(CNN) – The Republican National Committee has come under fire in the past for its lavish spending on limousines and private jets, and more recently for picking up a nearly $2,000 tab for an outing at a strip club near Los Angeles.
Tony Perkins, a prominent conservative and president of the Family Research Council, is now urging people not to donate to the RNC. He writes, in part:
"...the RNC is completely tone-deaf to the values and concerns of a large number of people from whom they seek financial support. ... If you want to put money into the political process ... give directly to candidates who you know reflect your values."
Perkins joined us on Thursday's American Morning to explain more about why he is urging people to stop giving money to the RNC.
