    Man and I thought Pelosi's booze budget was bad.

    Re: RNC Chairman Steele Spent a LOT of money

    I was once encouraged by Michael Steele taking over the top GOP spot but he has proved to be less than forceful and not much of Conservative at a time when we need someone with leadership skills and the brains and guts to get things done and inspire people to action.


    Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.

    According to two knowledgeable sources, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele once raised the possibility of using party money to buy a private jet for his travel.

    “I know that … regular ongoing use of planes was something that was looked at,” says one person with direct knowledge. “I can’t speak to how serious those inquiries were.” Both sources say Steele considered purchasing a plane outright, or buying fractional ownership in one, through a company such as NetJets.
    Steele’s spokesman, Doug Heye, did not deny that such discussions took place, responding that the RNC never had a “plan” to buy a plane. “I don’t know what somebody might have discussed or might not have discussed.”
    While Steele has not purchased a plane, he continues to charter them. According to federal disclosure records, the RNC spent $17,514 on private aircraft in the month of February alone (as well as $12,691 on limousines during the same period). There are no readily identifiable private plane expenses for Democratic National Committee chairman Tim Kaine in the DNC’s last three months of filings.

    The RNC explains that Steele charters jets only when commercial service is unavailable, or when his tight schedule requires it. “Anytime the chairman has taken any private travel has been a either to a route that doesn’t exist or because of connections and multiple travel to where he just wasn’t able to do so,” Heye said. Yet Steele’s office repeatedly refused to explain in specific terms the circumstances of the February charter flights.

    Once on the ground, FEC filings suggest, Steele travels in style. A February RNC trip to California, for example, included a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the nearby Four Seasons, and $1,620.71 spent [update: the amount is actually $1,946.25] at Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.

    This is just wrong. Democrats are the party animals. Republicans are supposed to hide it, then when caught, proclaim that they are not gay.

    i'm on some of their direct mail lists. i patiently answer the survey's, and then print that exact message in all-caps across their request for donation and mail it right back in.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Steele is one of those family values hypocrites. When are the conservatives going to "tea bag" him and Vitter for being a disgrace? The tea party protesters talk about cleaning out the congress, but they need to start with their own party before they try to catch the bigger fish.

It's a common sense attack against those who believe they have superior moral values... then they do not.
    Thank you! Well stated. That is exactly why the story is of interest.
