Wow, what a con artist. She can fool all of the sheeple all of the time. She may come to regret that she's drawn so much attention to herself. Have fun with the campaign finance investigation, Christine!

29. About 7 weeks....
After she loses the election she is going to go out and follow the Sister Sarah playbook of bilking money from morons:

1) ghost-write a book that is really just regurgitated Right wing cultural war talking points in a sob-story frame work
2) make frequent guest appearances on Fox News
3) go on book tour for first ghost written book and announce new Fox show
4) announce second ghost-written book and begin taking paid speaking engagements
5) lather. rinse. repeat.

It sickens me that this horse shit works. The problem with being liberal is that you must actually know what the hell you are talking about to get people excited and willing to pay money to hear and see you...on the fundie/TEA Partying right that is totally inconsequential!

4. CREW has filed suit against her.... this won't get washed away...
And sure, she has supporters that feel heartened that she is "just like them," but fiscally conservative "real" Republicans who probably didn't vote in the primary because they thought Castle was a "given?" I think the polls will implode for her soon. I surely hope so.

52. That's what I was thinking. Ya "just like us" only if you're a criminal, liar and cheat -
otherwise you're "just like the rest of America" getting kicked in the gut by people that shape candidates like Christine.

Now if she had the backing of the Republican party pros, they would make sure that these easily discovered $20 expenses would become undisclosed $2000 expenses!

...always in the running for something, maybe - so they can spend those campaign dollars.

15. Keep digging Anderson. O'Donnell is proving to be a liar,
a cheat, felonious, and a political whore just like Palin. Thankfully, she is being investigated for her ambitious and adventurous con-artistry.
When we think of women like Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and yes, Olympia Snowe this country deserves better than a political prostitute.
As for that woman who thinks O'Donnell is just dandy, birds of a feather... you know. Looks like there is a large segment of this society who try to emulate the Corporate Big Boys. For far too many petty cheating has become the "American Way".

16. I hope others dig as well. I saw her opponent (damn! can't remember his name
and Biden's up there stumping for him today) saying "nobody is interested in anything either of us said 20 years ago, we need to talk about now." I thought that was classy plus keeps him above the name calling fray, but I'm so hoping Cooper and other investigative reporters plaster their findings all over the place.

expenses. And I use the word questionable in it's broadest sense. She has an investigation looming.

47. "I'm not a trust-fund baby"
which is her answer to all of this - that's all they will hear. Not the hypocrisy of filing a huge lawsuit, or violating FEC laws or anything else. Just "a lot of us don't have enough money right now either"

But portraying yourself as a college graduate when you're only one class away from graduating - even though she's a lying hypocrite to talk about "honesty" one day and lie about it the next - I still have some sympathy for her on that one. My SO was 6 credits from his degree, and when he went back to see if he could arrange something (teaching or directing in exchange for the credits, or even taking two classes) his school told him he would have to take TWO YEARS of classes now, since so many of his credits weren't acceptable now. Huh? So that implies that all St. Joe's degrees from the eighties are now invalid? But unlike Christine, he never tells anyone he graduated there, just that he went there. Anyway, so much of college education is just a money-making and barrier-making scam.

I didn't realize she had all these legal problems which are likely to be investigated so soon. She is obviously guilty of all this stuff and isn't going to be able to put up much of a legal defense. I love this whole situation so much.

Serves them right.

Investigate the hell out of her. Like most conservanazi teabaggin' kkkluckers, she's a dumbass fuckup and think she's above the law. Now, she's going to get coached by caribou barbie on how to get her message out: speak only through Faux News, the propaganda arm of the conservanazi rethugs.

26. But, if she's ...
indicted before the general election, will the election be postponed? Will the repubs get to pick another candidate?

What if, by some terrible happenstance, she gets elected then indicted, will the repubs get to install another Senator.

Yes ... I know I can look up the answers myself, but I'm really, really lazy this afternoon!

38. I think that's why CREW is wasting no time
in its' investigation. Even though I hope Chris Coons ultimately prevails, Christine should be taken to the woodshed, removed from the ticket and Mike Castle re-instated to run against him.

She was her own treasurer????

37. Do you think she saw "The Producers?"
Run for an office you know you won't win. (your play is so awful it closes opening night -- you pocket the seed money). Pocket the money from your contributors and pay your rent, your utilities, and even your bowling games. The woman hasn't had a job in years. She IS a grifter. A smiling, perky, chipmunk cheeked grifter.

39. According to her, I've got it all backwards!
I'd lie like hell if there was a Jew in my house and the Nazis showed up! And I am a volunteer treasurer for a nonprofit and I'd die before I'd use a penny for myself. And I'm an agnostic.
Proves what I said a long time ago. The religious zealots are the ones who cannot be trusted. We see that over and over again.

46. I can't help but ask
Can't we let the media handle this one and just ignore her (as long as we don't live in Deleware of course)? Isn't our time and energy better spent elsewhere? Not that she isn't amusing but we need to push the focus towards the national issues that matter and convince the electorate that the democratic candidates are the ones working for them.

We have to stop playing defense and getting side tracked. Just sayin'

50. I get your point - trashing her can be a time-waster
since her record speaks for itself. But, if she's broken FEC rules, she needs to be publicly and decisively disenfranchised. She's been at this game for too long.

55. Just Another Pretty Face Con Artist
The bit about her admitting she'd tell the Nazi's that Anne Frank was hiding in her attic because lying is never justified blew me away.

It would he helpful to have this dingbat around till November but the odds on that shrink daily.
