New O’Donnell Commercial: “I Am Not A Criminal”?

New O’Donnell Commercial: “I Am Not A Criminal”?

Delaware Republican senate candidate Christine O’Donnell had a rough and infamous 2010 campaign, ranging from bad publicity from released media clips to constant spoofing on Saturday Night Live.  And of course, we can’t forget the notorious “I am not a witch” commercial that made her a household name, and not in a good way.

But one aspect of the campaign that wasn’t as funny?  Allegations of financial mismanagement.  And those accusations are not going away.

From Delaware Online:

Tea Party Republican Christine O’Donnell, whose failed U.S. Senate campaign already has been dubbed a “scandal” by a national ethics group, is now the subject of a federal criminal probe to determine if she illegally used campaign money to pay personal expenses, a federal source in a position to know told The News Journal.

The case, which has been assigned to two federal prosecutors and two FBI agents in Delaware, has not been sent to a grand jury.

But O’Donnell saying she’s totally innocent, and the entire investigation is a plot by her enemies, which include everyone from Delaware Republican Party insiders to the Vice President of the United States. Via Top News 360:

“There’s been no impermissible use of campaign funds whatsoever,” O’Donnell told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

O’Donnell ticked off a long list of groups and individuals that she said could be behind the investigation: establishment Republicans, the Obama administration, and Vice President Joe Biden in particular; a nonpartisan watchdog group that she said had a liberal bent; and unhappy former campaign workers.

She said she believes the Democratic and Republican establishments are out to stop her.

“You have to look at this whole ‘thug–politic’ tactic for what it is,” she said.

 

‘Thug-politic’ or not, the allegations, which range from using campaign donations for personal expenses to illegally coordinating with outside interest groups, such as the Tea Party express, could result in serious fines or even jail time.

On the bright side, that could leave an opening for some “I am not a jailbird” commercials, should she attempt another run for office.

AWESOME guys! every time there is a question of politics, there is another dingbat saying something stupid...

and they still get elected, but NOBODY ever voted for them if you ask.

Where do we find these people? She's seriously out of touch with reality. Someone get a giant super-soaker water gun and blast her!

Who does she think she is Richard Nixon?

Excuse me while I fall on the floor and laugh my guts out. She's not a jail bird... and Christine, your parody was hilarious.

I think Christine O is a rich witch, or maybe she is a poor *****... Either way, she's a quack.

Deborah, WoW! you're talented, loved the lyrics, and yes I thought the same thing, If you are saying you are not a witch, you are just like me, then she's not telling the truth to at least 500,000 Americans

Somehow'totally innocent' combined with 'ran for office' just doesn't ring true to me...

SHE IS NOT A CRIMINAL !

SHE IS A GRIFTER !

And don't forget, she also did not pay many of her workers. It has been reported that this woman never actually had a legitimate job in her life. She went from that so called pseudo sexual education center or whatever they called it, to running for some political position 3 times in like 5 years. SO where did that other money go from those times she tried to run?

Bad girl, bad girl,
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do.
When the cops
Come looking for you?

Bad girl, bad girl,
You're such a squirrel.

You make true witches sick,
You make them want to hurl.

Bad girl, bad girl,
You're brain is in a swirl.

You've twisted it so long,
Now it's time to unwhirl.

Police man give me no break,
He tried to burn me up on a stake.

IRS beating down my door,
But I wasn't there,
I was at the store.

Since I am so poor,
They took all my stuff and
I don't have it any more.

FBI guy looking at me,
Cause I party for the T.

What else could it be?
Was it what I said last night on the TV?

Joe Biden give me no break,
He looked at me and said I was a flake.

He hurt my feelings don't you know,
But all the time,
I'm still raking in the dough.

Hey! Hey!

Bad girl, bad girl.

don't to the music the theme from "Cops" by Inner Sanctum.

Hope it make you laugh.

Oh yeah, Christine, if you're not a witch and you claim that you are just like me, then you are wrong.

Still chasing her around, Robin? Wasn't her political defeat enough for you?

7:00PM PST on Jan 5, 2011

Even if Biden were behind the investigation, so what! If she has nothing to fear then let the investigations go full speed ahead. You might say they aren't going on a 'witch-hunt' but rather, mis-use of politicals funds.
