UPDATE - oh, it gets better... it turns out that huge voting irregularities may be responsible for Greene's victory. Do read the whole thing.
original post, 6/11/10 - Via Ace of Spades, an interesting snippet from the Washington Post about the recent Democratic primary for the US Senate in South Carolina.
Seems that a fellow named Alvin Greene came from nowhere to take his party's nomination, despite not campaigning a lick and barely affording the filing fee. Lots of speculation that he's a GOP plant. (If that were the case, why not actually campaign him and stuff? How did they possibly expect that filing alone was going to get jack-sprat done?)
Anyway, the WaPo quotes the head of the national Democratic Senate Campaign Committee on the situation... one Bob Menendez (D-NJ).
You know, if Greene winds up quitting for his alleged shenanigans, then South Carolina could always do what New Jersey did when it was their Senate race - cram a new guy into the general election well past the lawful filing deadline. I wonder if Menendez could advise them in any way about anything like that?
