Ken McKay we hardly knew you:
Republican National Committee chief of staff Ken McKay has resigned in the wake of a controversy over an expenditure at a risque California nightclub, according to RNC communications director Doug Heye.
McKay's resignation comes one week after the Daily Caller website reported that the RNC's January expenditure report included nearly $2,000 spent at Voyeur in West Hollywood, a topless nightclub.
RNC officials worked to distance Steele from the controversy -- insisting that not only was he not in attendance but that he had no knowledge of the reimbursement -- and promised changes in the way that people were reimbursed by the committee.
I love that they are promising changes in the way that people are reimbursed. What are they going to do? Start a new policy that says "Rule 32.f: The RNC will not reimburse expenses incurred in or around lesbian-themed bondage nightclubs"? And if they do start a new policy like that, aren't they in effect admitting that their previous policy was to allow such expenses?
And what does this say about Michael Steele's management style? The he thinks the buck stops with everybody else?
