(LOS ANGELES) -- Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell admitted in a 1999 television appearance to dabbling in several religions -- including witchcraft and Buddhism -- but said she skipped being a Hare Krishna because she couldn't give up meat.
On Friday Bill Maher aired on his HBO show, "Real Time," the clip from his previous show, "Politically Incorrect."
"I would have become a Hare Krishna, but I didn't want to become a vegetarian," she said. "And that is honestly the reason why, because I'm Italian and I love meatballs."
O'Donnell appeared on the political talk show on 22 different episodes, and Maher has said he will air an embarrassing clip of O'Donnell every week until she agrees to appear on his show. This latest video is the third in his series of unflattering clips.
Maher and O'Donnell made headlines when the talk show host released a clip of O'Donnell claiming that evolution is a myth. That video came a week after another "Politically Incorrect" clip, the now infamous footage of O'Donnell admitting to experimenting with witchcraft.
