Default South Carolina Democrats


Alvin Greene, the unemployed veteran who stunned political observers by winning the Democratic nomination for the Senate in South Carolina, is reportedly facing felony charges and is being asked to step down by his state party. Benjamin Sarlin reports.

What began the day as a quirky news story is taking a darker turn as Alvin Greene, the 32-year-old who won the Democratic Party’s Senate nomination in South Carolina despite raising no money, is reportedly charged with a felony crime. The AP reports Greene was arrested in November and faces unspecified charges carrying a maximum of five years in jail stemming from an alleged incident in which he showed pornographic material to a college student and discussed gaining access to her dorm.

The State Democratic Party chairwoman, Carol Fowler, told The Daily Beast she phoned Greene earlier today to ask him to step down in light of the news.
