KNIGHT: Time to disarm partisan CREW

Liberal attack group finds itself on receiving end of IRS complaint.


On Sept. 20, 2010, right after Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell became the GOP’s U.S. senatorial nominee in Delaware, a political watchdog group filed two ethics complaints against her. Miss O'Donnell subsequently was dragged through the mud by the liberal press for weeks before the election, accompanied by red-hot rhetoric such as this from Melanie Sloan, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which filed the complaints:

“Christine O'Donnell is clearly a criminal, and like any crook, she should be prosecuted. Ms. O'Donnell has spent years embezzling money from her campaign to cover her personal expenses … thieves belong in jail, not the United States Senate.
