Alvin Greene to Throw his Hat in the Ring Again

The State reports that Alvin Greene apparently is looking for an extension of his fifteen minutes:Greene returns to politics:

Former Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Alvin Greene is running for office again, this time an open S.C. House seat in Clarendon County.

Greene, an unemployed U.S. Army veteran who faces criminal obscenity charges, is one of three Democrats running to fill the District 64 vacancy created by the death of state Rep. Cathy Harvin.

Based on Greene’s bizarre campaign for Senate, one figures that the outcome here will be no different. However, running for the state legislature is a bit more realistic than challenging Jm DeMint for the US Senate.
