O'Donnell Campaign Confirms Payment to Candidate's Mother
Source: The Daily Beast

Confirmed: Christine O'Donnell's campaign indeed paid out $3,500 to the candidate's mother, New Jersey resident Carole O'Donnell.

A spokesman for the O'Donnell campaign told CNN that "Carole O'Donnell, Christine's mother, did receive money for her services rendered on accounting and the FEC reporting for the campaign before the treasurer came onto the campaign."


Requests from The Daily Beast for additional information regarding the nature of the tasks performed and Carole O'Donnell's qualifications to perform them have gone unreturned since Beltway Beast first broke the news yesterday that the O'Donnell campaign had issued the payments.

O'Donnell's campaign finance issues are quickly piling up. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a nonprofit that spotlights corruption in politics, released a statement today calling on the Delaware Attorney General to investigate O'Donnell's use of campaign funds to pay for personal utility bills and rent. O'Donnell has told reporters her rent is partially paid by the campaign because her home, which she shares with a campaign staffer, doubles as a campaign office

Uses campaign money to pay her rent and now pays her mother campaign money.

There is just no end to this one.

Wonder what we will learn after the election.

You have to wonder how much of the DE Republican meltdown will help Sestak in PA as DE media bleeds into PA.

2. You know as much as these people "hate" government
They sure do like to reap the monetary rewards from running for an office or holding an office. I wonder why they can't get real jobs and pay their bills like the rest of us have to.

3. Republicon Family Values. Again. Ptoooey.
Morally, there is really nothing lower than these depraved Republicon Family Values that have Republicon Senators giving a Standing Ovation to adulterous diaper-wearing, hooker-boinking colleagues, wide-stance bathroom boffers, rentboy fanciers, credit card faux lesbian kinksters, Supreme Court sexual harassers, and of course the standard GRIFTING of clowns like O'Donnell and Palin, and and and...ad nauseum...

4. Did you know...
that O'Donnell's father was a clown? A part time Bozo. He didn't go to clown college or Bozo training, but he was a Bozo, nonetheless. True fact.

9. "as DE media bleeds into PA"
Philadelphia IS Delaware's media! :P We do all of South Jersey and Delaware in addition to Philly metro.

Not counting a couple PBS stations, Delaware has 2 tiny TV stations down in the southern part covering them and Eastern MD.

12. Flood gates have been opened.
If you're "pretty and perky", the Tea Party will worship you. Of course, "psycho" is an added bonus.

15. Hey, it's a reasonable redistribution of wealth from
donations made by citizens into private interests.

Unless you think there's something WRONG about Capitalism!!!
:sarcasm: :sarcasm:

On the plus side, it puts Ma O'Donnell in meatballs through the holidays.

16. What a fucking joke
Edited on Sun Oct-31-10 10:24 AM by alcibiades_mystery
Lurking Freepers, look what you've done.

Look at it. Payments to Mom for "accounting" and "FEC reports."

To the candidate's mother.

YOUR fucking campaign contributions, Freepers.

Aren't you the slightest bit embarrassed yet?

17. "Aren't you the slightest bit embarrassed yet?" No, they're not
The people who support wingnuts like O'Donnell have a double set of standards. What is good and right and moral and proper for the masses -- things like honesty and integrity -- are not applicable to their chosen elites. Not all elites, you understand, just THEIR elites.

Thus, it is okay to demand the resignation of Eliot Spitzer for cavorting with prostitutes, but it is also okay to allow David Vitter to be re-elected.

It is okay for Bristol Palin to have an out-of-wedlock child and still be a good family-values goooper, but if Chelsea Clinton or Amy Carter or a Kennedy had done that, they'd have been branded a whore.

It is okay for Clarence Thomas or Oliver North to lie under oath; it is not okay for Bill Clinton.

For the goooopers, their rich really ARE different, and they're okay with that.

20. Christine O'Donnell
Remove the first "n" and what do you get?

Christie O'Donnell

2012

Please.

McCain literally buried the bar with Palin so that apparently ridiculous concept really isn't at all far-fetched. And Christie is already traveling all over the country being packaged like some American Idol "star" and playing Springsteen's "Born to Run" at all his appearances.

http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2010/10/gov_christie_c...

Springsteen must be furious.

Rove is behind Christie just like he was Bush. It's so plain to see. Christie is just like Bush. Another incompetent, corrupt megalomaniac.

23. But but she's giving it to her mother! Just what a good daughter should do.
I mean, Christine is the one that made her mother's breasts sag, gave her stretch marks, and stretched her va jay jay all out of shape. Why shouldn't she get a cut of all that loot?
