Christine O’Donnell Threatens To Sue Delaware Radio Station To Get Copy Of Interview
This my friends is what you call arrogance and stupidity:
Christine O’Donnell threatened Tuesday to sue a Delaware radio station for not turning over a videotape of an interview with the Republican Senate nominee.
A campaign official demanded that WDEL give them the tape of the interview that had just aired, and, when the station refused, the candidate told host Rick Jenson said she would sue, according to an account from WDEL
The radio station also contends that O’Donnell campaign manager Matt Moran called the station and threatened to “crush WDEL” if the tape was not handed over.
The campaign ultimately apologized after being informed by actual lawyers that they couldn’t do stuff like this, but it leaves open the question of what kind of person thinks that threats like this against a free press are acceptable. This from the “Tea Party” candidate who claims to respect the Constitution.
It leads one to wonder what kind of relations O’Donnell would have with the press if she actually won an election. Thankfully, since that isn’t going to happen, we don’t have to find out.
