Hackers must be behind Senate candidate Alvin Greene's victory in the South Carolina Democratic primary last week, Rep. James Clyburn claimed in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday.
Trying to account for how a candidate who had no money and no campaign infrastructure was able to pull out a victory over a well-funded local lawmaker in a statewide race, the powerful South Carolina Democrat said the touch-screen voting machines used by the state are notoriously unreliable. Without citing evidence, Clyburn said the voting machines could have been compromised.
"I believe there was some hacking done into that computer," Clyburn told Fox News, suggesting that somebody at the state could have deliberately bought those machines so that the system would be vulnerable. South Carolina uses a machine called the iVotronic.
"Maybe somebody wanted the machines that were easily hacked into ... We had no business with those machines in South Carolina," he said.
The State Election Commission rejected that theory on Tuesday. Chris Whitmire, spokesman for the commission, said the department has not detected even a hint of fraud or hacking in Tuesday's election and dismissed the charge that the system is not dependable.

Clyburn has descended into Looneyville.
Does anyone take anything Clyburn says seriously ?
Clyburn can’t bring himself to admit that the Dem’ voters are idiots.
I would have guessed hacking and coughing, but whatever...
Someone call the waaaaaaaambulance.
13% of the US population - 28% in South Carolina.
Could Clyburn be using the strategy the DNC is planning to use in the Fall when Dems lose races to Republicans?
Prove it, James.
Is there a TV upstairs? I like to watch.
>> Hackers must be behind Senate candidate Alvin Greene’s victory in the South Carolina Democratic primary last week,
Maybe Greene’s primary win was a protest vote. Or maybe it was simply Bush’s fault.
So the media will start calling him a “funny name” like “birfer” and use it 24-7, right? Right?
CNN, Washington Post, where arrrrre you?
The ruling class will never allow a threat to their power.
“I believe there was some hacking done into that computer,”
Well, apparently he know the correct terminology, (”hacking done into”) ... so he should be taken seriously.
if this is true, where was he when the decision was made to use these machines in the first place?
Clyburn is obviously racist. How else do you explain his questioning of the electoral victory of a black man?
