Christine O’Donnell Blames Former Campaign Workers For “Thug” Tactics
Former Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell blamed former campaign workers for a report that she is under federal investigation for misuse of funds.
At least two former campaign workers have alleged that she routinely used political contributions to pay personal expenses including her rent as she ran for the Senate three consecutive times, starting in 2006. She acknowledged in a newspaper interview in March that she paid part of her rent with campaign money, arguing that her house doubled as a campaign headquarters.
On Thursday, O’Donnell told NBC’s “Today Show” that she paid the campaign to use the townhouse as her legal residence because her home was vandalized.
On Good Morning America she called it a “thug-politic tactic.” Yesterday she blamed Vice President Joe Biden.
“Given that the king of the Delaware political establishment just so happens to be the vice president of the most liberal presidential administration in U.S. history, it is no surprise that misuse and abuse of the FBI would not be off the table,” she said in the statement.
She also blamed George Soros. The only person exempt from blame seems to be O’Donnell, herself.Click here for reuse options!
