Christine O'Donnell Lawsuit Threat: WDEL The Rick Jensen Show
Christine O'Donnell Threatens WDEL's Rick Jensen Show With Lawsuit, Over Video Taped Interview
Christine O'Donnell is not doing herself any favors especially during her bid for as Senator for Delaware. She demanded radio station WDEL and the Rick Jensen Show turn over the video tape of interview she had on the local a.m. radio station.
It is common for radio stations to video tape their interviews and post them on their web site but it is not common for politicians to be upset about this.
Apparently, no one asked the O'Donnell campaign for permission to video tape Christine O'Donnell.
At the conclusion of the interview, a representative from the campaign who had been in the broadcast studio with O'Donnell asked that the video be turned over to the campaign and not released. He stated that the videotaping had not been approved by the O'Donnell campaign.
O'Donnell also told show host Rick Jensen that she would sue the radio station if the video was released.
O'Donnell's campaign manager, Matt Moran, called WDEL and demanded that the video be immediately turned over to the campaign and destroyed. Moran threatened to "crush WDEL" with a lawsuit if the station didn't comply.
WDEL did not comply and ultimately the O'Donnell campaign realized they had made a mistake and WDEL was within its rights to post the video interview of O'Donnell. The lawyer for the O'Donnell campaign reportedly apologized to WDEL.
Christine O'Donnell is the Tea Party backed Senate candidate for Delaware. She is trailing Democratic opponent, Chris Coons.
