Haw…haw…haw. Oh man, that was quite a laugh we were having over the RNC’s bondage-themed club scandal that erupted (blew its wad?) last week. We only just now stopped laughing it was so hilarious.
Well, hey, let’s see what’s in the old newspapers today. We’re pretty sure hip-hop impresario Michael Steele will just keep everything on the down low this week, maybe not try to be to flashy, right?
Neil S. Alpert, whom the District fined three years ago for improperly spending money from a political action committee he chaired, has been hired by the Republican National Committee to help with its fundraising.
Alpert, whose new role was reported Sunday by AOL’s Politics Daily, will serve as a special assistant for finance to RNC Chairman Michael S. Steele.
In 2007, the District’s Office of Campaign Finance found that Alpert improperly spent $37,670 on items that were not authorized by the D.C. Baseball PAC, which he chaired, or the D.C. Baseball Association, a nonprofit group that the PAC created to raise money for youth programs. He was asked to reimburse the groups, which were dissolved after Major League Baseball authorized a Washington franchise, and was fined $4,000.
Oh Michael Steele, you cad! If we didn’t know better, we’d think you were a Democrat pretending to be a Republican just for giggles and scandal. Don’t ever stop being you, Mr. Chairman!
Oh, and in a not-totally-unrelated story, Michael Steele blamed all his problems again today on racism.
