More Weirdness


ABC News has an interview up with Alvin Greene, the mystery Senate candidate from South Carolina. And well, it’s just weird. I can’t say that it really gives me any clearer sense of what the hell is going on here than I had before I watched it.

But there is one point I thought I’d mention. In the video the interviewer is walking around the house with Greene. And Greene is showing him different memorabilia and pictures of himself as a kid. And the interviewer presses Greene, who says he’s a veteran, about whether he can show him any pictures of himself in uniform.

Greene sort of dodges the question and hems and haws. And it’s pretty clear that the implication of the editing is that maybe the whole military service part of Greene’s bio is made up. At this point, there’s not much I won’t believe with this story. But here’s the thing, as long as you’re keeping score at home: our Justin Elliott spent the afternoon trying to figure out what the hell was going on with this guy. And one thing Justin was able to confirm is that Greene did serve in the Air Force for three years.

See the interview after the jump.
