Alvin Greene did an interview with the “Guardian” , and I must say, Ed Pilkington did a much better job of getting more of the real Alvin than anyone else has done. Still Ed clamed to be as baffled leaving Alvin’s home in South Carolina after the interview, as he was when he arrived. It’s a good article and worth a read.
Alvin’s plan for creating new jobs?
"Another thing we can do for jobs is make toys of me, especially for the holidays. Little dolls. Me. Like maybe little action dolls. Me in an army uniform, air force uniform, and me in my suit. They can make toys of me and my vehicle, especially for the holidays and Christmas for the kids. That's something that would create jobs. So you see I think out of the box like that. It's not something a typical person would bring up. That's something that could happen, that makes sense. It's not a joke."
Well, he’s right it’s not something a typical candidate would come up with.
Apparently South Carolina State Law Enforcement is conducting a probe on Alvin and intends to try and use a new law that will allow them to subpoena his financial records. They seem very interested in exactly how he came up with the $10,400 filing fee in March to get his name on the ticket, when last November he was given a court appointed attorney when he was charged with showing internet porn to a college student.
He claims to have saved that money for two years while still in the army. But if that’s the case and he was in possession of those funds last November, there is no way he could have qualified for a public defender. Looks like either way something isn’t right there.
Alvin’s good news is that he finally has his own Campaign Website” . Not that it says much either, but it does have a place to make donations and has a nice picture of Alvin wearing his suit on his “About Greene” page.
