Cops ask candidate Greene to leave restaurant meeting

Aug 24, 2010 9:55:00 PM - thestate.com
Longshot U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene was kicked out of a South Carolina restaurant after police say a woman accompanying him got into a fight with county Democratic Party members holding a meeting there, police said Tuesday.

Oconee County Democratic Party officials asked Greene, 32, to speak at their monthly meeting Saturday at Jimmy's Restaurant in Seneca. But that invitation was rescinded after the unemployed military veteran was indicted Aug. 13 on a felony charge of showing pornography to a college student.

On Tuesday, Seneca Police Chief John Covington said that Greene showed up at the meeting anyway and a woman with him got into an argument with people at the restaurant.

Party officials called police, who say the owner of the restaurant kicked out the pair and ended the party's meeting. No charges were filed, and police say no tickets were issued.

According to a police report, the woman who arrived with Greene, Dottie Sue Maggart-Feldman, also accused county party chairwoman Marilyn Hemingway of "being out to get her" but did not elaborate.
