The U.S. Attorney’s Office is looking into claims by a watchdog group that Tea Party hero Christine O’Donnell used campaign funds for personal expenses.

Over the weekend, a Washington government watchdog group says O’Donnell spent tens of thousands of campaign dollars on personal expenses.

The Citizens For Responsibility And Ethics says the spending is all detailed in federal election documents, and the expenses include trips to K-Mart, gas stations and many restaurants.

“O’Donnell who has no other form of support appears to have used her campaign coffers like her personal piggy bank.”
