This is good news. Vic Rawl has filed a formal protest of the election results in South Carolina that elevated an unknown unemployed veteran to primary frontrunner.

Via MSNBC:

Rawl says experts who have analyzed the data say they've noticed irregularities in the vote totals. He planned an afternoon news conference in Charleston.

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn says he thinks someone put Greene up as a shell candidate to embarrass the Democratic Party. But Greene insists he saved for two years to pay the $10,000 filing fee.

I hope the DOJ and FBI is investigating the voting machines, too. Rawl will have a high barrier to climb, since the ES&S voting machines do not save an audit trail.
