Greene had legitimate sources for South Carolina election fees

• McClatchy News
 Alvin Greene, the obscure jobless man whose come-from-nowhere victory in the June Democratic primary for U.S. Senate created a national furor, had legitimate sources of income to finance his $10,400 primary entry fee, law enforcement sources said Friday.

He will not face criminal deception charges, according to SLED, for requesting a taxpayer funded attorney in a still pending criminal case against him. State law enforcement investigated Greene’s finances after questions were raised about how he could qualify for indigent defense and still afford the U.S. Senate filing fee.
