Alvin Greene Asked to Withdraw Over Felony Porn Charge

June 9, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Well, this strange tale out of the dreck that is South Carolina politics, is getting curiouser and curiouser. Alvin Greene, the unemployed Army vet who won the Democratic senatorial primary, with no fundraising, no campaign website and zero campaign appearances, is facing an Internet porn felony charge. And the state Party chairwoman has demanded that Greene withdraw from the race.

Since, his surprising victory over establishment Democratic candidate Vic Rawl, attributed to alphabet voting by constituents unfamiliar with either candidate, the AP reported that Greene was arrested in November for displaying porn over the Internet. “Court records show 32-year-old Alvin Greene was arrested in November and charged with showing obscene Internet photos to a University of South Carolina student.”

As reported by The Hill, Carol Fowler, chairwoman of the South Carolina Democratic Party asked Greene to step down:

“Today I spoke with Alvin Greene, the presumptive Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate, and asked him to withdraw from the race,” Carol Fowler, chairwoman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, said in a statement. […]

Fowler said she didn’t take her decision “lightly.” “I believe strongly that the Democratic voters of this state have the right to select our nominee,” she said. “But this new information about Mr. Greene has would certainly have affected the decisions of many of those voters.”

And so, this may be the end of Greene’s odd campaign, that has been questioned as a GOP generated place-marker stunt.

(Update: Not so fast. Greene told an AP reporter that he is staying in the race. “The people have spoken. We need to be pro-South Carolina, not anti-Greene,” said Greene outside of his parent’s home this evening. Greene did not comment on his pending porn felony charge.

    One ultimately wonders should we be offended with Mr Greene’s behavior or somehow perversely delighted that a rogue like him can now end up as our next senator? Shouldn’t you visit South Carolina soon?

    Pete:

    Greene’s behavior is fairly offensive (and he may be a bit socially retarded for doing it), but I wish someone explain how this is a felony. Last time I’ve checked, 1) porn is legal, 2) the student is an adult. Shouldn’t he be instead getting charged with some misdemeanor punishable by a $1,000 fine, probation plus some community service.
