Skip to comments.Clyburn says S.C. Dem Senate candidate a 'plant'; calls for probe

The man nominated as Democrats' candidate for Senate in South Carolina might have been a "plant," a high-ranking Democrat suggested Thursday.
House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) called for South Carolina to investigate the circumstances that led to Alvin Greene winning the Democratic Senate primary in his state earlier this week.
"There were some real shenanigans going on in the South Carolina primary," Clyburn said during an appearance on the liberal Bill Press radio show. "I don't know if he was a Republican plant; he was someone's plant."
The third-ranking House Democrat said he found it strange that Greene, a relative unknown prior to Tuesday, was able to produce the money to register and run for Senate despite being unemployed.

It doesn’t matter. People can vote for a tree stump if it makes it onto the ballot.
Well...some think the current President is a “plant”
Bush did it.
This has to be the most uncovered story in the history of uncovered stories. The Democrat nominee for US Senator is facing a felony trial for lewd behavior, and NOT A PEEP about it from the mainstream media.
I’m guessing ACORN or the SEIU is behind this guy and the democrats will drop their demands for an investigation pretty quickly.
What law was broken, Clyburn, even if someone else gave him the money? Perhaps the Democrats just don't want a Black person that is off the plantation to be running on the Democrat ticket.
This guy is a dolt. Shep had a telephone interview with him and the man sounds as if he may be a tad bit looney.
That's because this is proof the MSM can't do their job. If the media were examining the Dems even half as much as they examine Republicans they would have caught this long ago.
I heard Alvin Greene on the talk radio this morning and he sounded dumb as a plant. I laughed through the whole thing. Even the radio host didn't know what to say when the interview was over.
To say Greene's not articulate would be a gross understatement. I don't know if he missed his morning coffee or that's just the way he is all the time. I'm sure the SC Dem party officials must be going psycho over this. Hilarious.
“...and NOT A PEEP about it from the mainstream media.”
Its proof of fascism....the union of the media and the Democratic party....with collusion of the FTC/FCC to boot.
The guy was just doing a phone interview on Fox. He is a moron and looney, but then that qualifies him for the demo-rat party.
Seems the Army discharged him for being a pain in the ass.
It will look sleazy, though oddly efficient for the GOP, if they were behind it, but its certainly not illegal and not reversable.
Liberals LURVED open primaries when they could use them to help saddle us with McCain. Suddenly, they're an outrage.
The SC Dim party is comprised of a majority that is made up of minorities who would unfailingly vote for a minority candidate. Knowing that in advance the Dims made the plant so that later, when the timing is such that an attractive candidate can get on the ballot at the last minute and not face much scrutiny, they could get rid of the plant and install a hand picked candidate.
As proof I off the fact that Dims usually are the first to accuse others of something that they have in fact done themselves.
That and the fact that they have pulled just that kind of stunt in numerous other elections.
Democrats really are monsters. If poor Al Greene really is “mental” and manages to attract enough ignorant ‘Rat votes to get a nomination, they could at least trash him privately and not publicly humiliate the guy.
And besides, he is at least as qualified, and obviously less demented, than Al Frankin.
Jokes aside, I’ve followed SC politics for decades and I have no clue as to what happened here. I’ve turned it over and over in my mind and the only thing I come back to is the inteligence of the average SC Democrate voter. Look how long Clyburn has been around.
“It is troublesome at best. I think his mental capacity may prohibit him from getting the joke.”
He said Greene should undergo “some sort of mental evaluation”
I think ALL Democraps should have a mental evaluation!!
>and NOT A PEEP about it from the mainstream media.
Well, thank God. - that might get him elected for life with the dem contingent.
Look at Kennedy, Frank & Kucinch
First, the Democrats denied Jesse Jackson the VP nomination he earned for running second in the 1988 primaries.
Then they got white hack Ben Cardin to defeat Kwasi Mfume in the 2006 primary so they wouldn’t have to run a black Senatorial candidate in heavily Democratic racist Maryland. The Cardin victory over Michael Steele, a black, gave the white Democrats control of the Senate.
Now, they’re doing this to Green.
Why, oh why, do so many blacks support the party of the Ku Klux Klan?
The average dim in SC usually doesn’t have much going on upstairs.
Well if ANYBODY knows about election fraud, it’s a democrat.
Psychological projection by the Crazy Party onto the Stupid Party.
If only the Republicans were capable of this.
The democrat party IS ABLE to do this type of massive deception: Obama is a prime example.
You got that right!
So this guy paid his 10 grand 3 months ago and the SC Dem apparatus never looked into him? Give me a break. Sure looks like he won fair and square. If the Dem leadership doesn’t like it they’ve no one to blame but themselves.
Yes. Dumb as a stump. He can barely get out a coherent thought. It was the funniest interview I've ever heard.
One of the three things he wants to address in DC is "justice". Justice? I guess for a man facing a felony obscenity charge, "justice" would be on his mind.
Wow! You are talking worst than Bob Casey Jr. dumb, Al Franken dumb, Barbara Boxer dumb or even Patricia Bin Murray dumb, aren’t you?
After reading more about the felony obscenity charge I'm of the opinion that there's something fishy about that. I guess if you jump into politics and aren't one of the "chosen few" better watch out.
