Despite having the chair of the Democratic Party in South Carolina issue a statement calling for Alvin Greene to resign from his U.S. Senate race, the candidate told reporters that he is not quitting, even after his recent indictment on a felony charge of obscenity.
Greene, who surprised everyone by winning the South Carolina’s Democratic primary, was indicted by a grand jury Friday on a felony charge of disseminating, procuring, or promoting obscenity and a misdemeanor charge of communicating obscene materials to a person without consent.
These charges were made public when, police say, Greene displayed obscene photos on a computer to University of South Carolina co-ed Camille McCoy, and then discussed going up to her room.
In a display of erratic behavior in a local television interview last week, Greene began to wail loudly as his brother Jimmy said that Alvin Greene had never talked to him about what happened in the library of the University of South Carolina last fall. Upon further questioning of his brother, Greene began howling and wailing the words “no” and “go.”
When asked if he was staying in the race for good, Alvin Greene responded with a simple, “Yes. yes.”
