Watchdog: O'Donnell 'Clearly a Criminal'
One of my favorite witches, Christine O’Donnell, just can't seem to stay out of the news. I guess she firmly believes that all press is good press.
Nonpartisan watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington says that Christine O’Donnell “is clearly a criminal, and like any crook she should be prosecuted."
Damn those are some strong words. And what did the non-masturbating, puritanical, single-girl do? According to two complaints, it is alleged the Republican Senate candidate misused $20,000 in campaign funds. “Ms. O'Donnell has spent years embezzling money from her campaign to cover her personal expenses,” the group says.
Girl has to got to eat right?
CREW is seeking a Federal Election Commission audit of O’Donnell’s campaign expenditures, and wants the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office to begin a criminal investigation. The group’s claims are based on an affidavit from an ex-O’Donnell aide, David Keegan, saying O’Donnell used campaign money to pay her rent for two months in 2009 as well as buy food and gas.
For her part, O’Donnell reported that her income between March 2009 and June 2010 was only $5,800. She has not directly addressed reports of her many financial problems, aside from saying that she fell on “hard times.”
She needs to teach financial management classes if she can live on $5,800 a year and run for Senate.
"We're about right and wrong and not about black or white, Republican or Democrat," she said. "And it is flat-out wrong for a candidate for the U.S. Senate to be stealing her campaign funds and be using them for personal use."
Maybe Christine can brew up a good spell in her cauldron and make all of this go away.
