COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – A new t-shirt poking fun at a series of gaffes by South Carolina public figures is being worn by the state’s unlikely long shot democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene.

Greene appeared Monday at a Rotary Club event sporting a white shirt featuring a blue outline of the state with the words, “South Carolina: We don’t make these things up!”

Rotary Club President Owen Clary designed the shirt after pondering events that have landed South Carolina in the news over the past year and a half. That chronology includes Gov. Mark Sanford’s revelation of an affair with a woman in Argentina and U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson saying “you lie” during a Presidential address to Congress. It also includes Greene’s surprising primary victory.
