After five years of good faith discussions in private, Christine O'Donnell has been unfairly sued by the Federal Election Commission, over the same bogus charges brought in September 2010 by C.R.E.W. (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington), a left-wing group that terrorizes conservatives. The FBI investigated and found the charges were bogus and dropped the case.
Christine has lost her father in the interim and has been busy caring for her mother. She has been trying to live her own life. Yet the FEC under Obama has still sued Christine O'Donnell anyway.
Lawyers can be extremely expensive, and Christine O'Donnell is now in danger of losing a can't-lose lawsuit just because she is running out of money. She has put $30,000 of her own money into legal defense, but it is not enough.
Let's pull together -- remember the end of the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" with Jimmy Stewart, when the whole town pitches in a little bit of money to keep George Bailey out of trouble? Isn't that the kind of community and society we want to live in, where we all help each other out?
We need to raise $10,000 by December 7, or hopefully $30,000 or more, so she can hire a new lawyer in Delaware. Delaware is small with a poor economy (despite a few big corporations) so that there aren't many attorneys in Delaware to draw from.
Christine O'Donnell lived in one townhouse in Wilmington, Delaware, while her campaign used a SECOND -- DIFFERENT -- townhouse. There were two townhouses, not one. Watch the video from CNN's visit to the campaign headquarters at 1242 Presidential Drive, Greenville (Wilmington), Delaware.
However, the FEC is claiming that Christine O'Donnell lived in the campaign headquarters, when SHE DID NOT. She has officially denied in the lawsuit living in that townhouse rather than the other.
But Christine O'Donnell was persuaded that she should try something new. Christine wanted to keep her personal, actual residential private. As a lovely single woman, she had experienced stalkers. And angry liberals had tried to harass and intimidate her including at her home. So she wanted to have a public address at the campaign townhouse and keep her own private living quarters at her own townhouse private and confidential.

And her previous lawyer wanted Christine O'Donnell to set up a test case to defeat the FEC's intrusive and over-bearing regulation of campaign expenditures.
So Christine's expert lawyers from out-of-state have filed a counter-claim to challenge and over-turn FEC regulations. The out-of-state expert lawyers are itching to beat the FEC. But they need to hire a replacement attorney licensed in Delaware. They have to be sponsored by a Delaware local lawyer, or the case will get thrown out.
Remember: The only purpose of the Federal Election Commission is supposed to be to merely collect reports from campaigns and publish those reports for the public to see.
The FEC is not supposed to regulate campaigns or tell political campaigns what they can and cannot do. The authority of the FEC is supposed to be limited only to full disclosure of where campaigns get their money and how they spend it. The FEC should not be dictating how election campaigns operate.
If Christine wins the lawsuit, she will cut back big government and invalidate the regulation. It will not only clear her name and vindicate her, but also strike a blow against over-regulation and big government interference in elections.
Just to slap down the FEC and narrow their over-reach is worth donating to help Christine O'Donnell with her lawsuit from the FEC.
