GOPer: O'Donnell's actions were 'beyond indefensible'

(CNN) - President of the Media Research Center and conservative thought leader Brent Bozell blasted former Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell in an exclusive column for CNN.com

O'Donnell walked off the set of CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" Wednesday while promoting her new book, a move deemed by Bozell as "downright bizarre."

Calling the tea party darling a "buffoon," the head of the media watchdog group said CNN host Piers Morgan's questions may have been "trite," but were not "inappropriate."

O'Donnell wants CREW's tax-exempt status pulled

(CNN) – The verbal back-and-forth between former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW) continued Wednesday as O'Donnell made her case for why the group should lose its nonprofit status as a 501(c)3.

O'Donnell not a witch but a 'Troublemaker'

Washington (CNN) - While Christine O'Donnell lost her bid for the U.S. Senate in November, the Delaware Republican plans on reclaiming the media spotlight this summer with the release of her book, "Troublemaker: Let's Do What It Takes to Make America Great Again."

In an email sent to her PAC Tuesday, O'Donnell promised supporters to reveal "the real, raw story of my life," claiming that her closest advisers had concerns she was being "too honest, too open" while writing about her "bumpy journey into politics."

O'Donnell hails FEC complaint dismissal

Washington (CNN)– Former Delaware Republican senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell is hailing the Federal Election Commission's dismissal of a complaint lodged against her right before she captured her party's nomination and is asking for donations to help her mount a strong defense against other allegations.

In what O'Donnell now calls "a sort of Hail Mary pass in act of desperation," the former chairman of the Delaware Republican party lodged the complaint accusing her and the Tea Party Express, a group of tea party activists who had endorsed her and had staged an event to support her candidacy, of illegal coordination breaking FEC regulations.
