Rep. Clyburn Wants Probe of SC Senate Candidate

Thursday, 10 Jun 2010 01:02 PM


The No. 3 Democrat in the House of Representatives wants federal authorities to investigate how an unemployed South Carolina veteran won the state's Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn said Thursday that he thinks a coordinated effort is behind Alvin Greene's shocking primary night victory over a former state lawmaker.

Greene has not reported any fundraising in his challenge of Republican U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint. The unemployed military veteran said Thursday there's no need for any investigation but would not say if anyone helped him pay the more than $10,000 filing fee.

Party officials asked Greene to sit out of the race after The Associated Press reported he faces a felony charge, but Greene says he's staying put.
