Anti-masturbation activist, witchcraft-dabbler, and GOP senate candidate Christine O’Donnell dodged her Sunday show appearances in order to attend a partisan fundraising picnic in Delaware today. She used the opportunity to try to laugh off the revelation that she “dabbled into witchcraft” when she was younger:
Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is making light of comments she made more than a decade ago about having dabbled in witchcraft when she was in high school.
“How many of you didn’t hang out with questionable folks in high school?” she asked fellow Republicans at a GOP picnic in southern Delaware on Sunday.
“There’s been no witchcraft since. If there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter now,” O’Donnell jokingly assured the crowd.
O’Donnell’s strategy for the time being appears to be a concerted effort to avoid answering tough questions about her background by simply offering unchallengeable statements in public appearances at which media are present.
Karl Rove said O’Donnell’s witchcraft comment can’t be ignored. “In southern Delaware, where there are a lot of church-going people, they’re probably going to want to know what was that all about,” Rove said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And again, she said it on television when she went on the … the Bill Maher show.”
