Skip to comments.Former GOP Senate Candidate Christine O’Donnell Told Her Tax Records Were Breached
Posted on 07/17/2013 6:58:45 PM PDT by kristinn
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...

Yes, and that thought even spreads to everything else like sending money to political candidates or Tea Party groups or even signing the various petitions opposing Regime actions. There is now a blanket of intimidation over the country that discourages going on record against Obama and his fellow totalitarians.
The liberal fascists have no regard for the constitution and consequently our formerly perfect “union” is now deteriorating into Civil War.
These ba$tards deserve to be arrested , tried and jailed or else there will come a backlash of violence against them. A pox on Obama and every one of his liberal fascists in Delaware and elsewhere in our nation.Soon the US public will conclude they must go, be arrested or die.A free people cannot live under a fascist regime.
Fundamental transformation sucks.
All commands are issued verbally to Jarrett, who then issues her own verbal commands. No electronic or paper trail.
From Howie Carr:
Don't write, when you can speak. Don't speak, when you can nod. Don't nod, when you can wink.
And just for fun, Howie's other rule of politics:
Nothing's on the level. Everything's a deal. No deal too small.
If WE THE PEOPLE do not fight this kind of thing (especially this specific criminal act) we are not America any more. Liberty is shrinking and we are losing the battle for the Idea Of America.
Hello! Wake TF up people, we HAVE to learn how to convey THE message in this day and age!
Crank up those subpoena presses dammit. Not one piece of legislation should MOVE until this rats nest has been ferreted out. Take a freaking STAND for crying out loud! Got those gloves off and grow a set!
I now have my phone calls lines up to my Congressman and Senator for today.
The IRS - End It, Don’t Mend It.
Well Ms. ODonnell if you don’t join the ACLJ’s suit against the IRS and do nothing...don’t expect anything.
Either side will, which is why the founders sought to limit power.
That is why the Left can not be trusted with an NSA surveillance society.
I don't trust ANYONE with a surveillance society--especially one which ignores the Constitution.
Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.
I don't personally know her, so I can't comment. That both the MSM and GOPe tried to present her as 'flaky' doesn't mean she was, as both have united to present someone who threatened the status quo power structure before. Neither wants TEA party candidates to win.
If you are a conservative, the GOP is not your friend.
The ‘idea’ has already been lost.
“Freedom” means the right to kill your baby, and the “right” to healthcare and the “right” to have whatever you want at someone else’s expense.
Government has become god.
‘Liberty’ as intended is now seen as harsh, cruel, intolerant and ‘old’. Liberty has been redefined as ‘freedom’ for government to do stuff on behalf of the collective.
We cannot be at ‘war’ with our oppressors when we limit ‘war’ to fighting on their turf, on their terms in a system they have corrupted to benefit themselves and punish their enemies.
We cannot be at war with them when we already surrendered the culture and the language to them and refused to fight them by calling them and their ideas what they were at every encounter.
So we already ‘lost’ the war - and now they rule us.
What war is going to come, is going to be a war to survive with what is left of your liberty.
There are no longer any other options - we waited too long, and lost the country to the enemy. We are now occupied.
That’s the raw fact and truth, if you can handle it.
Out-of-control government seems to be the forte of the American people and has been for so long now.
I don’t think you have to know a politician personally to have a pretty good sense of who they are. I thought she was flaky from the first time I heard her, which was when Mark Levin had her on his show around the time she declared her candidacy. I knew something about her wasn’t quite right almost immediately, and nothing afterwards changed my mind about her. The GOP is a mixed bag like everything else.
This is worse than Watergate. But the media will say ho-hum.
O’Donnell is actually conservative and that is what we need. However, her past personal history was questionable and that is what did her in.
“We may safely assume that the Tax Records of every 0bama opponent were, are, and will be breached”
UNDERSTAND SOMETHING, FOLKS....
Every 2014/2016 R/I candidate is going to have to assume that the Dem opponent is getting a transcript of every phone call they make, every email they send,everything they look at on the internet, and will have copies of your tax records, medical records, etc., and that it will be used against you. All provided by the Obamunists in the government.
This is going to be like campaigning in 1936 Germany, folks. I hope they are ready for it.
HISTORY IS REPEATING....
“Liberty as intended is now seen as harsh, cruel, intolerant and old. Liberty has been redefined as freedom for government to do stuff on behalf of the collective.”
We have lost control of the LANGUAGE, as George Orwell predicted we would. This process was begun by the Chomsky/Zinn types 30+ years ago, and we just sat on our asses while they did it. Now it will be our children who pay the price for that.
"There is now a blanket of intimidation over the country that discourages going on record against Obama and his fellow totalitarians."
See you at the concentration camps. We shall all have a merry time.
There's been a lot worse...a lot worse. I don't see what was so bad. She was so terrible she knocked out a political powerhouse inside the party. She was very popular on the political talk show circuit for quite some time. You seem to accept the tarnishing of a candidate by idiots like Karl Rove.
I would have voted for her in a second over Castle because the last thing we need is another far left leaning Senator in our caucus. We can handle moderates but not leftists.
That said, your point has nothing to do with this issue. Once again, the bureaucracy is allowing private information of citizens to get out. This never happened pre-Obama. It was not even a thought that the IRS was capable of releasing private info. Our side cannot win if the cards are stacked against us with the government infrastructure being able to find and leak private emails, phone calls, tax records, etc. There is always going to be an activist leftist who can grab data to destroy any person. Starting with the state of Ohio leaking Joe the Plumbers info after his taped conversation with Obama.
