The Tea Party types claim they are about fiscal responsibility.
And yet they are gaga over Christine O'Donnell, their candidate in the Delaware Senate race.
O'Donnell is famous for not paying her mortgage, or her college tuition bills.
But, hey, in a down economy this sometimes happens. Her heart is in the right place, right?
But what about 2008, when she was also running for the Senate?
Keegan, whose job was to oversee the campaign budget, said he repeatedly clashed with O'Donnell over expenses.
He said O'Donnell's phone service got cut off because she had failed to keep up with her payments, forcing her to trek to relatives’ homes to make campaign calls.
"It was always a misunderstanding," he said, describing her explanation when he would confront her about the recurring problems.
When O'Donnell wanted to place an order for hundreds of campaign T-shirts, Keegan said, she asked him to put the charge on his personal credit card.
"I said, ‘No, how are we going to pay for them? Her famous quote was always, 'have them invoice it.' "
Have them invoice it.
Dodge responsibility. Let somebody else eat the bill. Push the debt onto someone else. It's all about me.
Have them invoice it. Sarah Palin and the Tea Party people should be ashamed of themselves.
