Greene says action figures of him would produce S.C. jobs

Jul 7, 2010 9:14:00 PM - thestate.com
LONDON - In a story in The (London) Guardian, S.C. Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Alvin Greene tells a reporter that one way to create jobs in the state would be to have action figures of him produced.

“Another thing we can do for jobs is make toys of me, especially for the holidays,” Greene said in the article. “Little dolls. Me. Like maybe little action dolls. Me in an Army uniform, Air Force uniform, and me in my suit.

“That’s something that would create jobs,” Greene continued. “So you see I think out of the box like that. It’s not something a typical person would bring up.”

Guardian reporter Ed Pilkington concluded that Greene, a 32-year-old unemployed military veteran from Manning, displays “a mix of glaring inadequacy and raw political conviction.”

A spokesman for Republican Sen. Jim DeMint’s re-election campaign declined to comment on the article.
