Christine O’Donnell Threatens to “Crush” WDEL-AM with a Lawsuit
Are you sure it was a lawsuit and not a spell? So much for all those Republican slogans about “tort reform” and “too much litigation.”
Christine O’Donnell gave an interview to conservative radio host Rick Jensen of WDEL in Wilmington, DE. Afterward, she was horrified — shocked! — to find out that the station might post a video of her interview on the station’s website.
Apparently Delaware’s favorite teabirther thought an interview on a talk radio program was just going to be a private conversation. And she’s campaigning for the Senate???
O’Donnell pulled a Sarah Palin deer-in-the-headlights panic when Rick Jensen asked her how she would have handled a local county budget differently than her opponent, Chris Coons. After the interview, O’Donnell said she would sue the station if they released a video of the interview. Her campaign manager, Matt Moran, called the station general manager and demanded that the station turn over the video, or he would “crush” the station with a lawsuit.
Before the interview began — while O’Donnell and her staff were already in the studio — a video technician came in to adjust the cameras and microphones. That might have been a tip-off that the interview was going to be videotaped. DUUUHHH!!!
Even though radio host Rick Jensen is a conservative, O’Donnell’s campaign manager said:
“This is another example of the liberal media shamelessly attacking Christine O'Donnell to boost their ratings.”
