O'Donnell's mother on campaign payroll

(CNN) – A spokesman for Republican Christine O'Donnell's Senate campaign is suggesting nothing improper was committed when it paid out funds to O'Donnell's mother, Carole, earlier this year.

"Carole O'Donnell, Christine's mother, did receive money for her services rendered on accounting and the FEC reporting for the campaign before the treasurer came onto the campaign," a spokesman told CNN Friday.

As first reported by The Daily Beast, records filed with the Federal Elections Commission show the campaign paid $3,500 to Carole O'Donnell between February and July of this year. The expenses are listed under "bookkeeping" and "financial consulting services."
