    S.C. Democratic Party Considers Overturning Alvin Greene Election Results

    Sore losers do not like the fact their guy lost so now they want to overturn the vote of the people. How would this give them anything other than scorn by the voters? It looks like they just want to hand Jim DeMint a victory with this sore loser squabble they have with the rightful winner of the democratic primary winner.


    FOXNews.com - S.C. Democratic Party Considers Overturning Alvin Greene Election Results

    Alvin Greene said he has no plans to attend a meeting Thursday of party leaders deciding whether to overturn the primary election result that named him the South Carolina Democratic Senate nominee to challenge Sen. Jim DeMint in November.

    In a brief phone interview with FoxNews.com, Greene said he was not attending the state party's executive committee meeting in Columbia to hear a protest by former state lawmaker Vic Rawl, whom he defeated in the June 8 primary.

    South Carolina's Democrats are poised to decide the fate of the election in which Greene, a 32-year-old unemployed military veteran, shocked local officials by winning without raising funds, giving any speeches or holding any rallies.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: S.C. Democratic Party Considers Overturning Alvin Greene Election Results

    ... I'm not really sure what to think. He won the primary, assuming there wasn't any election tampering. (I expect the discrepancies will be just minor clerical errors) Why should that result not be accepted?

    On the other hand, the man doesn't seem to actually want to win. He didn't campaign or raise funds or anything, and he apparently doesn't even care enough to attend the meeting that is challenging his victory? Does he even want to be elected?

    On the OTHER other hand, what the hell makes the SC Democratic party think that they'd have any chance in a race where they reversed the voters' primary choice? "Hey, I know you guys like Rawl less than Greene, but we hope just as many of you will vote for Rawl in the general if we replace Greene!"

    There are several facts that make this odd.

    1) Greene is a lifelong Republican

    2) Greene is unemployed, and has no money of his own.

    3) Someone gave Greene the 10,000 bucks he needed to register.

    4) Greene ran no campaign ads at all.

    5) The day before the primary, he was 18% in the polls, but won the election with 59% of the vote.

    6) The voting machines were electronic, with no paper trail, and very hackable.

    Add it all up, and you can bet the bank that the sleaze factor is very strong is South Carolina.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's a problem because a committee is considering overturning the results of an election despite no evidence of any wrongdoing. If they want to look into it, that's fine. Overturning the results is a huge step.

    Got a link for this? I haven't seen this anywhere.

    2) Greene is unemployed, and has no money of his own.
    He said he saved up the money.

    3) Someone gave Greene the 10,000 bucks he needed to register.
    Where are you getting this from?


    5) The day before the primary, he was 18% in the polls, but won the election with 59% of the vote.
    Do you have a link for this poll? I haven't heard this.

    6) The voting machines were electronic, with no paper trail, and very hackable.
    Where did you hear that they were "very hackable"? Is there any evidence that they were hacked? Why would anyone hack them?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Any evidence to support this claim? Besides that politicians switch parties every now and then. It doesn't anything fishy is going on.

    2) Greene is unemployed, and has no money of his own.
    You are aware that even poor people save money too?

    3) Someone gave Greene the 10,000 bucks he needed to register.
    Any evidence of this?

    4) Greene ran no campaign ads at all.
    You never voted for someone who ran no campaign? The only thing this indicates is that the voters were sick of big name candidates. With scum bag politicians trying to remove Greene and attack his character and intelligence its no wonder why the voters chose a no name candidate.

    5) The day before the primary, he was 18% in the polls, but won the election with 59% of the vote.
    Any links from credible news sources to prove this?

    6) The voting machines were electronic, with no paper trail, and very hackable.
    Any evidence the machines were hacked? Perhaps this is why libs love electronic voting machines, they can falsely cry foul when ever they do not get their way.

    Add it all up, and you can bet the bank that the sleaze factor is very strong is South Carolina.
    The only sleaze I see is from the sore losers who are pissed their guy didn't win so now they are calling him everything from a republican plant to too stupid to run for office.

    FOXNews.com - South Carolina Pol Questions Dem Senate Candidate's 'Mental Status'
    A South Carolina lawmaker on Sunday suggested that new Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene may be intellectually incapable of participating in the general election race.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
