Steele Wins, Investigation Begins

Put this in the category of things that were bound to happen. Barely a week after he was elected Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michael Steele is under investigation by federal prosecutors for questionable campaign expenditures. The spending, which included a $37,000 payment to a then-dissolved company owned by Steele’s sister, annoyed even Bob Ehrlich.

I almost feel sorry for self-proclaimed “Steele Republicans.” But all of this could have been avoided if RNC members had known of Steele’s past behavior. After all, who could trust a guy who put out this?
