He's baaaccckkkk!!! COLUMBIA, S.C. — Alvin Greene, the unemployed Army veteran who suggested during his failed U.S. Senate bid that making action figures of himself would help create jobs, is running for office again. Greene paid the $165 filing fee on Christmas Eve to run in a special election for a South Carolina House seat made vacant by the death this month of Rep. Cathy Harvin. Cal Land, the chairman of the Clarendon County Democratic Party, said Greene entered the race five minutes after the filing period opened. A primary will be held Feb. 15 with the special election set for April 5. Greene said Monday he would wait to see who else filed before commenting on the race. He was handily defeated in November by incumbent U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/12/27/alvin-greene-political-comeback_n_801793.html He sure didn't waste any time, did he? He entered five minutes after the filing period opened - sounds like he means business this time, doesn't he...lol? Hey, who knows, he handily won his primary, maybe he'll actually win this special election since they're usually notorious for low turnouts. Then we'll getting the production going on his action figures and all will be well with the economy! Annie

I was so happy to see this the other day! And they say politics is boring. Greene is the gift that keeps on giving. I figure his action figures should be ready by my birthday, guess what I am asking for?

He is also saying he is thinking of running in the next presidential election on the republican ticket. LOL LOL LOL Face it...this guy is a media **ore. He is looking to extend his 15 minutes. He was an absolute joke in his last election and he still has those felonies hanging over his head.

He definately would make the debates interesting. But I would take DeMint over Greene. That man is scarey crazy. Worse than the ones we already have in washington. He would just take thing to a whole new level of disfuctional. LOL

...Hi again annie, Well, I would guess that the man has picked up a bug and is going to do a Christine O'Donnell and be a perpetual candidate, pick up money for expenses and living by running for political office. I can see another possible investigation about campaign money. People run for office and keep what's left in their war chest and supposedly give it to other candidates. He may see it as a game, who knows? Why anyone would vote for him when he doesn't or can't express himself very well I don't know either. Strange dude. Then again I remember W. "o) It's 2011. Cheers

Happy New Year and GOOD RIDDANCE to 2010! The only reason I could think of to vote for him this past November was that he was running against Jim DeMented...lol! Annie

He's a lot of fun, isn't he? The guy's got every right to run if he wants to, as long as he can keep paying the filing fees. Even if he never wins anything ever again and fades from view, though, he's still going to be one of the most famous losers in the history of politics. Alvin Greene has campaigned his way into history.

You're right, he's campaigned his way into history without hardly campaigning at all! The filing fees are about all he's ever spent, too, aren't they? His interview with Lawrence O'Donnell when all he kept saying was "DeMint started the recession" was the best. Annie
