One potential red flag: A significant difference between the results of absentee and election day ballots. According to Ludwig, of the state’s 46 counties, half have a disparity of greater than 10 percentage points between the absentee and election day ballots. “The election day ballots all favor Mr. Greene. We don’t know what it means,” Ludwig said in an interview. “We did significantly better on absentees than Election Day, which is according to the mathematicians, quite significant. The other reason is, it didn’t happen in any other races on the ballot.” In Lancaster County, Rawl won absentee ballots over Greene by a staggering 84 percent to 16 percent margin; but Greene easily led among Election Day voters by 17 percentage points. In Spartanburg County, Ludwig said there are 25 precincts in which Greene received more votes than were actually cast and 50 other precincts where votes appeared to be missing from the final count. “In only two of 88 precincts, do the number of votes Greene got plus the number we got equal the total cast,” Ludwig said. Greene also racked up a 75 percent or greater margin in one-seventh of all precincts statewide, a mark that Ludwig notes is even difficult for an incumbent to reach.

Just got to watch the video of Olbermann (sp) and gimme a break Clyburn.
"Somebody gave him that 10,000 and he should be investigated." How about we investigate the millions that have gone to people just like him? Try to discredit the low man on the totem pole because he doesn't fit his agenda? Ugh. This government is made off of politicians getting funding out the wazoo and all of a sudden it's a problem because Clyburn doesn't like the guy?

I think this is a story where it is what it is. And if I was Jim Demint I wouldn't think thius is a shoe in victory either. Knowing how are media is and how everybody wants the underdog to win mentality. I don;t know stranger things have happened.
