"(AP) BALTIMORE - A person with knowledge of the investigation says federal authorities have opened a criminal probe of Delaware Republican Christine O'Donnell to determine if the former Senate candidate broke the law by using campaign money to pay personal expenses."
Funny that the people in the press care nothing for the massive, virtually hidden, buckets of money from multinational corporations, and almost certainly from foreign governments, used to buy political candidates today, but they sure have time to savage this pathetic losing candidate for what is undoubtedly an extremely minor matter.
My take? The Republican party, despite doing everything it could to help this woman win their nomination (she rose a state record $7.3 million for her campaign) realizes that she made a total fool out of herself, and they are going to make sure that she is destroyed before she can humiliate them again. They didn't care about her idiotic views as long as they thought she could win, and were happy to give her a platform to air her insanity nationally, but now they are determined to see to it that she never has a role in politics again.
It has been clear since the nineties what a loon Christine O'Donnell was. That was just fine with the Republicans- they would have been happy to foist her off on the country like many another brain dead Republican legislator. But a losing loon? Off with her head.
