Alvin Greene is not only the Democratic Candidate for United States Senate, he also has aspirations for a greater calling. Greene told Time Magazine, “I am also the best person to be Time magazine’s Man of the Year.”
Since the South Carolina Democratic primary for the Senate took place earlier this month, it seemed like the only person not talking about Alvin Greene… was Alvin Greene. But Greene broke his silence to Time magazine reporter Michael Scherer in an interview released today.
“I am the best candidate for the United States Senate in South Carolina,” Greene told Scherer. “And I am also the best person to be Time magazine’s Man of the Year.”
Greene also discussed what he hopes to accomplish in his campaign. He said that he wants to focus on three things: jobs, education and “justice in the judicial system.” And according to Time, he wants to “curtail long jail sentences, for first-time, non violent crimes.”
He continued, “My campaign slogan is ‘Let’s Get South Carolina Back to Work.”
Since his primary election win last week, many have attempted to explain how Greene, an unemployed military veteran who is facing charges of exposing a student to explicit images, managed to defeat Vic Rawl, who was backed by the Democratic Party establishment.
Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) accused Greene of being a plant and asked the U.S. Attorney General to conduct an investigation.
