Clyburn Says Greene Was a "Plant"

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) called for an investigation into the circumstances that led to Alvin Greene (D) to win the Democratic U.S. Senate primary in South Carolina, The Hill reports.

Said Clyburn: "There were some real shenanigans going on in the South Carolina primary. I don't know if he was a Republican plant; he was someone's plant."

John Cook: "The evidence is mounting that Alvin Greene, the mysterious unemployed veteran and accused sex offender who shocked South Carolina Tuesday night by winning the Democratic Senate primary, was put up to the candidacy in some sort of political skullduggery."

Meanwhile, The Root has an interview with Greene.
