Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) says Republicans were behind the three ‘mystery’ candidates down in South Carolina last week — including uber-mystery candidate Alvin Greene. And in at least one of those cases he seems to be right.
So how exactly did Preston Grisham, a longtime campaign operative for Rep. Joe “You Lie!” Wilson (R-SC), come to work for the guy running against Clyburn in his Democratic primary? Christina Bellantoni got him on the phone to hear his story. “It wasn’t my idea to work for him as any way to raise mischief, it was just to help a level-headed, good guy,” Grisham tells TPM.
