Castle Not Endorsing O'Donnell -- Because Of 'Personal Smears'


By "personal smears," Castle was probably referring to the way that some in the O'Donnell camp dealt in innuendo and rumors that he is gay. O'Donnell herself denied having any involvement with those rumors -- but did take a moment during a talk radio interview to attack him for his "un-manly" tactics, and also declared: "Mike this is not a bake-off, get your man-pants on."
