'Christine PAC': Christine O'Donnell Plans Political Action Committee

WASHINGTON Former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell is forming an issues-oriented political action committee.

O'Donnell said late Tuesday after a tea party gathering in northern Virginia that she wants to start the PAC as soon as possible to become more vocal and run ads on issues such as health care reform and taxes. She's calling it "Christine PAC" for now.

The Republican and tea party favorite says the PAC will allow her to endorse candidates, do independent expenditures in certain races and lobby on issues.


Geez, this is about as obvious as the nose on my head. Starting a PAC will allow her to convert that campaign cash into her bank account. She's got $1mil leftover which means she could pay herself a nice little salary while maybe giving a speech here or there to act like her PAC actually does something. I mean not only is the republican party alienating her but even Tea Party leaders have said they need better candidates then those like O'Donnell and Sharron Angle.

And clearly she learned from her master Sarah Palin, who conveniently setup a PAC for her daughter Bristol so she could make some money too. I realize there is a level of legitimacy of what O'Donnell is doing but I hope CREW keeps on the investigation of what she has done in the past and helps put a stop to O'Donnell.

I'm guessing O'Donnell will pay herself about $250k a year from her PAC and she can use PAC money to buy her new book and give it away to donors (which would put money of that leftover cash into her pocketbook.

For a Christian she's not very christian like. O'Donnell is a liar and a thief.

4. It is working great for Newt Gingrich and many other former politicians...
Put that "extra cash" to work for you!

Hell, if I could find a half million pinheads to kick in a few dollars each, I'd do it myself.

5. But what is sick is at least Newt Gingrich and those other politicians actually had jobs at one time
this women essentially just won the lottery using a small, heavily democratic state that any bozo would have known it was impossible for her to win.

She just didn't grift her voters - she grifted Delaware and that pisses me off.


Personally I think the RNC/RNSC should put a hold on that money. Think about it - she didn't spend over 1million dollars which is alot here in Delaware. It's almost like she ran this campaign on the cheap so she could have extra money leftover at the end. Since the established republicans can't stand her I say they go for it.

6. BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!!! I just KNEW it would be "ChristinePAC",
knowing she doesn't have shred of creativity in her, and figured it would be a great "tribute" to her mentor, Queen SarahPAC!
