Who Is Alvin Greene? Winner of SC Democrat Senate Race is virtual unknown

June 9, 2010 Politisite 0

South Carolina Voters and News sources from around the state and country are asking,”who is Alvin Greene”? Greene won against an established candidate, Vic Rawl, who was favored to win the race.
What we know, Greene is an Unemployed Army Veteran who had no money (except the filing fee of $10, 500), no website, and very few photos. We didn’t even know where his campaign stumps were.
Photos were so scarce that the Huffington Post had a photo with a Question Mark and asked if anyone had one. Took til 3 A.M. for a photo to be sent to our news email. Twitter was ablaze with conspiracy theorists who speculated that Greene was a GOP plant. When interviewed Greene denied he was approached by either party to run.
