U.S. Senate nominee Alvin Greene, the surprise winner of the South Carolina Democratic primary, was indicted Friday by a grand jury on obscenity charges. Greene was indicated on one felony count of “disseminating, procuring or promoting obscenity,” as result of the Richland County clerk of courts.
Greene was also indicted on a misdemeanor count of “communicating an obscene message to another person without consent,” as well.
Greene is handling the indictment concerns with a lawyer.
Furthermore, South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Carol Fowler released a statement desiring Greene to resign. The statement linked reads as followed:
“In June, I asked Mr. Greene to withdraw his candidacy because of the charges against him. Following today’s indictments, I repeat that request,” Fowler stated.
Fowler further stated, “It will be impossible for Mr. Greene to address his legal issues and run a statewide campaign. The indictment renews concerns that Mr. Greene cannot represent the values of the Democratic Party or South Carolina voters.”
Well, based on these acquisitions, do you believe he should resign? Or is there a practical solution which will leave everyone satisfied? For continue coverage of this late breaking event, please visit CNN.com.
