(Dem) Rawls To Protest Greene Victory-(Grab The Popcorn!)
Politico ^ | 6-14-09 | DAVID CATANESE

Posted on 06/14/2010 2:13:26 PM PDT by tcrlaf

South Carolina Democratic candidate Vic Rawl announced Monday he’ll lodge a protest against the June 8 primary vote that handed the little-known Alvin Greene the Democratic nomination for Senate.

Citing a “cloud” hanging over the result, Rawl said his 18-percentage-point loss to Greene — who showed few signs of running an operational campaign — warrants further investigation in order to ensure confidence in the state’s election system.

“There is a cloud over South Carolina, that affects all of our people, Democrats and Republicans, white and African-American alike. At this point, the people of our state do not have the basic confidence that their vote will be counted,” Rawl said.

“The strange circumstances surrounding Tuesday’s vote require a thorough investigation. For better or worse, this protest process is the only platform currently available for that investigation,” he continued.

The former lawmaker outlined slightly different reasons for the protest than were originally offered by his campaign.

Columbia, SC - A South Carolina senator is asking authorities to impound voting machines that were used during Tuesday’s South Carolina statewide primaries.

Sen. Phil Leventis is asking for the South Carolina Law Enforcement division to impound the machines with a full accounting of the vote totals to be conducted.

In a letter by Leventis, he writes, “Many irregularities occurred in the Democratic primary for United States senate. For instance, it has been reported 25 precints in Spartanburg County, one of the Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate received more votes than were actually cast and there were 50 other precints where votes appeared to be missing from the final count.”

LISTEN UP AMERICA; THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS RACIST!!! They just don't want to see a Black man succeed. The Democratic Party's racism of the 50s and 60s is on the rise again.
Where the crap is Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

We should fully support Alvin Greene. From what I am hearing the democrats are accusing him of being; poor, illiterate, mentally handicapped, and incompetent to run a well founded campaign. This just seems like racism to me. Calling on the NAACP and Jesse Jackson.

The Democrat party is not only racist but filled with a bunch of PUSSIES. They cannot comprehend someone ‘losing’. Here is but another example - a grown man crying that he lost. What a bunch of PUSSIES.

Greene is a joke, but the joke conceals something much more serious. When the people who lose elections no longer respect and refuse to abide by the results of those elections days of this republic are surely numbered. We may not like Obama, and work tirelessly to defeat him, but we did not on the day after the election maintain that John McCain was president. While we may grab the popcorn the president being set here is more dangerous than can possibly be imagined. If the Democrat elite take it upon themselves to throw out the results of elections that they don’t like. Then we will never be rid of Reid, Pelosi and Obama. Then comes the civil war and the end of these United States.

There aren’t any dem primary runoffs so only repubs are doing runoffs June 22 in SC. Anybody who casted a vote for the dems can’t vote for the repubs in the runoff but if they didn’t vote at all in the original primary they can go to the runoffs and claim republican....

Obviously, Rawls is a RACIST. If not, he would not mind that a black man beat him! I’m looking forward to ACORN coming to Greene’s rescue and Sharpton and Rev. Jessie will hold marches outside Rawls headquarters! The National NAALCP will have an official statement supporting Greene and castigating Rawls as a RACIST on PMSNBC shortly, I’m sure.

By liberal\MSM definitions, isn't any questioning of validity or opposition of a duly elected person of color inherently racist?

I am so confused now.

Calling for a review of the election is within the rulz - but I highly doubt that a margin of 18 points wuz “engineered” by fraud ...

The challenger just got a good old-fashioned Southern ass-whuppin’ and he should tke it like a man ...

The idea that Republicans would cross over to spoil this race, and lose their chance to vote in the hot GOP gov primary, is ludicrous.

Nobody heard of Greene, but Rawls thinks he's famous; actually, nobody heard of him, either.

I was reading another thread on this from this morning to my wife. She came up with the idea that Mr. Greene, due to his POSSIBLE lack of mental acuity, may be the choice of the “powers that be” because he can be easily controlled.

That’s her opinion. Frankly (even though I love my wife), it sounds a little too ‘tin-foil hat’ to me. However, given the Dims penchant for vote fraud, obfuscation,and their exceeding desire to get power at any cost...you never know.

It’ll be interesting, in any case.

Supposedly Greene doesn't have enough cash to buy himself a cup of coffee, but all of sudden he found $10K to buy into the election.

Did the NEW invisible ACORN go to far!?!? Oh the Horror!!

The race card was played by GREENE's backers and now. ... FREEPERS rooting for a race argument. :(

Ugly thread

Blacks in America who have been empowered to any degree only scream "racism" when it is to their advantage. They'll kick this poor slob to the curb. Just like the feminists who never defend Sarah Palin when she rises to being a female nominee for VP or when Newsweek runs a sexist front cover picture of her on their liberal rag. But, they will fight to the death for a pro-abortion, feminist hag.

Down here in Texas we call people like that hippercrits (Chuckle.) Well some of us just call them a** holes.

There are only even a few counties where whites actually voted in the Dem primary.

Rawls lost because blacks voted for the black and it says everything that he lost in Charleston County which was an all black primary. Rawls has been around Charleston for years. They actually know who he is. He still almost lost them. It says all that needs to be said.
