The campaign for former Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell has filed amendments to fundraising reports filed in 2009 and 2010 with a lawyer blaming computer software for mistakes on them.
The Delaware Republican also filed her fundraising report for the first quarter of this year. The amendments and the 2011 report became public Thursday at the Senate Office of Public Records.
O'Donnell _ a tea party favorite who lost to Democrat Chris Coons in November _ has faced scrutiny over her campaign practices.
In a memo to the Federal Election Commission, lawyer Cleta Mitchell wrote that because of a software problem, receipts and payments that should have been linked to the 2010 primary were mistakenly linked to the general election. Mitchell says the campaign amended the reports because of that and other mistakes that were found.
