More drama for Alvin Greene, who rocketed from obscurity to become South Carolina's Democratic Senate nominee. Greene's former campaign manager now accuses the candidate of using racial and anti-gay slurs, reports Myrtle Beach's WMBF-TV.
Alvin Greene is denying using the words. Now former campaign aide Dottie Sue Maggart-Feldmen accused Greene of using the slurs in a voice mail to the York County man she says Greene was talking about. The message was left for local Democratic activist Will Bigger, who organized a forum in York Monday night in which Greene spoke and answered questions. In the message, which was obtained by WBTV news partner CN2, Dottie Sue tells Bigger she has resigned from the Greene campaign. She says on the way back from the forum in York Greene called Bigger a 'fat white f-----.' She also says he called Bigger anti-white slurs. 'That's not true,' Greene told WBTV by phone from his home in Manning, South Carolina, on Wednesday night. 'She is a troublemaker, and she is not with my campaign.' Bigger said he's not sure who he believes, but he says the whole thing is disappointing."
Also on the campaign trail: Greene was accused of showing pornography to a college student and recently indicted by a grand jury on obscenity charges. South Carolina's Jim Clyburn, the No. 3-ranking Democrat in the U.S. House, says he will not support and not vote for his party's nominee for the Senate.
