RNC contributors must be very happy

I know that when I contribute to a political Party or candidate I would like to think that my money is going to serve that Party or candidate.

 

Contributors to the RNC should keep an eye on the RNC and specifically on Michael Steele.

 

Nationaljournal.com reports that the RNC transferred $20K to the Northern Mariana Islands in the past 2 months.

 

Why would they do this? The Northern Mariana Islands have no voting members of Congress and no electoral votes to offer the GOP’s national candidates.

 

The reason according to some RNC critics is that they helped elect Michael Steele to his position at the RNC.

 

“Steele won his race to head the national GOP with backing from the committee’s 5 island constituencies”.

 

“Under RNC rules, each territory has as many voting members on the committee as a state, giving the Northern Mariana Islands as much sway over the committee as, say, TX or CA.”

 

“Traditionally, the islands vote as a bloc, and in early rounds of voting, that bloc mostly backed ex-MI GOP chair Saul Anuzis. But Anuzis dropped out after 5 ballots, and representatives of the island bloc met with both remaining candidates — Steele and ex-SC GOP chair Katon Dawson – to seek a deal.”

 

“Insiders said the islands sought a financial commitment from the eventual chair; Dawson refused, and the island votes went to Steele. ”

 

According hill.com ”the race (for RNC chairman) ultimately came down to several obscure island territories”. After five voting rounds “the final push that led to Steele’s win was the last-minute support of voters from the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the Virgin Islands, according to interviews with more than a dozen RNC members and aides to candidates.”

 

It sounds like payback to me, using funds from contributors.
