    O’Donnell admits using campaign cash to pay rent | Raw Story

    [O'Donnell] acknowledges using campaign money to pay part of the rent on her current town house. Her attorney maintains someone with the Federal Election Commission approved the arrangement, although the commission's rules say candidates can't use campaign money for their mortgage or rent "even if part of the residence is being used by the campaign."

    Is it really a smear if she's admitted it?

    Well if the article is correct and she went to the FEC (claims they OK'd it) and they are not charging her. Yes, that would be a smear.

    Well, it would be a smear on both Ms. O'Donnell and the FEC, wouldn't it, since FEC rules clearly state that no part of campaign funds can be used to pay rent/mortgage payments on a place of residence even if that residence is being used as part of a campaign?

    Ms. O'Donnell's lawyer says yes, Christine was using campaign funds to pay her rent - he says someone from the FEC said she could - the FEC, however, has not said they endorsed such usage.

    Christine O'Donnell has admitted doing something wrong - the FEC has not responded to the charges that they were complient with her wrongdoing.

    Why not wait and see how it works out? We know she's guilty, she's admitted it, now we need to hear from the FEC.

    I hope for her sake, she got their "ok" in writing. Not that two wrongs make a right - but at least she'll look less stupid.

    Unless she is at least charged she is guilty of nothing, her opponent has raised the county taxes by ~ 40% the last 4 years a disgrace in this economy. His policies would lead to more Americans unemployed.
