O'Donnell Blames Politics for Lack of Investigation

Posted:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Former U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell is blaming politics for Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden's refusal to investigate a former O'Donnell campaign worker for possible perjury.

O'Donnell asked Biden's office earlier this year to investigate David Keegan Jr. for perjury, claiming that an affidavit he signed alleging campaign improprieties contained false information and was
not properly vetted by a Washington, D.C.-based group that filed a complaint against O'Donnell with the Federal Elections Commission.

In a letter this week, Biden's office said it was not clear that perjury occurred, or that Keegan even signed the affidavit in Delaware.

O'Donnell's lawyer responded Wednesday, saying politics appears to behind the decision not to investigate the perjury claim.

O'Donnell ran against Biden's father, vice president Joe Biden, in the 2008 Senate race in Delaware.
