Thank you for having me hi Alison so let's clear up some some information this morning have they filed a formal investigation against you or are you still learning about of rumors about this.
You know I find it awfully suspicious that the Associated Press -- tipped off before I or my lawyer -- my campaign.
Has received any notice.
Legitimate organization pursuing this it appears.
That this is the same -- crew complaint trumped up charges by the left wing George Soros funded crew organization.
That the charges are led by Melanie Sloan -- a former Biden staffer.
Where they're using a so called credible witness who is a disgruntled -- here.
As their star witness and -- become so obsessed with this whole thing that he's resorted to.
-- pornographic comments about me on face back so you know it appears that this is just the same tough thug tactics that.
That they've been using for months to discredit.
This anti establishment movement that's gaining more and more strength.
And -- do you have any evidence to suggest you mentioned -- Christine you mentioned the vice president mentioned Vice President Biden obviously one of the largest political forces in Delaware as as death as possibly behind this do you have any evidence to suggest that the vice president.
Made a phone call perhaps and got this FBI.
You know men and -- men and -- the vice president but for -- look at who's behind.
The two complaints that have been filed with the FBC.
You've got the Delaware GOP.
If you filed.
Of ridiculous complaint with the FEC for coordinating with the Tea Party.
You know and we embarrass them we took out their their so called anointed untouchable candidate Mike Castle.
In the primary and then you've got Melanie Sloan and krill and -- for George Soros funded.
Former Biden staffer complete received several tips on -- sorry.
-- out -- these go back to 2006 these accusations let's just.
Just set the record straight have you ever used campaign money for personal use.
No there's never been any misappropriation.
Of or misuse of campaign funds and and if anything does materialize from these rumors we will continue to fully cooperate with any investigation as we have with the FBC complaints.
Because we've taken every step every measure.
To make sure that we're in full compliance.
With all of the very complicated rules and regulations and we've got the best attorney and best compliance firm.
Working with us out and I'm not afraid of any investigation politically motivated or.
And when you say crew just -- that viewers noticed citizens for responsible and and -- responsibility and ethics in Washington they say that they are a nonpartisan.
Watchdog group and -- -- to former.
Campaign aides of viewers.
We stopped them because they -- obvious abuse what they say is -- -- used part of your really vast.
War chest you you did bring in.
And seven point three million dollars which of course was groundbreaking.
There in Delaware and basically use it to pay your rent did you -- it did you say that -- you are.
House was used in part as -- campaign headquarters and therefore justified being used his -- -- now let me set the record straight on this first of all these two disgruntled.
Woman as a volunteer.
The other was.
Someone that we hired for a week and a half and we had the fire she was fired from the Delaware GOP before she joined our campaign we brought her on.
And quickly saw that she was indeed and confident.
Now these two people that you're used that they're using as -- their key witnesses.
We're from 2000 -- the crew complaint states miss used in 2009.
So how did date you know did they a look at a crystal ball and and and I -- these things through their crystal also they weren't.
They did not have access to campaign in 2009 end.
I also want to point out that too disgruntled.
People from 2008 are making these false accusation.
In the meantime numerous people who truly -- -- involved in the 2008 campaign.
Has stepped up to help set the record straight and say look I've been involved with.
With the campaign for months and we didn't see any misuse of funds -- we -- only a 100000 dollars in 2008.
Now regarding the whole thing that's been taken out of context about the rent the current -- -- rented townhouse.
To uses our campaign headquarters.
Because my personal home was vandalized.
-- broken into eggs thrown at it nasty words written on the front door.
I used that town home as my legal residency and I paid -- can't teen.
Ranked in order to use it as my legal residency that's where the whole rent thing.
Has been taken out of context but it's I who -- the campaign.
Not the other way around so this has been totally taken out of context.
In an attempt to.
To discredit this whole Tea Party movement that's put that the corrupt system on notice.
All right Christine O'Donnell thank you for joining us this morning and trying to -- -- your side of the story out there we appreciate and please keep us up to date if you actually do here of a formal investigation.
