GOP senate nominee O'Donnell under scrutiny surrounding campaign finances

Authorities will be urged to investigate Senate hopeful Christine O'Donnell's use of campaign funds, says a bipartisan watchdog group Saturday, according to CNN.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington claim that O'Donnell used more than $20,000 of campaign funds illegally in 2009 and 2010, using the money for personal expenses like rent and gas payments, while claiming the funds as campaign expenses, according to CNN.

The group will notify the U.S. Attourney's Office in Delaware and the Federal Elections Commission on Monday, asking them to investigate the claims, according to CNN. Representatives for O'Donnell had no comment, and the GOP candidate cancelled TV appearances on "Face the Nation" and "Fox News Sunday" for this Sunday, according to MSNBC.
