Christine O'Donnell (R-Grassy Knoll) thinks everyone is out to get her

By Jonathan Capehart

By now, we all know that Christine "I am not a witch. I'm you" O'Donnell is reportedly being investigated by the feds for allegations that she used $20,000 in campaign contributions to pay her rent and other personal expenses. Well, this morning the failed Republican Senate candidate from Delaware made the rounds of the morning talk shows to defend herself. Unfortunately for O'Donnell, she raised more questions than she answered.

On "Good Morning America," O'Donnell blamed disgruntled employees and the Delaware political establishment, including Vice President Biden, for her predicament.

You have to look at this whole thug politic tactic for what it is.... I'm confident that we will be cleared of any charges.... You don't need a tipster to show that this was politically motivated. 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.... I even expect more things to come, that's their tactic.

Um, why would the Delaware political establishment bother trying to stop O'Donnell from moving forward politically when the voters did it resoundingly for a third time at the polls in November? She lost to Chris Coons (D) by almost 17 points.

O'Donnell's turn on the "Today Show" had the same conspiratorial talking points as in the GMA sit-down. But her response to Ann Curry's point-blank question -- "Have you ever used any of the campaign funds you have raised... for personal use?" -- still has me scratching my head.

"Because my home was vandalized and eggs thrown at my house," O'Donnell explained, "I pay the campaign money, I pay the campaign money to use the townhouse as my legal residency, not the campaign pays me." I've watched this clip about a dozen times and I'm still trying to figure it out. I think I almost got it. But let's see if the reported investigation into this and other allegations can nail it down.

Good lord, these harpies are so predictable.

Sarah Palin blames Barack Obama for nearly everything (has she ever offered him a compliment on the record?) and now Christine O'Donnell is taking on Joe Biden.

So much for Republicans and their mantra of "personal responsibility."

I was looking forward to another entertainingly incoherent Christine O'Donnell performance, but in fact, the video seems entirely clear to me.

Whether it's true or not, she's saying that the campaign pays for the townhouse, and she pays the campaign rent to live there.

Ms. O'Donnell is absurd enough in reality. There's no need to invent fictitious absurdities; that only gives her ammunition to claim that the MSM is out to get her.

Let me explain. Christine obviously donated her house and car to her campaign. She then resided there to protect the campaign strategy and particulars from vandals and Watergate style Democratic operatives. For her protective security services to her campaign (living in the campaign headquarters), she billed the campaign 10K a month. Thus the campaign paid for the townhouse, utilities, phone, car, gas etc plus 10K a month to Christine for security services. Sheesh give Christine a break.

You don't see a problem with this? Or is this just what most self-proclaimed "real Americans" aka Tea Partiers do? You know, find a way to "game the system" and work it to their own advantage.

Ideology schmideology.

If the Tea Party is to be anything but a flash-in-the-pan media event, it will have to do what every other political organization does: grow up and learn the ropes.

You can't have it both ways. If you want to be politician, you have to be a politician. You have to do your homework and learn how to stay out of trouble.

Where is the money coming from that she used to pay for anything personal with? What actual jobs has this grifter held over the past 5 years or so? If she paid the campaign, where did this money come from?
C'mon, O'Donnell apologists... even you must see that she has been gaming the system for years. That's your money given for political reasons that she's been using to pay personal expenses with.
Name a job this woman has held within the past 5 years.

JFredSmug, I didn't say I had no problem with this. Re-read my post. I said that Mr. Capehart is wrong in portraying this particular video clip as incomprehensible, and that it is precisely this kind of superciliousness that gives Ms. O'Donnell ammunition for her claims that the MSM is out to get her.

Watch the clip. She is saying that her house was vandalized, so she moved into the townhouse paid for by the campaign and paid it rent. Mr. Capehart is not criticizing Ms. O'Donnell's odd interpretations of campaign finance law here. He is claiming not even to be able to understand the excuse she makes.

Perhaps he should listen to the clip again, and the 13th time will be the charm.

Posted by: Itzajob | December 30, 2010 2:00 PM | Report abuse

Itzajob: Where has O'Donnell gotten the money to live on, to pay her personal bills, over the past five years or more? What is the source of her income? What legit jobs has she held?
Simply moving into another house ( and it takes maybe ten minutes to wash egg off siding or glass... that's a canard ) somehow justifies paying your rent out of hands-off political funds?

Posted by: badgervan | December 30, 2010 2:29 PM | Report abuse

Badgervan, Why are you asking me? I assume she's taken it from her campaign. Like I said, she doesn't care about or follow campaign finance laws.

If Ms O'Donnell did what she is alleged to have done, my view is that she just hasn't lerned how to be a professional politician. Take the allegation that she gave her mother $5,000. Most politicians "hire" their wife or daughter to be the campaign "advisor" at an annual salary of $150,000. That's what experienced politicians do. O'Donnell can be faulted for being naive; not a thief.

That's sophisticated. Just like a real professional politician. If you go after her, you'll have to go after all the other politicians who "hire" their wife or daughter to be a campaign advisors at $150,000 a year.

Christine can make all of this go away by providing proof that she earned income needed to cover her expenses. I mean EARNED INCOME, not funds from political contributions.

If the folks that are demanding to see Obama's birth certificate want to be taken seriously they should demand that Christine show proof that she has EARNED a living.

Posted by: Freethotlib | December 30, 2010 4:07 PM | Report abuse

I haven't seen the clip, but if previous posters are correct, it sounds as if her primary residence was vandalized, in which case she may have been afraid to stay there; as a result, she moved into a townhouse paid for buy the campaign, and reimbursed the campaign for it. OK so far.

The problem arises in figuring out where the money is coming from to pay both the mortgage on her primary residence while reimbursing her campaign for renting living space, when she appears to be chronically unemployed and has no financial assets.

Like Lucy, Christine still has some 'splainin to do.

O'Donnell cannot hide her glee and delight at this turn of events (watch her interviews - she can't stop smiling). She should send a Thank You note to the FBI.

She gets a fresh round of exposure in which she can throw red meat to the conservative base (claiming liberal media bias, liberal pressure behind the scenes, etc.). This case can be dragged out for years, during which she can build an image as a conservative martyr, sell another book about her "ordeal" and rake in huge speaking fees.

This is exactly what she needed to extend her 15 minutes into something potentially longer-lasting and far more lucrative. Christmas came a few days late for her this year.

Not once was it mentioned by the Journolistas on WaPo that the complaint to investigate O'Donnell was filed by the Center for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) a GEORGE SOROS funded non-profit.

And the woman who heads CREW, Melanie Sloan, is leaving to become a lobbyist in Democrat Lanny Davis' firm.

Soros is using another tactic to discredit the Tea Party by taking down candidates they backed.

Why didn't they file a complaint to investigate Obama's foreign donors from his 2008 campaign?

Hillary is the crest of the wave. She claimed, with no evidence whatsoever, that when her husband understandably strayed, that he was the subject of a right-wing vendetta. The idea that right-wing operatives wafted ladies before poor weak Bill's bemused eyes is daft, but it has been swallowed whole by Progressives who have given him a pass for perjury and other high crimes and misdemeanours, and then anointed him a SAINR. So, St. Bill roams the land, anointing progressives wherever he can find them. Future historians will marvel at the deal the Clintons have given themselves, and their supporters have woven. Hurrah for falsehood. Christine O'Donnell is a much tamer smarrm.
