Kellyanne Conway, a Republican consultant, explains in an email to me why the RNC owes her $15,000 and notes: “None of my work included bondage.”
RNC owes me nearly $15K for past work and expenses, none of which were incurred since Steele became Chairman, and about half of which they said they might pay. None of my work included bondage – just boring old polls and focus groups – or trips to wineries masked as expenses. My expenses were for (coach, commercial) airfare for some of the many times I flew around the country at the RNC request to address the party faithful, buck-up the grassroots, or train activists. All the while their favorite consultants sat inside the beltway raking in millions and losing 55 congressional seats in 2006 and 2008. And there still at it.
My bills should be paid, but my concern about the financial management at the RNC is focused more on the octogenarian widows who send in 50 bucks here and there believing their money will be put to good use.
Important to note that I am not one of the folks calling for Steele to resign. He was put there by the 168 or so voting members of the RNC and he would need to be removed by them. The leader of the Republican Party is its people anyway.
