O'Donnell Makes Light of Witchcraft Comment

Sunday, 19 Sep 2010 04:32 PM


LINCOLN, Del. — Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell is making light of comments she made more than a decade ago about having dabbled in witchcraft.

During an appearance Sunday at a GOP picnic in southern Delaware, O'Donnell said she was in high school when she dabbled in witchcraft. She asked the audience: "How many of you didn't hang out with questionable folks in high school?"

O'Donnell, a conservative Christian activist, won the GOP Senate primary last week with the help of tea party supporters. Her comments about witchcraft were made during an episode of comedian Bill Maher's "Politically Incorrect" show.

A clip hit the Internet as O'Donnell canceled Sunday appearances on two national news shows. Her campaign said she had to back out because the news shows conflicted with her Delaware schedule.
