O’Donnell Denies Misuse Of Campaign Funds

January 3, 2011 by  

O'Donnell denies misuse of campaign fundsTea Party darling Christine O'Donnell has denied allegations that she misused campaign funds during her bid for the United States Senate.

O'Donnell is defending herself amidst reports that Federal investigators are conducting a probe into her past spending. On Dec. 29, The Associated Press (AP) reported that two FBI agents and two Federal prosecutors have been assigned to the case, which stems from accusations that O'Donnell used campaign funds to pay for personal expenses.

In an interview with FOX News, O'Donnell said that she never misappropriated campaign funds, and she added that the criminal investigation was just another attempt to discredit the Tea Party movement.

"It appears that this is just the same thug tactics that they've been using for months to discredit this anti-establishment movement," O'Donnell told the news provider.

The U.S. Attorney General's office in Delaware has confirmed that it is looking into complaints that were made by watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which alleged that O'Donnell had misused funds.

During an interview on ABC's Good Morning America on Dec. 30, O'Donnell called the Federal investigation a "thug politic tactic." She also claimed that the AP was tipped off about the probe before her lawyer or anyone in her team was notified. She added that the woman who spearheaded the CREW complaint is a former staffer for Vice President Joe Biden and is "so far to the left that she's to the left of most leftists."

    just more of what the legal system did to Sarah Palin! lies and exaggerations to discourage her and drive her out of politics because she is some kind of threat to the powers that be!

      She’s an air head and couldn’t get elected dog catcher.
      Is she guilty as charged? That’s what courts are for.

      • Sue

        You must be a liberal – and why, oh why, do liberals resort to name-calling and decline to talk issues and/or show proof they know what they are talking about…maybe because they can’t?

        • Kinetic1

          Sue, are you new to this sight? The “conservatives” here have taken name calling to new heights. I can’t recall the last time one of them wrote “Obama” instead of “Obummer”, “Obamy” or “Onumnuts”.

          As to Mrs. O’Donnell’s mental health, this is the women who claimed that “American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains.” No one has to make things up to create doubts about Mrs. O’Donnell. She does all the work for them. And the claims of financial misconduct? Here is a link to a 2009 FCC report. Unless she can come up with another explanation for her relationship with Mr. Vasher, she’s in trouble.

          • independant thinker

            “I can’t recall the last time one of them wrote “Obama” instead of “Obummer”, “Obamy” or “Onumnuts”.”

            You sure do not read many of the posts on here. While there are many that use the terms you mentione3d there are just as many that use Obama.

          • http://MozzelaFirefox Jo

            They’re still going after her, even though she lost. Why? They must be afraid of her. There are experiments going on in secret. Have you heard of bio-engineering? If she tripped into any of this information, if they can’t discredit her, she could end up the victim of a fatal accident. They eliminated McCarthy when he found out what he was really fighting, and it wasn’t communism. Don’t underestimate the power of the people that really run our country.

        • Norm

          She is an air head. It’s not a name , it’s a fact.

      • Dale on the left coast

        “air-head” . . . . really Norm . . . . like Krazy Nancy who said “we need to pass this bill so we can find out what’s in it” . . . now that’s a real loon . . . and you voted for that???

        • Norm

          Dale on the left coast
          I’m not from Nancy’s state.

        • http://none Mike

          Dale, My big question in this is why are they going after her? When Rangel has done pretty much the same or worse and he is still in power. Big gap in justice here it seems to me. She is a white female conservitive and Rangel is a black male liberal is the only diffrence I see . Mike L.

    • eddie47d

      It was mostly Republicans who went after Christine.I wonder why that was left out. I can’t even imagine.Is this politics as usual or Mr Livingston as usual?

      • barbm

        rinos, not republicans. the true republicans haven’t taken office yet. the rinos were scared to death of her and all the other tea party candidates. i made donations to lots of republican candidates instead of to the gop because i knew the state and national gops would not lend their support to tea party candidates. the old republican party is full of crooks, liars, lawyers, professional politicians, etc. who don’t want to lose their power and all that pork. the new ones better darn well stand up to those rinos or they get fired next time too.

        Is Christine O’Donnell Rosie O’Donnell’s sister?She said her sister was a lesbian.She said,she is a virgin.hmmmm,I wonder.Most lesbians are virgins.HA Ha Ha Ha

        • coal miner

          I meant is a lesbian.

  • J.M.R.

    shes less of a air head than your party norm.

    • coal miner


      She is also a liar.Look at one of her so called academic records.

      ANOTHER College Denies Christine O’Donnell Attended Despite Her Claim
      The Huffington Post | Nick Wing First Posted: 09-29-10 09:54 AM | 2010 Elections, Christine O’Donnell, Christine O’Donnell Claremont, Christine O’Donnell Claremont Graduate University, Christine O’Donnell Claremont University, Christine o’Donnell Linkedin, Christine O’Donnell Schools, Delaware 2010, Another university is bringing Christine O’Donnell’s self-professed education history into question Wednesday, as Claremont Graduate University, a school that the Delaware Senate candidate claims she attended, has told Talking Points Memo that they have no record of her being there.

      “Claremont Graduate University has no student or education record for an individual named Christine O’Donnell,” Rod Leveque, a spokesman for Claremont told TPM Tuesday, despite O’Donnell’s inclusion of the school on her LinkedIn education history.

  • calan

    The lady was highly unqualified to be elected into the office, not mention many others.
    And it s seems to me evertime i read respones to this site or most others, everybody is name calling, not just Liberals.
    As to wheter she used campaign funds to pay her bills?
    Well,i would probably have to say most elected officials do the same.
    That s why it dose n t matter who or what party is in office
    Money corrupts most of them and big business and corporations have a lot more to offer than what she may have had in her funds.
    Very tempting.

    • Dale on the left coast

      Highly unqualified???? As compared to what . . . qualified people like Peelosi, Fwank, Reid and Dodd? Any Conservative common-sense individual with 3 functioning brain cells . . . is more qualified that the above-mentioned corrupt socialists.

      • packeryman

        If you really have good conservative values, how could you support this phony? She is making a living riding the conservative wave. Anti-masturbation cause, come on, lets get real about this sick individual.

    • barbm

      it’s because of these rules that more qualified people can’t run for office. if you don’t use some of the funds for living expenses, you must be very wealthy to be able to run for office. how many of you can take off work for close to 2 years, travel all over, be at a different function every night and still pay your rent, car pmt, etc? i couldn’t do it. the rules shouldn’t make it impossible for a poor or middle class person to run for office.

  • http://com i41

    Onumnutts sure was qualified and is a compulsive liar besides. Rangel sure as hell got caught usuing rent sudsidized propertyof his for a camaign as well the several hundred thousand of dollars he didn’t declare or pay for 17 years. Same goes for the loud moth vine hanger Waters and meddling in banking sandles. Also don’t forget Daschle and Geithner or the questionable stockmarket mess of the Clintons. Democraps escape paying their fair share and since all are millionares, what a bunch genatic sorry bastards. Just like the idoit pinheads thinking corn used for ethanol is food grade, it isn’t, it is a #2 feed grade which needs to be utalized by an animal, wheather it is beef, hogs, poultry, or fuel. Another giant cost of ethanol is the massive costs imposed by the EPA.


    I sense anothe Col. Lakin on the horizon with the investigation of Christine O’Donnell. It is more than apparent that Lakin was railroaded by a kangaroo military court that was influenced from the outside for asking the question “Where’s the BC for our CIC?” Accodring to the UCMJ that is a legitmate question but when your right to discovery is denied and banishment of friendly witnesses is incorporated by a civilian judge your chances of winning are slim and none.

    O’Donnell challenged a self acknowlwdged communist opponent, communist don’t just win they destroy the opposition so that it will never surface again, they tear to pages from the history books in order to stop all reference. Christine is in for one hell of a battle and is going to need a lot of help. Good luck sweetheart.

    • eddie47d

      “self acknowledged communist”? Another load you’re trying to put on that conservative train. Your train has left and you are definitely not On Time. How about some Proof Positive on who are those members in Congress? How about a DNC or RNC card to make your point a little factual. Is this more of your phony labeling and packaging to stir up trouble?

  • geo

    “corrupt socialists”, please, withall of the selfish conseratives, give me a good socialist goverment that does not kick you when you are down. Retiered U S N, and proud of it

    • 45caliber


      You need to move to Cuba, China, or even Russia then. They all seem to meet your wishes for a “good” government.

  • 45caliber

    If this is done solely to determine if she broke the law, why? Did she?

    On the other hand, if this is done solely to “punish” her for running against a Dem favorite (as it seems to me to be), then it needs to be stopped suddenly.

  • Jeff in Ohio

    They should be spending their resources on Corruption in the “Slowbama and his gay brigade” When you look at the people he surrounds himself with, there all Lesbos & Queers. BIRDS OF A FEATHER…

    • Kinetic1

      Are you implying that Dubbya was/is gay?

    • Doc Sarvis

      Talk about a waste of money; homosexuality is not illegal, why would you investigate that?

      • 45caliber


        You don’t have to be homosexual to be evil. However, Oblama seems to have a talent for picking people who are both.

        • Doc Sarvis

          Please tell me how many of President Obama’s appointeees are homosexual and how do you know that they are. You seem awfully obsessed with homosexuals.

  • Doc Sarvis

    If she didn’t break the rules that everyone is to play by then she has nothing to worry about. John Edwards is getting his finances looked at as well – same goes for him and any other.

  • calan

    Wow, depending on whatever party you are siding with.
    Both parties are just full of angels sent from heaven.

    One side says the Reps. are all honest and caring for the country
    The other side says the Dems are the same.
    You got to be blind,deaf or naive to sit here and idolize either one
    of the parties with such passion.
    They both are to blame for a lot of our problems,they both are very well capable of lying and cheating for their own gain,either for money,power or both.
    We want to see and hear what we want,but look away from the truth and that will get nothing solved we will just keep going in this same crazy circle hoping it will change.

    • Claire

      Calan: I agree with your words. The two-party system is what got us into all this trouble. The Democrats are no better than the Republicans and vice versa. Too much has happnened, I simply do not trust any of them. They are all on the “take” They take what they can when they can–for themselves. Third parties look real good to me. Or a staunch honest Conservative.

  • Robert

    Who shives a git.

  • http://com i41

    Claire, there is not a 2 party system. It is the Republican party and the Nazi Traitor Socialist Soros Party dictator ship. Soros calls the shots for the socialist party idoits, to do what what ever he wants in destroying the country and anyone running running against one of his freaks. When Soros destroys countries economies and brags about doing it to the USA, with willing enablers of the Soros Socialist Jackasss Party morons and the purple lipped marxist muslim dung brain cheerleader under George S control. The democrap that Christine ran against said he was a communist, just like George McGovern said and was for decades. I guess eddee cann’t read since he only does sign lanuage and hand signals, since very few people communicate in dog eater gunts. Reps beleive in being more self sufficient and very little government meddling in private life or businesses. Dems have always beleived in complete government control of all facets of everyones life and private businesses down to what you eat of create. Why do you think dumbocraps line up behind NaziTraitor Socialist Soros so tight? He supplies money for aLL dumbocrap canidates, down to small state officials elections. Soros always tries to destroy anything he wants to destroy, with his smucks in the Socialist Soros Party followers doing his biddings.

    • Claire

      i41–I have respect for your comments, but I still believe both parties have led us down the path of deceit. They both believe in the NWO, don’t you think? I simply cannot have any faith whatsoever in these two parties. The elected politicians from both parties have all participated in this chaos America is in, some more than others, but nonetheless they all had a hand in it. I don’t believe in big government and the big debt to China. It makes me mad as heck to owe China. And the useless war we are in now-both parties approved of going to Iraq–another neverending Vietnam. Both parties robbed from Social Security thereby placing the elderly in financial trouble. I have no sympathy for politicians, I consider most of them to be greedy, self-centered ego maniacs. Now we will have to wait and see what happens. I am not counting on anything. All I can do is hope and pray that someone in this government will have the common sense and honesty to do what is right for America and all Americans.
