U.S. Rep. Clyburn: Election & Voting Machine Fraud Greene Win!

During a segment on MSNBC's Morning Joe, United States Rep. James Clyburn was asked pointblank what he believed may have been done in the Alvin Greene Democrat Party Primary election to cause such an overwhelming win of a virtual unknown.

Clyburn agreed with the wording of the questions, responding he believed somebody was involved in paying Greene to run in the election, and he agreed when asked if voting machines were tampered with.

Yes, he said, he didn't know if it was Democrats or Republicans, somebody paid Greene and voting machines were tampered with...

Apparently, though Rep. Clyburn didn't specify who he believes may have paid Greene to run on Morning Joe, Clyburn wants a probe of the win and has indicated his belief in a conspiracy involving three candidates for the Democratic Primary in S.C...

Viewpoint challenges claims Greene a 'Republican' plant
...Um. Here's the thing. Very few people, beyond Greene, his family and his friends, knew who he was or that he was even in the race (a claim that you can make about Rawl himself). And the masses certainly didn't know that he was black. So the plant argument, at least the one that we are most familiar with in South Carolina politics, just doesn't apply. Greene's race is irrelevant.

Even more damning, the reasons for why a secretive Republican cabal would pay Greene to run against Rawl simply aren't there. Rawl posed no challenge to U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint. None. In 2010, the era of the Tea Party, DeMint is untouchable.

And not only did DeMint have near-universal adoration on his side when it comes to Republican Party members, he also had a war chest that was substantially larger than Rawl's: $3.5 million to a little bit under $200,000.

As I've said it before, Rawl was defeated by money and marketing. He didn't have the money to compete.

Ask yourself this: Do you remember seeing a Rawl campaign sign? Do you remember seeing Rawl on the nightly news? Do you remember seeing anybody ever covering his campaign?


Rawl was as much of an non-entity as Greene. And Greene just won the luck of the draw.

And for those of you, like U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, who are unable to believe that Greene won because of random luck, may I suggest you pick up a copy of The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives Is Wrong. Mathematics don't lie.
