CREW's Melanie Sloan who called for an investigation into Christine O'Donnell for campaign finance fraud earlier this year responds to O'Donnell's accusation that the federal criminal probe looking into just that is nothing but a left wing liberal conspiracy by people who are out to get her.
Former Republican senate candidate Christine O'Donnell took to the airwaves of at least five morning shows today to fight back against the "thug politic tactic" being used against her by way of the federal criminal probe into allegations of improper use of her campaign funds.
But you really only needed to watch one of her appearances to get the gist of what she said: that Vice President Joe Biden's allies were using the FBI to conduct a campaign against her, the ethics group which brought the complaint is funded by George Soros and the former campaign staffers who have charged she misused campaign cash are disgruntled.
O'Donnell never really got around to the substance of the complaints against her, which the president of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) told TPM could center on exactly how much money O'Donnell is found to have misspent (more on what exactly O'Donnell is accused of here).
As Ryan at TPM noted, of course she didn't have any evidence that Biden was behind the probe, but when has a little thing like facts ever gotten in the way with this woman? As Melanie Sloan pointed out, she already admitted to misusing her campaign funds. It's just a question of the dollar amount.
