I dont think she violated any laws. I think those stories were overblown opposition attacks. I just think she was a poor candidate. I dont think she was a crook.
I believe the evidence is very clear--if she didn't violate the laws, then there must be some odd explanation. She should share that explanation if she wants to concince anyone that what her filings show is in line with the law and FEC regs. But look how she has dealt with issues over and over--red herrings. She evades the question and if pinned down just denies things without giving any evidence why we should believe her.
Maybe I'm letting other information and her repeated dishonesty bias my look at this issue, but in any case, if she were a Dem, nobody here would give her a pass on things half as bad.
There are legal ways a candidate can live off campaign contributions [...]
Heaven forbid she actually goes out and gets (and keeps) a real job, gaining some experience that might help her be competent at something like dogcatcher.
A good start might be to get a job where she could pick up some tips on managing money, if she wants to have a job that affects the finances of all Americans.
But I think that CREW's accounting of her violations is wrong--I think they missed that she made a few minor paybacks on the rent/utilities issue, for example.

(Paul Revere would have been flamed as a naysayer troll and told to go back to Boston.)
GONDRING embarrassed himself again: "if she didn't violate the laws, then there must be some odd explanation. She should share that explanation if she wants to concince anyone that what her filings show is in line with the law and FEC regs"
She did explain it. You are just too stupid to read.

GONDRING LIED AGAIN: Heaven forbid she actually goes out and gets (and keeps) a real job,
As Gondring already knows, Christine O'Donnell has worked many jobs.
Christine ODonnell worked for the Republican National Committee under Haley Barbour crafting the marketing message that helped take over the US House in 1994 and implement the Republican Revolution in 1995 (which later went astray, but started out powerfully). She has spent 12 years influencing Federal legislation. She has lobbied in the halls of the United Nations for American interests and conservative principles. She worked at Concerned Women for America, one of the largest organizations in America and the largest political womens organization on the planet, on public policy. She has been debating nationally on public policy since 1992. She worked at the Christian Coalition lobbying for conservative legislation in Washington, DC through their marketing operations. In Dover, Christine lobbied for conservative values and became a specialist lobbyign on bioethics and the morality of medical experimentation. She was called to testify in the Delaware legislature on these topics based upon her expertise. Christine has a proven record of 15 years of public policy success.

Christine did reimburse the campaign -- prior to any complaint -- for her personal expenses. That is correct. The campaign did not pay for Christine's personal expenses. On a couple of occasions, when the campaign paid in bulk for items, Christine paid the campaign back.
Yes, they did overlook Christine paying back the campaign to cover her personal expenses, which is routine.
