Sen. Nominee Was Kicked Out of Army, Has Felony Charge Pending

Remember when I said that the overwhelming presence of one party in a district makes for only opportunistic opponents? Folks said I was just being too harsh. I did mention that the same thing happens in GOP majority districts.

Well, look what happened in South Carolina!

"Alvin Greene , the surprise South Carolina Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, was kicked out of the Army last year and is facing a pending felony charge, according to court records obtained by ABC News."

Greene, who has yet to enter a plea or be indicted, was arrested in November and charged with "disseminating, procuring or promoting obscenity" in Richland County, S.C., and faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

The U.S. Senate candidate was captured on video surveillance Nov. 4 trying to show "obscene photographs from a website" to a female victim on the University of South Carolina campus and go to her room without her consent, according to the affidavit. "

He won the primary to face Jim DeMint. The Democrats are embarrassed, I guess.

**Beau,

you are surprised that all men fail?

Put your hope in Jesus Christ & Him alone!**

Walt Disney was kicked out of the Marine Corps with a dishonorable discharge. :shrug:

Yeppers!! He was drafted…Probably, one of the best known conscientious objectors. He had made a boyhood promise of never killing another animal after killing a squirrel - rabbit … I forget ]. The war department asked him to use his skills to produce war shorts…like the Uncle Sam - war bonds drives.
