Following reports earlier today that former senate candidate Christine O'Donnell was the target of a criminal probe into a misuse of campaign money, O'Donnell is firing back -- and if you were looking for patented O'Donnell crazy, she doesn't disappoint.
Since anonymous sources are being taken seriously, please allow me to share some tips I've received and keep the tipsters' identities anonymous. We've been warned by multiple high-ranking Democrat insiders that the Delaware Democrat and Republican political establishment is jointly planning to pull out all the stops to ensure I would never again upset the apple cart. Specifically they told me the plan was to crush me with investigations, lawsuits and false accusations so that my political reputation would become so toxic no one would ever get behind me.
First, that would be Democratic insiders. Second, a report about an investigation about specific allegations that were made last September hardly qualifies as a "crush [of] investigations, lawsuits and false accusations." And third, her political reputation was made toxic by the incredibly long list of crazy that came out of O'Donnell's own mouth over the years. In fact, allegations of a misuse of funds is probably the least crazy thing ever attached to her name.
I was warned by numerous sources that the DE political establishment is going to use every resource available to them. So given that the King of the Delaware Political Establishment just so happens to be the Vice President of the most liberal Presidential administration in U.S. history, it is no surprise that misuse and abuse of the FBI would not be off the table. And further connecting the dots, do you think it is just a coincidence that Melanie Sloan was a senior Biden staffer just before she joined CREW and filed her complaint against me?!
Well, sure. The Vice President probably has a get-Christine war room set up at FBI headquarters.
And as for Melanie Sloan? She worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee when then-Senator Biden was its chairman ... seventeen years ago.
O'Donnell concluded by saying:
I have faith that our supporters and the general public will see right through these thug tactics. This is simply an Establishment trick to stop the anti-establishment Tea Party movement in its tracks. Heck, the Presidency is at stake in 2012.
Is she announcing her candidacy?
