Randy Pullen, the RNC’s elected treasurer, former RNC General Counsel David Norcross and three other former top RNC officers have presented Mr. Steele with a resolution, calling for a new set of checks and balances on the chairman’s power to dole out money.
The powers include new controls on awarding contracts and spending money on outside legal and other services.
For shit’s sake, Republicans. Stop stepping on eachother’s toes.
Clearly this was done for one reason, to embarrass Steele. Now, you may or may not support Steele. After all, he lost NY-20, right? (of course, we’ll ignore that the NY-20 seat was won by 40,000 votes in 2008…and was lost in the special by 400).
First and foremost, Pullen and Cross knew that this effort would make news and throw a wrench in Steele’s efforts as Chairman. All this despite the RNC far outraising the DNC and Republicans holding solid leads in the NJ and VA Gov races coming up in the Fall.
Checks and balances? For a campaign organization? Ridiculous. Campaign organizations need to move fast and efficiently. Slowing down the process will only present more challenges in our effort to regain power.
Lay off. Steele won. Accept it and let him do his job.
