DOVER, Del. (AP) — Former Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell says federal prosecutors have concluded a criminal investigation into a complaint that she used campaign money for personal use.
O'Donnell said in a Twitter posting Friday night that federal investigators had "slammed the door shut" on a complaint filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
Cleta Mitchell, an attorney for O'Donnell, said a letter from the U.S. attorney's office had been received late Friday.
U.S. Attorney Charles Oberle confirmed a letter had been sent to the O'Donnell camp, but he refused to provide any details, saying his office did not comment on the conclusion of cases.
O'Donnell has maintained that the accusations were politically motivated and stoked by disgruntled former campaign workers.
