Clip: O'Donnell Says She Nixed Being Hare Krishna

Friday, 01 Oct 2010 11:50 PM

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell says with a laugh that she tried several religions but skipped becoming a Hare Krishna because she didn't want to be vegetarian in a 1999 interview.

Maher aired the clip of O'Donnell Friday night on his show "Real Time with Bill Maher." The short clip was from an interview on the comedian's former show "Politically Incorrect" from July 9, 1999.

O'Donnell tells Maher that she had dabbled in "every other kind of religion," including witchcraft and Buddhism, before becoming a Christian.

With a laugh, she said: "I would have become a Hare Krishna, but I didn't want to become a vegetarian. And that is honestly the reason why, because I'm Italian and I love meatballs."

It's the third clip of O'Donnell that Maher has shown since she won her state's GOP primary last month.

Reached by phone, O'Donnell campaign spokesman Chris Merola had no immediate comment.
