AP odd news

Senate action figures
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Alvin Greene action figures are here — thanks to a South Carolina minor league baseball team.
The Charleston RiverDogs will give out statues of the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate at Saturday’s game. Greene, who shocked the political establishment by winning the primary without campaigning, has suggested manufacturing action figures of himself could spur economic growth in a state with chronically high unemployment.

The statues are actually male Statue of Liberty figures the team planned to give away as a different promotion based on a Georgia group’s plan to build a mate for New York’s Lady Liberty on the South Carolina coast. But after hearing Greene’s idea, the RiverDogs decided to put a picture of his face on the statues instead.

“Who better epitomizes the American dream that anything is possible than Mr. Greene?” said RiverDogs General Manager Dave Echols.

Greene said Thursday the team didn’t talk to him before creating the promotion, but he doesn’t mind.
