Way to go Tea Party. Whenever the debates over Tea Party and race get a raging, friends who are supportive of the movement state it is really about the debt and the how the Government spends money. So in Deleware, they nominate Christine O’Donnell over Mike Castle.
Smart. Because, afterall, who better to go in and clean up the spending in Washington than someone who:
was unable to pay the mortgage for her Wilmington house and the mortgage company gained a judgment against her for $90,000; the house was due to be sold at a sheriff’s auction in August 2008 when she sold it the month prior to her campaign’s legal counsel. In 2009, she moved to a townhouse elsewhere in Delaware, where she pays half the rent with campaign contributions because it doubles as her campaign headquarters for her 2010 senate run. Her 2008 campaign ended with $23,000 in debt, and between 2007 and 2009 the Federal Election Commission cited her eight times for failing to supply contributions reports on time. As of 2010, she owes payments to staffers, consultants, and volunteers from the 2008 campaign. In 2010, the Internal Revenue Service placed a lien on her for over $11,000 in taxes owed for 2005.

Yes…that totally sounds like a person who should be deciding how the government spends money.
