Christine O’Donnell Has The Feds On Her Ass

Former U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell of Delaware has gotten herself into some trouble. This time it’s not her mouth or her perceived witchcraft or radical views on masturbation that may do her in.
Federal investigators are looking into the way Ms. O’Donnell spent some of her campaign funds from the Election 2010 cycle. We reported in October that more than a few “side-eyes” were thrown at Chrissy because she treated her campaign like it was a Chase Bank ATM. That didn’t sit well AT ALL with the Federal Election Commission or law enforcement authorities.
The Center for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) got the investigation started when they filed a complaint in September. They accused O’Donnell of improperly spending donor money and within a month she actually admitted to it. She said she used some campaign money to pay the rent on her townhouse since it doubled as her campaign headquarters. But, that’s not allowed by election authorities.
Ms. O’Donnell didn’t seem to think that “the man” would come after her ass looking for a detailed and accurate accounting of the $7.3 million she raised for her failed campaign. Well, he did. He also sent two federal prosecutors and two FBI agents to do a little digging on Christine the Bad Witch.
The case hasn’t been sent to a grand jury just yet. We’ll see how this goes, though. If I were her, I’d keep statements like this month’s rant about the unemployed to a minimum. The prosecutors might take the pot she pisses in and foreclose on the window she throws it out of it.
Like Mama always said, “Those renting glass houses shouldn’t throw unpaid-for stones….”
