Citing "Mental Anguish," Christine O'Donnell Sought $6.9 Million in Gender Discrimination Lawsuit Against Conservative Group

...and falsely implied she was taking master's degree classes at Princeton.

Even more disturbing, says Gaffney, is O'Donnell's claim in her recent WEEKLY STANDARD interview that her home and campaign office were broken into and vandalized and burglarized in 2008. O'Donnell did not report the alleged burglary and vandalism to the police, but suggested that Castle supporters may have been the ones who committed the alleged crime.

“If that’s true and she didn’t call the police, she’s not only endangering herself but her neighbors," says Gaffney. "She also likes to say there are people hiding in her bushes.”

"It doesn’t sound stable when you add it all up."

*Disclosure: I had a 2006 summer internship at National Review and a 2007-2008 writing fellowship at THE WEEKLY STANDARD that were funded by the Collegiate Network, a program administered by ISI. To the best of my recollection, I've only spoken to one person named in O'Donnell's lawsuit, Kenneth Cribb, only once in my life, back in 2005. I have not spoken to any current or former ISI/CN employees in months and did not obtain any information in this report from current or former ISI/CN employees.
