The Republican National Committee (RNC) faces scrutiny on its spending habits as new filings show that the RNC spent tens of thousands of dollars on jets, luxury hotels, and nightclubs.
Republican officials and donors are again criticizing how RNC Chairman Michael Steele is spending party funds.
The Washington Post writes:
The RNC's expenses, first highlighted by the Daily Caller, set off another round of GOP infighting over Steele, whose combative style and frequent pratfalls have earned him friends and enemies. The chairman angered many party insiders by releasing a book this year without notifying Republican leaders; he stumbled into another controversy this month after the leak of an RNC fundraising document featuring crude caricatures of President Obama and other Democratic leaders.
