Rep. Jim Clyburn Not Voting For Black Man Al Greene

Roddie Burris at The State, reports U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, the No. 3-ranking Democrat in the U.S. House, said Wednesday he will not support his party's nominee for the U.S. Senate, Alvin Greene, when he goes into the voting booth Nov. 2.

"No, I'm not going to vote for Mr. Greene," Clyburn said in answer to reporters' questions in Columbia. "Look, I have three daughters and a granddaughter. I think it would be an insult to them, if I did that."

Clyburn said it comes down to the charges that Greene faces.

A Richland County grand jury has indicted Greene on a felony charge of disseminating, procuring or promoting obscenity, and a misdemeanor charge of communicating obscene materials to a person without consent. The charges came after Greene was arrested in November on charges of showing obscene photographs to a female student in a computer lab at the University of South Carolina.
