A watchdog group says it plans to ask authorities in Delaware to investigate Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell's finances.

If she’s guilty of something, throw her in jail; for her sake, I hope she comes up clean.
The watchdog group is probably led by Tokyo Rove.
Beat the establishment & you’ll then get investigated by the establishment.
“Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington”
Wonder who funds them. Are their finances in order. I smell a former member of the Jude Rat.
Kiss it, noob troll.
What does “this is not good” mean?
Do you have any thoughts on the matter? Why a link and no commentary?
Um, our IRS head is a tax cheat. End of debate.
Sloan served as Nominations Counsel to the Sen. Judiciary Committee under Joe Biden and got her JD from U Chicago. Go figure.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, aka CREW.
Sounds more like the leftists than the RINOs. Besides, the time for a RINO attack is past.
I smell something Rovian about this.
That said, if she’s a crook, better to know before she’s elected. I hope nothing comes of it.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington
AKA The (Wrecking) CREW
Screw em! Saul Alinksy can kiss my ass - and so can all the asshats who use his tactics! Are they investigating Coons’ finances” Ha, not likely!
Left-wing, funded by Soros, loved by Daily Kos, nut case Porter Goss involved, run by one of the least attractive women in Washington, DC, which is saying something, in sum, big ax to grind.
Perhaps the noob wants to stir up controversy for the Left.
Do you support her if she’s guilty? I hope she’s not; I’m glad she won. WTH are you talking about? Late night?
She was investigated earlier by the IRS at the instigation of none other than Joe Biden—and no doubt Beau Biden, his corrupt son.
The IRS investigation found nothing other than some slight adjustments, which is par for the course, and which she paid.
Then, somehow or other, they mistakenly accused her of cheating on her taxes after everything had been settled. That was subsequently cleared up, the IRS admitted its “mistake,” but the damage was done, since naturally the Bidens and their minions brought in the news media. And, as we have seen, the crooked Republican establishment that works closely with the Democrats in Delaware.
Financial problems? No doubt. Most of us have them. Is that a crime?
If the allegations are true, she would not be the first candidate to play fast and loose with people’s donations - Charlie Rangel and Ron Paul have made that an art form and they’re not going anywhere. Also CREW is pretty easy to tie to the DNC and therefore to the Coons campaign. Finally, there are only 7 weeks left - I doubt they’ll have time to prepare an indictment. And the campaign finance rules still have plenty of loopholes.
She is incredibly photogenic but, from what dribs and drabs I’ve been hearing, she appears to be a bit...um...eccentric, to say the least.
Donors to CREW include such liberal groups as George Soros’ Open Society Institute, Democracy Alliance, Service Employees International Union, the Arca Foundation, and the Gill Foundation.
Or is that gig still on-going?
Melanie Sloan serves as CREW's Executive Director. Before becoming a prosecutor, Ms. Sloan served as Minority Counsel for the House Judiciary Committee, working for then-Ranking Member John Conyers (D-MI). Ms. Sloan also served as Counsel for the Crime Subcommittee chaired by then-Representative Charles Schumer (D-NY). In 1993, Ms. Sloan served as Nominations Counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee, under then-Chairman Joseph Biden (D-DE).
The Washington Post has variously described CREW as a “liberal watchdog group”, “nonprofit watchdog group”, “advocacy group”, and “nonpartisan watchdog group”. Roll Call reported in January 2008 that CREW files most of its complaints against members of Congress, and “all but a handful... have targeted Republicans”.
If the WaPo calls someone or something liberal, you can bet your bottom dollar that’s the case. Same thing they did with Palin.
It’s pretty clear that our opponents are slinging all the brown stuff they can lay their hands on. This is the place where Repubics typically tuck tail and vanish.
Let’s see how this opening salvo is handled by our side this time.
And oh by the way, how many millions in back taxes do White House staffers owe? CREW - most likely brought to you by the billionaire Marxist George Soros.
Do you mean Castle ?
Oh, and she is also one of the attorneys representing Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame in the suit against former Bush Administration officials in the Plame leak case.
More information on strong leftward tilt of that “watchdog group.”
O’Donnell hasn’t been found guilty. She isn’t on trial.
“WTH are you talking about? Late night?”
You responded to my post, then ask, “WTH are you talking about? Late night?”?
You’re a noob, and may be a troll.
And to tell the truth....they better come up clean - legally clean.
Apparently, the conservatives don't have the power to call for such investigations of liberal candidates and/or office holders.
And even when they do....and they find at the least "stink" and sometimes more....the perp is given a free bill of health by the msm. Wasn't there just such a case involving the old squeeze box from NY??
Close. Here’s a link the the ‘CREW Crew’—and all affiliations are on the rabidly Democrat side, coming out of Conyers’ office, Clinton’s civil rights division of the DoJ, Gore’s environmentalist organization, Democrat campaign consulting, etc.:
She dropped the $6.9mm suit in 2008 after 5 years of litigation. But she has collected more than a million dollars this week, so after 7 years of unemployment things are finally going her way.
what dribs and drabs have you heard about obama? Coons??
This is exactly what they did to Palin early on, attack and investigate her for alleged ethics violations. She is being Palinized, it didn’t work against Palin and it won’t work against ODonnell, she will come out all the stronger because of it.
Sounds pretty much like a hit piece.
O’Donnell needs to get on message ASAP because these shill groups be the “Citizen for Accountable Govt” a shill from 06-08, or this no name group, will continue to pop up.
Just curious....is CREW part of Tokyo Rove’s weaponry?
What in hill is the “Jude Rat”? Is this supposed to be some kind of implied anti-Semetic insult? It’s obviously a play on “Judenrat.”
Um, our IRS head is a tax cheat. End of debate.”
Exactly. Just as is most of the administration and their staff.
Of course nobody could ever accuse Herr Soros of holding a political bias, much less being a former employee of the Hungarian Jude Rat. < /endsarc>
I assure you I’m neither. Bye
But you’ll vote for Coons nonetheless.
