Delaware U.S. Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell threatened to sue a radio station if it didn’t turn over video of an interview she did with them, but later apologized for the heavy-handed tactics.

O’Donnell appeared on WDEL’s “The Rick Jensen Show” Tuesday, during which she fielded several questions from listeners and the host. Upon the conclusion of the interview, an O’Donnell aide demanded video of the interview be turned over to the campaign and destroyed because such videotaping had not been previously approved.

It was then, according to WDEL, that O’Donnell herself threatened to sue the station if it did not comply with the request. WDEL also says it later fielded a phone call from O’Donnell campaign manager Matt Moran, who threatened to “crush” the station with a lawsuit if it did not agree to turn over the tape.

The AP hints at what the O’Donnell campaign may have objected to.

At one point, the video shows O’Donnell snapping her fingers and beckoning an aide after Jensen pressed her on how she would have handled the county budget differently from her Democratic opponent, County Executive Chris Coons.
