WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell went on the offensive Thursday following reports that federal prosecutors are looking into whether she illegally used campaign money for personal use.
She says the accusations are politically motivated and stoked by disgruntled former campaign workers.
The Delaware Republican appeared on several network television morning shows to defend herself a day after The Associated Press revealed authorities have opened a criminal investigation to determine whether she broke the law by spending campaign money on personal expenses such as rent.
She told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that there have been “no impermissible use of campaign funds whatsoever.”
She said she believes the Democratic and Republican establishments are out to stop her.
