Delaware Tea Party candidate for the U.S. Senate Christine O’Donnell once confessed on TV that she “dabbled” in witchcraft during the 1990s.
She made the admission to Bill Maher on his ABC television show, “Politically Incorrect,” back in 1999.
O’Donnell cancelled scheduled appearances on two Sunday morning TV talk shows after Maher played a clip of her witchcraft remarks on Friday.
She claimed she didn’t cancel because of the controversy, but because she wanted to attend church and then a GOP picnic, where she talked about the issue.
O’Donnell defeated the mainstream Republican candidate in last Tuesday’s primary election, Congressman Mike Castle. The Senate seat formerly held by Vice President Joe Biden is up for grabs in the November general election.
O’Donnell makes light of the controversy that’s erupted over her admitted dabbling in withcraft.
