seriously, Greene could be the next State Rep for his district. SC must love being fodder for the late night comedians.
