This is NOT a joke. He is the properly elected Democrat nominee for US senate.
Unemployed.
Lives with his parents.
Indicted on felony obscenity charges (his attorneys claim it was just flirting) for showing a female college student porn on his phone.

Please it is just another addition to the embarrassment that is South Carolina politics.

And before any one says OMG you hate the South. My parents live in that hellish state and I grew up there for 10 years.

Could We have a demographic breakdown on those currently registered as Democrats in So.Carolina (??) He won the Primary for real down to earth simple reasons. The same outlook prevailed that allowed Obama to rack up Convention delegates from States he would NEVER carry in a General Election.

Number One the link is an arduous process to compile. More importantly the turnout I more than suspect was tilted a bit.

S.C. Voting Machines Banned in Other States

Local Activist Says Machines Have a History of Problems

BY MINDY LUCAS

The S.C. Election Commission says it will continue using touch-screen voting machines even though the machines have come under fire recently in other states.

South Carolina began using touch-screen voting machines in 2004.

Both Ohio and Colorado have taken steps to ban the iVotronic — the same machine South Carolina uses — after a recent review by Ohio’s top election officials found that the machines have “critical security vulnerabilities.”

In a report published Dec. 14, researchers found that the machines were susceptible to hacking and could be corrupted with a magnet or handheld electronic device such as a Palm Treo “smartphone.”

S.C. Election Commission spokesman Chris Whitmire says the commission has reviewed the Ohio report but found “nothing surprising, alarming or new in it.”

“The report identifies known theoretical voting system vulnerabilities,” Whitmire says, adding that scenarios of someone using a device to change another person’s vote are highly unlikely in a real election. And, he says, he does not foresee a change in the state’s voting system anytime soon. “We are confident in the accuracy and security of South Carolina’s voting system.”

Al Sharpton did well in So.Carolina in the 2004 Primary. Do you think that indicates anything ????

My hatred of South Carolina grew from the people I knew. I just enjoy being able to make fun of the state and then when people get bitchy about it I just bust out my SC license and draft card.
