Last week’s shocking upset in South Carolina is still kicking, and members of the state's Democratic Party voted on Thursday to keep controversial candidate Alvin Greene. When Alvin Greene (D) beat former state Rep. Vic Rawl (D), 59 percent to 41 percent in the state primary for Senate, Rawl protested to the state’s Democratic Party executive committee. In a 5-1 vote, the party's executive committee voted down Vic Rawl, who protested the results and attempted to get a new Senate primary. Rawl conceded, saying he wouldn’t appeal. The committee may have been decisive, but several questions remain regarding Greene’s candidacy. He is an unemployed veteran but managed to pay the $10,440 candidate filing fee, and then there’s that felony obscenity charge. Some watchdogs have asked for an investigation into those issues, as well as some problems with voting machines.
