    Looks like a Charlie Rangel defender-type exposing their own hypocrisy.

    Re: O Donnell being investigated for misuse of funds

    the witch melted when someone threw a bucket of water on her

    ie, her memory is not real relevent

    meanwhile, OBAMA'S original car czar, steven rattner, is a CROOK

    today: Rattner to pay $10 million in Cuomo case - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com

    TEN MILLION DOLLARS! in FINES!

    that's an awful lot of PAY TO PLAY, no?

    everyone knew about rattner, i knew...

    of course, like the witch from delaware, mr rattner was NOT elected by the good people of this once great nation

    no, he was APPOINTED

    and there's your executive judgement for you

    party on, progressives

    Re: O Donnell being investigated for misuse of funds

    Having been through a long campaign this year as a campaign manager, I know what it is to comply with all the accounting necessary and the proper filing of papers on all the money you took in and how it was used. And the one I was in was only a State rep office. I can imagine a Senate seat, even in a small state, is a nightmare if not done right.

    This is not the first time we have heard about O'Donnell and possible spending irregularities. During he campaign there were allegations about her doing this in the past also. It will be interesting to see how this develops over time.

    I love this line from her

    "We were informed that the Delaware political establishment was going to use every resource available to them, including launching phony investigations ... tying me up with lawsuits to make sure I can't move forward politically,"
    A terribly lopsided loss in the midst of a GOP tsunami is hardly moving forward - no matter if they let her alone or not.

    It looks to me like the past is what they are still investigating and not anything from 2010. Am I wrong?

    The article is not clear but the video says they go back to 2006. I found this interesting

    Former O'Donnell campaign manager Kristin Murray said in a robocall taped for the Delaware Republican Party during the primary that O'Donnell used 2008 campaign funds for personal reasons.
    If there is anybody who knows the dirt in a campaign its the campaign manager. They usually know more about what happened than the candidate does. For a former manager of O'Donnell to come out with this is potentially very damning evidence.

    Christine O'Donnell's political campaigns appear to be schemes to serve Christine O'Donnell instead of the electorate.

    Re: O Donnell being investigated for misuse of funds

    I just wonder why they are dredging this up now. Don't they have anything better to do? She's not running for anything that I know of and didn't they already investigate her during the election?
    Besides it seems misuse of campaign funds might be a requirement for successful politicians

    recently reviewed campaign finance disclosures to the FEC and noticed that Nancy Pelosi, via her own re-election campaign fund, made two contributions of $2,000 ($4,000 total) to Betty Sutton's campaign earlier this year. And just for good measure, the Pelosi-led Political Action Committee called PAC to the Future made two $5,000 donations ($10,000 total) to Sutton's campaigns on the same days that Pelosi's campaign made donations. The fun doesn't stop there though. Pelosi's campaign also made three more donations totaling $6,000 to the Betty Sutton for Congress campaign committee.

    Just don't get why the concern over O'Donnell. Oh well, I hope she's innocent of paying her rent with funds that I thought she was cleared of. Didn't she use the apartment as her campaign headquarters back then?

    This is politically motivated. The complaint was filed by a group connected to Joe Biden. Smart tactic. I think we'll adopt this tactic for use against the left. The left invents tactics and we adopt them for the next election cycle. Tie up defeated enemies and crush them. I like your attitude boy.
