Skip to comments.(Dem) Rawls To Protest Greene Victory-(Grab The Popcorn!)
Posted on 06/14/2010 2:13:26 PM PDT by tcrlaf
South Carolina Democratic candidate Vic Rawl announced Monday hell 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 states 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 Tuesdays 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.

The RATs have no problem with the usurper illegally occupy the Oval office but they’re all upset over Greene? LOL!
Where were these morons during the election?
There are no 'do-overs' on FB.
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.”
HA HA.............. ;o)
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.
Is that how you ended up with a misspelled handle?
Maybe a cloud of pot smoke. First Lindsey Gram and now this? S.C., the Minnesota of the South...
Always looking to keep a black man down!
Racist White Dem tells elected Black Dem to get off the bus!!
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.
Mr. Rawls is embarrassed to the core. If he was old school Japanese the solution would hari-kari.
GO JIM DEMINT!
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....
Is it a cloud or a black stain? How did an unauthorized Black man get out of the cage?
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.
But is he articulate? That's the real question. "Biden...Mr. Joe Biden...please pick up the white courtesy phone"
LOL!!! It sure is! I didn't think I'd be here for long and signed on quick to talk to another person and just picked the handle cause I just ate an avocado sandwich. Now I am stuck with a dumb name and a misspelled one at that! Oh well, it's unique.
Just teasing with ya!
Obamah inspired voters.
GO GREENE GO!!!!
I am so confused now.
Someone e-mailed Howie Carr and said he should have changed his name to Lou Rawls.
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 ...
For all of you that are on facebook, http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=130073940349784&ref=ts
Support Alvin Greene’s win, and right to run for senate... lol
Nobody heard of Greene, but Rawls thinks he's famous; actually, nobody heard of him, either.
Republicans; no, No this does ~NOT~ affect Republicans!
I really like the silver lining in that cloud.
It just keeps getter better and better.
ROFLMAO! That’s funny.
A woman on another board I frequent calls herself “Lightening Bug”. She hasn’t yet figured out yet what she did that was wrong, even after I practically told her right out loud that it was really Lightning Bug.
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.
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. :(
Racists!!! Trying to keep the black man down. Shame on them.
I said this before, so again: This is like going to the zoo only to find two rats arguing about a piece of cheese while an 800# Gorilla in the room (named Jim DeMint) watches them. What folly ... who cares?
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.
