Mark Levin Emails: "Lol. I think you're an ass. You can quote me."
Talk radio host won't say if he's troubled by Christine O'Donnell's unsubstantiated claims of burglary.

Levin's assumption appears to be at odds with the facts. I contacted the O'Donnell campaign Saturday afternoon and published the report just before noon on Sunday. The only response came from O'Donnell campaign manager Matt Moran, who wrote that O'Donnell "was not admitted to a Masters Degree program at Princeton. She took an undergraduate non-matriculated class at PU on constitutional government." Moran did not reply to my subsequent email asking why O'Donnell claimed "ISI violated its promise to allow Miss ODonnell time to take Master's degree classes at Princeton," thereby costing her $150,000 in earning power.
So here are the facts: O'Donnell repeatedly referred to taking master's degree classes at Princeton; in fact, she did not, and her campaign has refused to issue a statement trying to explain this apparent falsehood.
Levin goes on:
True enough. Readers are free to read through O'Donnell's complaint and judge for themselves whether O'Donnell's reaction (even assuming her allegations are all true) is reasonable. According to the complaint submitted by O'Donnell herself:
I don't make that assumption. Read the piece.
Duly noted. O'Donnell told me she worked at CWA for about a year in the mid-90s. Since that job, O'Donnell was in charge of her own Christian conservative group, the Savior's Alliance for Lifting the Truth, and then worked for about a year at ISI before being fired in February of 2004. Since then she has made a living by running for Senate three times and doing varying amounts of freelance consulting.
Levin writes that I'm "smearing [O'Donnell] by cherry-picking," but I gave her a chance to respond after I read all 82 pages her court complaints. Perhaps Levin should read the lawsuit in full before he continues to argue about it.
