First, Alvin Greene (whom MoJo‘s Suzy Khimm interviewed last night), shocked political observers by seemingly coming out of nowhere to win South Carolina’s Democratic Senate primary. Now the unemployed vet has another surprise in store. Turns out, he’s presently facing a felony rap for an incident that involved Internet porn and a University of South Carolina co-ed. Via the AP:

Court records show 32-year-old Alvin Greene was arrested in November and charged with showing obscene Internet photos to a University of South Carolina student. The felony charge carries up to five years in prison.

Greene said he had no comment when asked about the charge Wednesday and hung up on a reporter. The unemployed veteran posted bond after his arrest. He has yet to enter a plea or be indicted.

Records indicate Greene showed photos to a woman and talked about going to her room at a university dorm.
