Radical House Whip James Clyburn claimed the GOP was behind true Democrat Alvin Greene’s primary election win. Clyburn claimed that Alvin Greene was plant.
Law enforcement in South Carolina concluded this week that democrat Alvin Greene had been funded by money he received from state and federal governments, and not by local Republicans.
The State reported, via HotAir:
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.
So will James Clyburn apologize now?
