O'Donnell vindicated by FEC - Charges "frivolous"

Former Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell says the Federal Election Commission has dismissed a complaint filed against her during last year's campaign by the Delaware Republican Party.

The state GOP accused O'Donnell and the Tea Party Express of violating FEC rules that restrict coordination between candidates and outside political organizations.

The complaint alleged that the Tea Party Express solicited donors to contribute to O'Donnell and that O'Donnell and the group worked jointly on advertising, breaching federal rules.

In a post on her Twitter account Thursday, O'Donnell says the FEC had dismissed the complaint, which she described as frivolous and politically motivated. O'Donnell's campaign lawyer confirmed that the complaint had been dismissed.

At this point, I would suggest that the Delaware Republican Party apologize and bring Ms. O'Donnell BACK into the fold to help win in 2012.  Since I was personally named in this lawsuit, I am quite happy to hear that this was the FEC's finding.  It should also be a warning to those who judge candidates based on the desperate attacks of other candidates...look for FACTS...not allegations.
