Looks like former national punchline Christine O'Donnell is in a bit of trouble with the Feds about her campaign spending.
Federal officials have begun a criminal investigation of defeated Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell (R) regarding her alleged use of campaign funds for personal expenses.
The Associated Press cited an unnamed source in reporting Wednesday that FBI agents and federal prosecutors have been assigned to the case, which has not yet been referred to a grand jury.
O'Donnell, a Tea Party favorite, pulled off a stunning upset of veteran Rep. Mike Castle (R) in the GOP Senate primary, raking in a state-record $7.3 million-plus fundraising haul.
But the conservative activist was dogged with questions about her alleged disbursement of $20,000 from her campaign account to pay her rent and other personal expenses.
My first question would be "Well, now would the Feds be investigating her if she had won in November?" Even I would be hard pressed to think that would happen to an elected Senator, Magical-American or not. Still, it's hard to imagine the cavalcade of failure that is this woman get much worse, short of one of her spells backfiring and releasing a pack of rabid wolverines into a day care.
Joe Miller may be the poster child for Republicans Who Blew It right now, but with the end of 2010 fast approaching, O'Donnell is making her move.
