FEC Drops Complaint Against Christine O'Donnell

Jacquelyn Martin-Pool/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Christine O'Donnell didn't need to use any witchcraft to get the Federal Election Commission to make a complaint filed against her disappear.

An attorney for O'Donnell, the 2010 Republican candidate for a U.S. Senate seat in Delaware, said that she received word that the FEC "dismissed a complaint that was filed by the Delaware Republican Party."

It was alleged that O'Donnell, who lost her Senate bid to Democrat Chris Coons, was in cahoots with the Tea Party Express during the campaign, a possible violation of the election law.

O'Donnell tweeted Thursday that the allegation "was a frivolous, politically motivated move in the first place!"

The former candidate and one-time dabbler in witchcraft while in high school still faces another complaint filed with FEC that alleges she used campaign funds for personal expenses.  That accusation came from O'Donnell's former staff members.
