Explaining Alvin Greene

Rep. Jim Clyburn has called for an investigation into Greene’s win, saying he has seen evidence of tampering in a number of races across the state. Jensen disagrees.

“Ultimately, what we’re concluding is it was pretty much completely random who was going to win given that no voters had heard of either of the candidates,” he said.
