Christine O'Donnell Reportedly Says, "I've Got Sean Hannity In My Back Pocket"

Reported by Ellen - October 14, 2010 -

Christine O'Donnell is not getting much support from the Republican Party. According to Howard Fineman, she has struck back by publicly complaining in an effort to motivate Tea Partyers to rally to her side - with cash, of course. Fineman reports that "two top GOP insiders" told him that O'Donnell "said at a strategy meeting with DC types last week: 'I've got Sean Hannity in my back pocket, and I can go on his show and raise money by attacking you guys.'"

Fineman continues, "And that was precisely what she was doing on the radio today. On Hannity's popular afternoon drive-time show, the Tea Party-inspired Senate contender acidly criticized the party, specifically the National Republican Senatorial Committee, for not funneling any serious cash (beyond a pro forma $43,000) into her race against Democrat Chris Coons."

Fineman noted that Hannity "expressed sympathy with O'Donnell's fiscal plight and gave a glowing review of her performance in last night's televised debate with Coons. Hannity criticized party insiders for not backing her with cash or endorsements."

But I've got to wonder whether O'Donnell didn't just alienate Hannity with her comments. What big time broadcaster wants to be portrayed as a pawn for a candidate, especially a candidate like O'Donnell?
