Dela-What?! How to help defeat Christine O'Donnell from your computer

]She crusaded to 'cure' gays through prayer, insinuated her primary opponent was gay, supported a group who smeared an openly gay Ambassador candidate, thinks the government spent too much fighting AIDS, and called homosexuality an "identity disorder."  She's Christine O'Donnell, the Republican nominee for Senate in Delaware – and Chris Coons is the only person standing in her way. Chris Coons is an innovative, twice-elected county executive and a steadfast supporter of equality who has pledged to be a voice for fairness in the Senate. We can't afford for him to lose. In the 1990's, O'Donnell founded an organization which sought to cure homosexuality and "sexual brokenness" through prayer – a practice debunked as harmful by the American Psychological Association. And only four years ago, she said, "Homosexuality is an identity adopted through societal factors. It's an identity disorder."  With every step she takes toward the United States Senate, Christine O'Donnell's fringe, hateful views threaten to become more legitimized. What's worse, she could win: In the two weeks since she upset a popular incumbent congressman in the Republican primary, she's raised $2.6 million. Heard enough? Click here to help Chris Coons.
