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

    At issue are more than $20,000 of spending in 2009 and 2010 that Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington claims was illegal.

    "It turns out Miss O'Donnell has treated her campaign funds like they are her very own personal piggy bank. She's used that money to pay for things like her rent, for gas, meals and even a bowling outing. And that's just flat-out illegal," said Melanie Sloan, the group's executive director.

    In an interview on CNN's "AC360," Sloan said her organization would be sending letters to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware and the Federal Elections Commission on Monday asking them to investigate.

    They're all crooks, Ds and Rs alike. At this point, I don't trust nearly any of them.

    A request for an investigation by a "watchdog" group (who do they work for??) is not the same thing as a finding of fact.
    FAIL.

    "Watchdog" groups funded by the opposition party designed to harass candidates with lawsuits and unfounded rumors.

    With trillions of dollars and control of the masses at stake I expect no less from the American Communist Party (Democrats).

    You'd have a case if CREW didn't also go after Democrats.

    How much did her campaign spend in 2009 and 2010? If $20,000 was a small portion and the reason it was misspent is reasonable, I say we shine this on. I'm not saying O'Donnell has no obligation to follow the law, but campaign finance law is byzantine, and her lapse may have been accidential (if it happened).

    Nobody gives a fuck about your phony ethics.

    Dems have Nazi Collaborators, murderers, Socialists, Fascists, thieves, tax cheats and KKK Grand Kleagles running their Party and the county and in the process they ran up 2 record Trillion deficits, took over health care, the banks, the car company, and control every aspect of our lives.

    Id send Hannibal Lecter fava beans and a Reserve Chianti if he was running against a Democrat anywhere in the country

    O'Donnell, the gift that just keeps on giving. Get her and the other Teabagger wingnuts in front of a mike whenever possible for as long as one can get them to talk. They are the greatest gift the wingnuts have ever given the Democratic Party.

    I see. Then you have no problem with the re-election of Wrangle?
