Christine O'Donnell is (or, at least, was) famously anti-masturbation, and she's never been married—so she must still be a virgin, right? Maybe not, at least according to a Yahoo! News report. It offers up a look at O'Donnell's past, including a $6.9 million gender discrimination lawsuit she filed and then dropped against a former employer, and the diploma she was supposed to have earned in 1993, but didn't receive (for either tuition-related or coursework-related reasons, it's unclear) until this month. But the most interesting news is yet to come.

O'Donnell apparently told the Wilmington News Journal in 2004 that she did "things she regrets" in college, including drinking a lot and becoming sexually promiscuous. (Wonkette tried to find the original article and couldn't. Click here for the full quote, which declares O'Donnell actually did have sex.) In other news, NPR delves into her 2008 home foreclosure, IRS audit, and tax lien; Yahoo! News points to another controversial video clip from 1998 in which she says lying is wrong—even to protect someone (watch clip in the gallery); and AOL News notes that she appears to claim she studied at Oxford in her LinkedIn profile—but did she really?
