MANNING, SC (NBC) - In a bizarre interview at his home in Manning, South Carolina, the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate, Alvin Green said he is not quitting the race even after his indictment on a felony charge of obscenity.

Greene, who surprised everyone by winning the Democratic primary then ordered reporter Rad Berky from NBC affiliate WCNC off of his property.

When Berky stopped briefly to talk with Greene's brother Jimmy, Alvin Greene began howling and wailing the words, "no" and "go."

Greene continued to wail loudly as Jimmy Greene said that his brother had never talked to him about what happened in the library of the University of South Carolina last fall.

That is when police say, Greene displayed obscene photos on a computer to coed Camille McCoy, then discussed going up to her room.

A grand jury indicted Greene Friday on a felony charge of disseminating, procuring, or promoting obscenity and a misdemeanor charge of communicating obscene materials to a person without consent.

Greene's brother Jimmy said he believed his brother was innocent.

Asked if he was staying in the race for good, Alvin Greene said, "Yes. yes."

The Chair of the Democratic Party in South Carolina, Carol Fowler, has issued a statement calling for Greene to resign from the race.
