Christine O'Donnell, a tea party favorite who ran for the Senate as a Delaware Republican in 2010, says her campaign turned nightmarish from the get-go when the IRS launched an investigation of her finances.

"On the very day that I announced my campaign, I was told by a federal investigator … that somebody who worked for the Department of Revenue accessed my tax records and on that same day, an erroneous tax lien was filed," O'Donnell told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"That tax lien was circulated all over the media. Two weeks later the IRS explained it away as a computer glitch, but it was still on my credit report, it was still all over the media."

Story continues below video.



O'Donnell lost the general election to Chris Coons by a margin of 57 percent to 40 percent for the seat vacated by Vice President Joe Biden.

O'Donnell has been trying to get to the bottom of the investigation ever since it emerged last year that the IRS had been targeting conservatives and tea party groups.

"We're getting stonewalled every step of the way and that's the frustrating thing," she said.

"The Department of Justice has acknowledged that criminal activity is going on, and yet they are refusing to prosecute … This is blatant criminal activity and if the tables were turned, they would be in jail."

O'Donnell says she has invested "tens of thousands of dollars" of her own money to fight the IRS' intrusion.
