Lawrence Taylor to Speak at Alvin Greene Rally (Satire)

Sam FogelgarenCorrespondent IAugust 14, 2010

Lawrence Taylor, the former New York Giants hall-of-fame linebacker, is set to speak at a campaign rally for Democratic Nominee for the South Carolina U.S. Senate Seat, Alvin Greene. 

Greene, a political unknown before his shocking victory in the primaries this past June, said that Taylor's support is a huge boost to the campaign.

"Having someone like LT, someone that's so responsible and so committed to their community, it's such an amazing asset," said Greene. 

"While I really don't know the guy that well, I see that we both have a common bond. We both share a commitment to making this country great," said Taylor. 

While that common bond could mean their commitment to America, it could also refer to the sexual harassment charges both men face. Taylor was charged with rape this past may, and Greene was indicted by a grand jury this past week of obscenity charges.

Though one would think the rally would draw a lot of people, Greene has not put out any commercials or pieces of literature about the rally.
