    Actually the material came from people from McDonnell's own campaigns.

    I do not understand why you would excuse criminal behavior?

    Why, because the criminal is a conservative, of course!

    Conservative media is reporting that the information came from O'Donnell's staffers, but they didn't file the complaint. The complaint was filed by a nonprofit group headed by a former Biden staffer.

    I don't condone criminal behavior like violating campaign laws or illegally crossing the border. The only people who condone criminal behavior to my mind are the residents of Harlem in NYC. Why is Charlie Rangel still in Congress?

    Re: O Donnell being investigated for misuse of funds

    I love the way some people, when their poster child gets accused of something, immediately say "Well the other person did it too, and they got away with it".

    Who cares what the other person did? Rangel should be in jail, that's what I'm saying.

    If a politician does something illegal, they should be punished, period. If she used campaign funds illegally, she should be prosecuted.

    Now.

    Extraordinary as it is, that these allegations were not brought to light until her campaign, it doesn't mean they didn't happen, nor does it mean that she should not be investigated IF there's evidence.

    If it's just an allegation, without proper proof, then those haters can bugger off, I'm not O'Donnell fan, but neither am I a fan of false allegations, it's disgusting.

    But anyone looking to excuse this behaviour if its true, by pointing the finger elsewhere, should be ashamed of themselves.

    O'donnell is being investigated... She is guilty of nothing. It's a shame to see the partisan circle jerk of rejoicing over an investigation of a conservative woman's campaign fund use. What other politicians do does not excuse bad behavior. However, many are treating O'donnell as if she is automatically guilty out of partisan hatred for her as a conservative.

    If you took peoples money with the intention of using it for one purpose, and use it for another, that's fraud.

    The law is the law.

    I don't care about the politics behind it. Those who break the law must be held accountable, so that it is an example for future candidates.

    fine by me

    get em all---the treas secty, the vet chair of ways and means, the friends of angelo, the still sitting gub of new mexico, the labor secty, the gub and comptroller of new york, the senator from CT, the mayors of sacto and sf, the congressman from detroit, the congressman from newton...

    or, instead, one can reserve one's outrage for individuals who, by virtue of their having been soundly defeated on tsunami tuesday, are today mere private citizens

    cheating is cheating, after all

    Politicians do it allllllllll the time and no one is ever prosecuted over it.

    Why is it so important to go after O'Donnell?

    The real question is: are they going after someone that broke the law, or just making an example of someone that dared take on the establishment?
