South Carolina's Democratic Senate nominee, Alvin Greene, an unemployed veteran who won his party's primary seemingly through the sheer indifference of voters, is refusing to drop out of the race against Republican Jim DeMint. "The Democratic Party has chosen their nominee, and we have to stand behind their choice," Greene told the AP. "The people have spoken. We need to be pro–South Carolina, not anti-Greene." Yeah, why is everyone getting all anti-Greene right now? Is it because the establishment is scared of an outside candidate shaking things up a bit? Or does it have something to do with the creepy way he sneaks into college buildings and shows porn to students?
The incident took place November 12, 2009 at the Bates House residence hall on the University of South Carolina's campus. A female student reported that a man, later identified as Greene, sat down beside her in the computer lab.
The student did not know Greene.
She said the man asked her for her name, room number, and phone number, but she did not give it to him. She told officers that five minutes later, he told her to look at his computer screen, which she said had pornographic images on it. She told him that it was "offensive and not funny," and started to leave. The incident report states that Greene then asked her if he could come to her room, and she told him to leave her alone. The student said she then went up to her room and told her resident mentor about the incident ....
When police arrived, they spoke to residence staff, who said Greene had been entering the Bates House for some time using an old Carolina Card with his picture on it. The staff had been told not to allow him inside the building anymore, but the person working that day had not been made aware of this information, and let Greene in as he normally did.
Persistence. Dedication. Ingenuity. Vote Greene.
