Christine O’Donnell’s claims vs. the facts: Join the live chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

What you might not know about the Tea Party sensation of the moment, Delaware's GOP Senatorial nominee Christine O'Donnell. She’s trailing her opponent badly in a poll out today, but crushing him in the money race, claiming close to a million dollars in contributions in the last 24 hours alone. But as the money flows in, we’re also learning more about how she spent some of the money left over from her former campaign as well as inconsistencies between some of her statements and the facts. Keeping them honest, we’ll be checking the rhetoric against reality.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    I'm going to go beyond politics and put my personal views of Paladino's politics aside when I say this: His view on abortion in cases of rape and incest are despicable. How dare he suggest that a woman who has been violated should carry the baby of her rapist to full term. it's despicable and disgusting that he should suggest that. I can't believe someone like that with those views are elected at all. I don't care if he is a conservative or liberal . . . That was completely disturbing.

    @Jo Ann,
    "Paladino thinks adoption is the only option for rape or incest? He just lost."

    He said some extreme things didn't he?
    That is REALLY out there! I must agree with your conclusion.

    The defense attorney is just doing his job and grabbing at straws as your panel said. Sometimes it must be very difficult to be a lawyer.
