More than two years after her upstart Senate campaign rocked the Delaware political world, Christine ODonnell got an unexpected contact from a U.S. Treasury Department agent warning that her private tax records may have been breached.
The phone message earlier this year shocked the battled-scarred candidate, a tea party favorite who knocked off Republican mainstay Michael Castle in the primary before losing in a bid to win Vice President Joseph R. Bidens former seat.
Ms. ODonnell, this is Dennis Martel, special agent with the U.S. Department of Treasury in Baltimore, Md. We received information that your personal federal tax info may have been compromised and may have been misused by an individual, he said in the January message left on her cellphone.
For Ms.Donnell, the message immediately raised red flags.
On March 9, 2010, the day she revealed her plan to run for the Senate in a press release, a tax lien was placed on a house purported to be hers and publicized. The problem was she no longer owned the house. The IRS eventually blamed the lien on a computer glitch and withdrew it.
Now Martel, a criminal investigator for the Treasury Departments inspector general for tax administration, was telling her that an official in Delaware state government had improperly accessed her records on that very same day.
Beyond that, Ms. ODonnell and Senate investigators who have tried to help her have run into a wall of silence, leaving more questions than answers about whether abuses of the IRS system extend to private individuals and not just the tax-exempt groups already identified as victims.
I dont know. And Id like to know, Ms. ODonnell told The Washington Times in her first interview about the case. Because whether its one, eight or 80 [cases], its an abuse of power...

Government is out of control. The only way the GOP wins again is if we find a candidate who will take this on w/o apology. Anyone else will get crushed under the weight of the government/media destruction machine. Our only chance is someone that operates outside the rules and fights back and rallies the American people.
“We received information that your personal federal tax info may have been compromised and may have been misused by an individual,”
Gee, I wonder who this individual was.
Obama ordered his IRS to rig the election for it and democrats/socialists in the Senate
The Obama regime makes the Nazis look like a bunch of nice guys. The government is out of control.
It’s SOP when Democrats are in charge. It’s pure and simple fact.
We are going to Fundamentally Restore America, if it takes Texas splitting into 5 states with 10 senators with Constitutional Amendment capacity combined with the rest of the States.
Since this Martel showed her the name and picture of the person who accessed her records illegally, she should sue this individual and force discovery.
WRONG! They are too much "in control"! They are "changing", we are just "hoping"! Alinsky rules!
Fast & Furious
Look! Squirrel! (pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!)
Obama didn't have to "order" anything. He knew that his supporters in positions of power in the government -- federal, state, and local -- would do everything that was needed (illegal or unethical) to get him reelected. He can keep his hands clean.
Government workers should be banned from politics. Period. They have an irreconcilable conflict of interest.
Corruption is widespread and accountability none. Yet, the same who dont follow the law are throwing the book at innocent people
It is incomprehensible that our government would do that to a political candidate.
But, its too bad O’Donnell self destructed.
We may safely assume that the Tax Records of every 0bama opponent were, are, and will be breached
If the Left CAN abuse power, they WILL abuse power.
That is why the Left can not be trusted with an NSA surveillance society.
I agree. O’Donnell should out the perp and sue their ass off....very publicly.
Just another way to destroy Christine personally, and one mroe reason why she needs to run again.
Probably by Tokyo Rove.
