Christine O'Donnell and her lawyer Richard Abbott have asked the U.S. Attorney for Delaware and the Department of Justice to commence an investigation and undertake any appropriate prosecution of the head of the ultra-liberal, George Soros financed, former Biden staffer run CREW and it's head Melanie Sloan for potential violations of Federal law.

Knowingly filing a false claim is clearly a federal offense, as is Mail Fraud and Wire Fraud [from pg. 2 of the Abbott letter]:

Under Title 18, § 1001 of the United States Code, it is a crime for a person to knowingly and willfully make “any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation” in “any matter within the jurisdiction of the Executive, Legislative, or Judicial Branch of the government of the United States.” The CREW Complaint to the FEC and your office constitute matters which are in the jurisdiction of the U.S. Government.

It should also be noted that the September 20, 2010 letter from Ms. Sloan to your office contends that Ms. O’Donnell committed certain crimes. Specifically, Ms. Sloan alleged that Ms. O’Donnell “violated 2 U.S.C § 439(a)(b) and § 437(g)(b)(1)(A)(ii),” and knowingly and willfully…[committed a] violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001.” To the extent that the mails or interstate wire communications were involved with the filings made by CREW and Ms. Sloan, there also could be violations of the Federal Criminal Code provisions governing Mail Fraud and Wire Fraud, 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341 and 1343. The September, 2010 submission to your office purports to be made via facsimile transmission. Follow-up communications with your office may have been submitted by means of the U.S. Postal Service.

Additionally, CREW's complaining witness in their legal filing is identified as Leonard S. Togman, described as a "registered voter in Delaware". What CREW did not disclose to the FEC, the DoJ, the news media, or the public at the time (or since) is that Leonard Togman is the father of Melanie Sloan, thus undermining the very independence of the complaint's origin, and again proving the hyper-partisan, ultra-liberal nature of CREW.
