Former Volunteer: Nominating O'Donnell Could Ruin the Tea Party

By Chris Good
Alan Moore, blogging at Virginia politics blog Bearing Drift, says he volunteered for Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell the last time she ran for Senate, in 2008, and that nominating her "could destroy the Tea Party." After a lurid exposition of some of the O'Donnell history actively promoted by her opponents, Moore offers a generic, unsubstantiated tiding of more bad stuff to come out in the future:

There are more crushing components in her back story that have yet to surface, but they will if she wins the GOP nomination. The Coons campaign is licking their collective chops with a smorgasbord of opposition research that hasn't yet seen the light of day. This is a warning to conservatives if you nominate O'Donnell: The national media will write off not only her but the entire Tea Party Movement as a laughing stock which could result in its ultimate demise.

We'll just have to wait and see. Read the full post at Bearing Drift.
