CAROL FOWLER is CRYING "FOUL" in SOUTH CAROLINA (and I can't stop smiling!)
jbjd ^ | 06/11/10 | jbjd

Posted on 06/10/2010 11:06:41 PM PDT by jbjd

...Carol Fowler - she's married to Don Fowler, former Chair of the DNC Services Corporation - and her dupe-in-crime, Senator Clyburn, seemed shocked that this candidate they find to be so inappropriate to the D brand could have won their spot for U.S. Senate on the November ballot, right? But that makes no sense. Know why? (You are going to love this next part.)

Because in SC, in order to vie for a position as the nominee for the party; the candidate must register for the primary directly through the party! Yep; Mr. Greene filed the required paperwork with the DPSC and handed over the $10,400 filing fee directly to them. The SCDP then forwarded his name, along with his filing fee, to election officials at the SC Election Commission("SCEC") to get them to print his name next to the D on the primary ballot. And, presumably, as required by state law, someone from the DPSC swore he was or at the time of the election would be eligible for the job! http://www.scstatehouse.gov/code/t07c011.htm

HA HA HA HA HA! I'll bet anything Carol Fowler wishes she'd done a better job of vetting this candidate!...

Don’t you have to get a certain amount of names on a petition or something? You can just file a fee and get on a ballot in SC???

Same way they run the country, why should we be surprised. Look at how Obama was vetted.

Liberals are reaching a point taught to them. Let the games begin. (Yet they are clueless on that point).

Jim Clyburn has claimed that the Republicans put the guy on the ballot (planted), but don’t put it past Clyburn planting this guy himself. Sounds crazy, but I noticed that Clyburn actually had a primary Challenger? Very strange in that district, I lived in that district and it was gerrymandered in the 90’s and I don’t remember Clyburn having a primary challenger in a long, long time.

The guy got about 100k votes and Clyburn got 50K in the 6th district alone (I'll wager that everyone that voted for Clyburn voted for Alvin. Hummm, maybe Jim was getting worried and thought he needed an additional draw on the ballot. I don’t know why, as he got 90% of the vote in the primary, but don’t put it past this guy to throw the entire party under the bus to insure a victory in November ( I also noticed he might have a serious opponent for the General).

If this guy stays in to the general in November you can bet Clyburn is really behind this move IMHO.

BTW Clyburn is from Sumter, SC which is very close to Manning, SC which is where Alvin Greene is from. Just seem curious to me.

I posted the law, for your convenience. See, one thing I find a lot of people miss when they check their state election laws for things like filing deadlines; is that usually, two (2) sets of laws exist, one for party candidates and one for non-party candidates. And even for party candidates, to get the name printed on the general election ballot, there’s one deadline for party candidates nominated by primary; and another deadline for party candidates nominated by Convention. So, for example, filing deadline for D Presidential candidates to get their names printed on the general election ballot is after the nominating Convention at the end of the summer; but the deadline for candidates for U.S. Senate for the same general election ballot, is after the primary.

Yes, and I am hoping that point is not missed. (Did you read the whole article?)

But I have to tell you, the ‘evidence’ is mounting that, no one is ‘checking’ anyone, except us! Sooner or later, some reporter has to pick up on the fact, the on-line COLB is only campaign advertisement after all, right?

Greene paid his $10,400 fee.

He was backed, I suspect, by the Wateree Community Actions group.

It’s an ACORN like outfit that got millions from the Obama stimulus for jobs creation.

SC Manning and Sumter counties are 12-15% reported unemployed.

WCA has not hired anybody.

I was tempted to ‘out’ more of Mr. Clyburn’s insanity; but I decided to stay focused on the lack of vetting.

There was so much more I could have written. For example, Mr. Greene was sufficiently indigent when charged with the felony, he qualified for a state lawyer. But a few months later, he had $10,400 for the filing fee. (Mr. Clyburn said, Mr. Greene attempted to pay this in cash.) (Hmmm, how did he know this, given that he was so surprised to learn of Mr. Greene’s particulars AFTER HE WON THE PRIMARY!)

I will let that fester. We sometimes are not in control but it’s hard to tell when we are. Being ever so vigilant is the key. We do not determine the time or place. We do determine the ability. :^)

Greene is a young Black guy that got (honorably) kicked out of the Army.

If this guy was a setup by Clyburn/DNC to make sure he's protected then they must be really worried about November or know/sense something we don't. Just saying, I hope it's true.

I cannot say that WCA was involved. But, where is all this “stimulus” money?

And the Air Force. Reports from Mother Jones had his supervisors in both services say the guy was too dumb to live.

Or, so I have heard.

Obama didn’t piss it all away. Until they answer to the attacks of Sept. 2008 they can kiss my ass. The whole damn muslim world drained 1/3 and he knows it. It was calculated to show our vulnerability in the market. Why don’t they go ahead and do it. Instead this assclown is bowing down.

Tellyawhat, Alvin comes across as a real whizbang candidate! I can’t wait to see him in a debate.

I intentionally left out references to Mr. Greene’s military service, mainly because the natural focus of the piece kept coming back to vetting; but also because I was unable to conclude definitively the facts about his service. And I would hate to misrepresent a person’s military service.

Poor guy; how could the DPSC not have known? (Of course, this does not let SC voters who voted for him off the hook, either!)

Please, I did it again! The word I wrote in the title is misspelled. “CAROLINE” should read, “CAROLINA.”

Can you please change that final “E” to an “A”?

Thank you very much.

I wonder what sort of policy expert they expect him to become once he’s in the Senate...

For some reason, the word kakistocracy keeps coming to mind...

Actually, to many of those who voted for him he may seem to be a MENSA candidate.

I intentionally did not focus on Mr. Greene’s credentials as a candidate but rather on the ‘vetting process’ that put his name on the ballot. Because this is where the real hot story is; and the sooner we get that word out, the sooner SC AG McMaster will investigate the citizen complaints of election fraud in the 2008 election cycle against the DPSC et al., filed with his office by the outraged citizens of the Palmetto State.

I think you have to ping Admin Moderator to have changes made.

Greene is just a typical Democrat office seeker. The party is filled with perverts, criminals, mental rejects and idiots. Witness Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Frank, Blago et al. They all look alike to me.

As I have stated earlier, I tried not to focus too much on the candidate. Obviously, several aspects of this story merited attention. But my main goal is to ‘out’ the fact, no one is vetting anyone. So how can anyone say with certainty, BO is a NBC? Especially when those D’s who Certified to state election officials he was, refuse to reveal on what documentary basis they were able to ascertain beforehand, this was true?

(Sorry this reply took so long.)

The process required to register for a slot on a state ballot is different depending on such factors as whether the candidate seeks to represent a major political party; whether the registration is accomplished directly by the candidate or through the party; or which office the candidate seeks.
