Does Being Greene Require Planting?

by Dick Mac

Alvin Greene won the Democratic primary for a U.S. Senate seat from South Carolina.

He says he used his own funds to run his campaign.

Until his decisive victory, he was completely unknown.

He has no visible means of support, lives with his elderly mother, and when he was arrested recently he signed a document acknowledging that he was indigent, and required the services of a public defender.

He had no advertising, no noticeable campaign, no campaign committee. His victory boggles the minds of many.

Democratic Party activists and elected officials are suggesting that he is a plant. They believe that Republican Party operatives found him, knew they could destroy him in the general election, and funded his campaign. Is it sour grapes about their mainstream candidate losing, or is there any truth to that notion?

He is a lifelong Democrat, and a man of few words. In this video, a very gentle Keith Olberman interviews the candidate:
