not that he had a chance of winning anyway. Alvin Greene has been indicted on obscenity charges. "Greene was indicted on one felony count of "disseminating, procuring or promoting obscenity," according to the Richland County clerk of courts. He was also indicted on a misdemeanor count of "communicating an obscene message to another person without consent." http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/08/13/greene.indicted/index.html?hpt=T1 Honestly...this guy should have taken the DNC's offer and taken back his filing fee and left the race. He was a big time long shot BEFORE this happened. What do you think? Will this pretty much finish him?

I can see his political campaign posters now: "At least you KNOW I am a crook, what about the other guy?" I can't believe this guy was able to come up with the money to run for office in the first place. Many have questioned if Republicans assisted his campaign. However, in Ohio you can still run for office while being indicted, I am not sure about South Carolina.

yep he can run because he has not been found guilty. As for the money...an investigation was done...and believe it or not...it was his money. He has no chance of winning so he basically just threw away 10K..not smart for an unemployed person in this state. But no one ever said he was smart. The head the of DNC again yesterday asked him to step down. So far he has not answered her...but last time she asked he said no. So I don't exspect him to do it now. The DNC even offered to give him his 10K back if he does drop out. I say he should take the money and run.

The state Demcratic party is offering to him back to him if he will just drop out. They have been offering it to him sence he won the primary. So far he has not taken them up on the offer...I think he should. Not for the DNC sake but his own. He won't win. He is unemployed. There are not any real jobs here right now. We are sitting at over 12% unemployement...it would be in HIS best interest to take the money and drop out.

It's hard to say if this will finish him or make him more endearing to those who already support him. It seems that the indictments are a stretch and this could be seen as intentional political blindsiding.

In all honesty, I think it's a really stupid charge. I'm sure SC isn't the only state with such a law on the books, but I'm betting this is the type of law that's almost NEVER enforced unless the victim is under 18. I mean, this happened in college. Guys show obscene stuff to people all the time in college. The common response is "That's disgusting!" followed by the person looking away and moving on with their life. As far as his campaign goes, he was finished long before this. Even if the other guy won the primaries the odds on beating DeMint were extremely low. His best hope now is to get a book deal, reality show, action figure contract, or something else out of this to supplement his lack of income. His 15 minutes of fame are ending fast so he has to capitalize now.
