      Controversial figure creates Greene's campaign platform

      COLUMBIA (WACH) -- U.S. Senate Candidate Alvin Greene now has a campaign platform.

      Greene is campaigning based on the slogan, "Keep South Carolinians in their homes and give them jobs."

      The message is crafted by the Warren Group, a new firm started by activist Donna Warren.

      Warren tells the Free Times Newspaper her group is helping Greene's campaign for free.

      Warren is no stranger to controversy. She once sued the CIA for allowing crack cocaine to infest her South Central Los Angeles neighborhood.
