(Newser) – Hard to believe, but there's some dirt flying around about a politician in South Carolina. This time it's Alvin Greene, the unemployed mystery man who inexplicably won the Democratic primary to run against Senator Jim DeMint in the fall. Greene, 32, faces a felony charge on accusations that he showed pornographic photos to a University of South Carolina student and suggested going to her room, reports AP.
