Clyburn: 'Elephant dung all over the place'

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) today repeated his earlier suspicions that the Democrat’s Senate candidate in South Carolina might have been a “plant.”

“I believe he’s someone’s plant,” Clyburn said this morning on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I saw in the Democratic primary elephant dung all over the place.” Clyburn has called on state officials to investigate how Alvin Greene won the Senate primary last week. Greene, who was essentially unknown before Tuesday’s primary, is unemployed and is allegedly facing felony charges for showing pornographic images to a college student. Clyburn said he suspects campaign laws were broken by Greene, who allegedly tried to pay his registration fees with cash and had no previous political backing in the state.

It is nothing short of disgraceful, and despicable, that people like Clyburn have seats in our United States Congress.
Very ignorant people elected by a more ignorant constituency.

He won by 9 points last time. Even with a better dem opponent it won’t be that close.

Looks like the Dems are having trouble vetting candidates. Little things like felony charges, proof of citizenship, etc. Just small things you know.

U.S. House of Representatives District 6 - DEM

Percent Votes Votes
Gregory Brown (DEM) 9.93% 5,527

Judging by our recent primary he doesn't have to.

I agree, and the guy is clearly a Democrat, with typical Democrat ideas which makes him the wrong choice in the general election. But to me that makes the situation all the more ironic. Suddenly when a guy who actually has more education and experience than many Democrats but that is not a part of the political elite of the Democrat party runs and wins he is portrayed as a plant, a dufus, childlike, unemployed, etc. by his own party members.

Watching supposedly unbiased, post partisan liberals in action is hilarious.

....allegedly facing felony charges for showing pornographic images to a college student...

I thought this was strange. How can it be a crime to show a college student a pornographic image ? College is nothing but a get drunk, get naked and hookup experience anyway....Student was under 18 ??

Every black political office holder is racist against their own people. If you’re black and it looks like you can’t win, you’re stabbed in the back by the blacks in office. Win at all costs!

The Black prisoners of the Democrat Plantation may be ready to rise up and send a message to their White Democrat Leader Overlords.

Racism, pure and simple - garden-variety racism from the party of Byrd and the KKK.

How can it be a crime to show a college student a pornographic image ?

She was in a computer lab in the basement of her USC dorm, it was supposed to be a "keycard access" area. He approached her and asked if she liked football, when she turned to acknowledge his question he showed her some very graphic "hardcore" pictures and asked if she wanted to go up to her room. She left the area and reported the incident, he was apprehended by the campus police. Mr.Greene was not unknown to them, apparently he had spent a good deal of time hanging around the women's dorms.

It may not be illegal to produce, possess and view such images but you can't walk up to people at random and show them to people.

Or maybe, they thought it was the Other Al Greene, you know the singer,lol

My thought, too. Between being the first name on the ballot (always the best spot), people older than 45 probably have good memories of Rev. Al Green.

Green is still going. Check out this 2007 version of People Get Ready.

Maybe because he got more votes than anyone else? (Are ALL RATS mentally challenged?)
