    BALTIMORE — A person with knowledge of a federal campaign-finance investigation says a criminal probe has been opened into whether Delaware Republican Christine O'Donnell broke the law by using campaign money to pay personal expenses.

    The person spoke on condition of anonymity to protect the identity of a client who has been questioned in the probe. The case, which has been assigned to two federal prosecutors and two FBI agents in Delaware, has not been brought before a grand jury.

    Ends justify means. Classic myopic extreme right-wing behavior.

    In fairness, she has not yet been indicted of these particular crimes. However, she is the subject of an on-going criminal investigation.

    There have been allegations of financial irregularities regarding the allocation and usage of campaign funds by Christine O’Donnell, including from former employees, for quite some time. These potential charges do not only stem from her failed bid to acquire a U.S. Senate seat last month.

    She’s been a professionally unemployed person more often that not over the past few years and her finances, particularly while a declared political candidate, have always had a somewhat irregular appearance.

    Should she be indicted I wouldn’t be terribly surprised to learn she is in fact guilty of what people have been whispering about in New Hampshire for a couple of years now. I’m sure we’ll hear one way or the other if actual charges are coming in the not too distant future.

    The whispers simply became much louder during her Tea Party financed campaign as that money helped expose her vast nuttiness to a whole new group of people, both in the Granite State and the rest of the nation, that would never have even heard of her otherwise. And the more they heard, the less they liked.
