Weekly Standard: O’Donnell Sued Conservative Group for Millions for Mental Anguish; Falsely Implied She Was Taking Classes at Princeton
Court documents obtained Saturday by THE WEEKLY STANDARD reveal surprising new details about the gender discrimination and wrongful termination lawsuit filed by Christine O’Donnell in 2005 against her former employer, the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, a conservative non-profit based in Delaware.* O’Donnell, who is now challenging moderate congressman Mike Castle in the September 14 Delaware GOP Senate primary, sought $6.95 million in damages. In a court complaint, she extensively detailed the “mental anguish” she suffered after allegedly being demoted and fired because of her gender. And, although she didn’t have a bachelor’s degree until this year, O’Donnell implied she was taking master’s degree classes at Princeton University in 2003.
I recently linked the radio interview where O’Donnell was asked tough questions by a former supporter. For example, he asked her to explain why she said she won two of three counties in a 2008 Delaware Senate race. She replied that she had tied in one and come close in another. She lost in both. In one of those she lost 56.9 to 43 percent. When she wasn’t giving false answers like that, she dodged the questions — suggesting that the interviewer was being paid by Mike Castle.
Looks like Castle got to the Weekly Standard too.
