    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?
    That has not been my experience. I just managed a successful political campaign and I can tell you with 100% accuracy that not one dollar was raised illegally nor spent illegally and every dollar was accounted for on the proper forms filed at the proper time with the proper people according to the law. We spent lots of time and effort making sure we were squeaky clean. Anybody who would do otherwise is a fool or idiot.

    oooops - I forgot... or a witch.

    But, you can only account for that single campaign. Right?

    Perhaps it was a routine Democrat campaign...

    Yes and no. This was the campaign I managed this year. In the past I have given advice and written literature for others. Sometimes I was paid, sometimes for free.

    To prepare us for this campaign, we went to a two day seminar conducted by a veteran democrat of the state political wars and one two hours bloc was devoted to campaign finance reports. The thing they kept telling us over and over again was "learn this process as well as you know your own name" or "reach down into your pocket to pay somebody who does". I would bet that republicans have similar resources to train them.

    There is really no excuse for somebody accused of the things that O'Donnell's own people blew the whistle on except laziness or criminality. I can't see how it could be any other way. And with 7 million dollars coming in, you can buy the services of some really first class professionals.

    So O'Donell is doing what every politian does and we're all supposed to believe she wants to take on the establishment? Haha somebody is a little contradictory. Does Superman kill people the way Lex Luthor does?

    If you have any intellectual honesty, this is the approach that should be taken. If however, you're a partisan hack for the Dems, you'll scream 'Off with her head!' like a good little partisan hack.
