Democratic Party Senate nominee Alvin Greene has offered a very original solution to the unemployment problem in America: Build Alvin Greene action figures. (CLICK HERE FOR MORE)
Military records show Greene served in the Air National Guard from 1995 to 2002 before he was discharged with permission to enlist in another military branch. His records are blank until July 2006, when he re-enlisted in the Army National Guard. After a year, Greene joined the U.S. Army, and was discharged in August."Another thing we can do for jobs is make toys of me, especially for the holidays. Little dolls. Me. Like maybe little action dolls. Me in an army uniform, air force uniform, and me in my suit. They can make toys of me and my vehicle, especially for the holidays and Christmas for the kids. That's something that would create jobs. So you see I think out of the box like that. It's not something a typical person would bring up. That's something that could happen, that makes sense. It's not a joke."
As for his campaign idea, Greene says he was open to discussions with major toy companies but has not been approached by any. "If they contact me, I would be willing," Greene said. "I'm a true American hero, instead of somebody just fictitious."
One question remains: Should the Alvin Greene, American hero, action figures be made in the US or in China, where all of the other action figures are currently manufactured?
As Greene moves forward toward the election in November, he remains hopeful that South Carolina voters will advance him over his opponent, incumbent Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC).
Greene still faces a trial for allegations of sexual misconduct and stalking. A conviction will not impact his eligibility for the US Senate.
