-- -- situation surrounding the South Carolina democratic senate primary is certainly drawing more curious by the day Democrats are putting pressure on the guy you see there Alvin Greene to battle out of the race this fall.
Against the Republican senator Jim -- A lot of people are questioning how green who's an unemployed that facing criminal charges one in the first place.
He had a campaign infrastructure he'd be a well funded opponent quite handily.
The house majority whip and South Carolina congressman Jim -- -- has a couple of theories.
Involving one of them involve the voting machines take a listen he was on fox -- this morning.
These machines don't have a paper trail.
These machines are back to being hacked into by a magnet.
Oh in the where.
The bad news that it from afar protected the resilience we -- know that so why would we use of these decisions.
That someone planted this young man in this campaign and has been went out to carry out -- speed of hacking into the ensure that you win.
So what -- South Carolina Republicans have to say about this Kate Dawson is former chair of the Republican Party and that's vacate that good to see a couple of different theories actually in that one sound -- Let's start with first.
What your thoughts are on what you think went on here.
But Jane again let's unpack some of the things that happened and -- the a circus like atmosphere here in South Carolina and like oil politics.
But congressman -- and is now.
Using the weakest argument that there was something wrong with the voting machines.
I would contend that he had a 50000.
To 5000 vote in his congressional district so I guess there was nothing wrong with the voting machines -- Second of all.
-- grain it there is a question of where he found 101400.
Dollars and my advice to the Democrat party would be to go live within their party and see who was trying to.
Cause mischief in their primary but with that being said.
Alvin Greene a one over a 100000.
Votes and was overwhelmingly elected by Democrats in South Carolina and you can step back to the 101000 -- dollar filing fee you can argue about voting machines in one race.
But I would tell you there is an embarrassment and a circus type atmosphere in the Democrat party where they're gonna -- supplant the will of the voters and have a meeting with their state executive committee and try to kick mr.
green off the ballot but -- -- Supposedly legal problems at its heart -- you don't think anything was amiss here.
I just -- that that -- embarrassed that they nominate somebody it don't I can win and I'll be frank with you they don't have anybody that can be Vietnamese.
-- argument he has.
They want to kick Alvin -- all because he has up charges against him but still.
I think it's a double edged sword -- Jane they're getting ready to tell a 100000 something Democrat voters that they made a mistake.
And try to blame it on the voting machines I guess that car -- wants to go ahead and throw his 50000 votes out.
Also you know several people have said that this is a as he mentioned their plants involved and they said it's a plant from the Republican Party ID are you denying that the Republicans were involved in any part what's your take on that.
I can -- to not know -- no Republicans that really had a concern with who the Democrats for women nominate for the US senate against him the -- With four million dollars in the bank -- 70% approval rating.
And probably an overwhelming electoral victory what I will say -- that that their own to solve them with a 101400 dollars but they might not look within their party.
And see exactly who want to create this type of mischief but if it laughing is that there because -- -- more of what the motive be for a Democrat doing this within their own party just make their own party look bad.
Let you know today if you come to South Carolina and watch electoral politics and primaries there -- thought -- odd things and right now certainly there was somebody named brawl who has run that nobody really movement and Alvin Greene who nobody knew.
And they had a primary but it it.
I found it interesting that nobody cried foul when this person paid is filing -- nobody -- balance of all the sudden the next day they wake up and they got a nominee.
Who knew who they deem as embarrassing.
That they have voted putting and I find it you know that -- to point fingers and trying to have a a trial here for somebody who won the vote because the political bosses just aren't happy from the White House all the way down to -- employ.
I tell you will it literally have less than fifteen seconds so it does have to be yes or no answer but it do you think that there is anything amiss in the process whether it was the voting machines -- it was a plant.
Do these numbers not add up for you yes or -- was.
-- problem here.
I didn't numbers added up and I thank the both -- the 101400.
-- somebody my fans to Wear that Wear Alvin Greene got that but.
Besides that the voters have spoken and they have himself the nominee we will see this is all going to be considered this week -- we'll -- as it Democrats move forward with this what happens Kate Dawson thanks for your time.
