Rep. James Clyburn emphatically claimed that Alvin Greene was a GOP “plant” and said someone gave Greene the $10,000 filing fee, but this news might strike down that theory:

Alvin Greene, the obscure jobless man whose come-from-nowhere victory in the June Democratic primary for U.S. Senate created a national furor, had legitimate sources of income to pay his $10,400 primary entry fee, law enforcement sources said Friday.

He will not, according to SLED, face criminal deception charges for requesting a taxpayer funded attorney in a still pending criminal case against him.

State law enforcement officials wrapped up an investigation of Greene’s finances after questions were raised about how he could qualify for indigent defense and afford to pay more than $10,000 to seek the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.

Greene’s surprise June 8 upset victory over former circuit judge Vic Rawl initially caused many to speculate Republican operatives had secretly bankrolled Greene’s primary entry fee to sabotage the primary. Rawl’s defeat left Greene the Democratic challenger to U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C.

Sorry, Dems — he stays on the ticket! Actually, when it comes to the issue of job creation, Greene seems to have much more common-sense ideas than most Democrats — which is probably why they don’t like him.

And now, just because it’s funny, here’s Keith Olbermann trying to inverview Greene last month:

    Why did they bother trying to take down a black man when a white man wouldn't have won anyhow?

    Actually, blacks in today’s America do trust whites of the Democratic party to look out for them because for many generations that's what they’ve been told the party is doing.

    The slave owners of the past have morphed into today’s Democratic party. Gone are the steel chains around the necks, waists, wrists, and ankles.

    Those chains have morphed too, into chains made of dollar bags and dollar signs and are now connected to the pocket books, wallets and veins. And chains made of words. Words like, “redistribution”, “reparations”, “food stamps”, “free, free, free”, et al.

    Don’t let anyone kid you, black’s are still in chains in 21st century America. The sad thing is they put one of their own into Washington to lead the white Democrats who are leading the chain gangs.
