RNC's $2,000 nightclub tab

The Republicans' monthly disclosure report to federal election officials included tens of thousands of dollars for rides on private jets and limos, but it was a consultant's night out with topless dancers that is raising eyebrows.

GOP leaders say what happened was wrong, the money will be repaid and it won't happen again. Our Tom Foreman has the report.

    way to go Michael Steele and the RNC!!! nothing says "we are the party of family values " like a 2k night out at a bondage strip club!!! heres what i need explained to me... if the government stopping the insurance companies from ripping us off is "socialism", what exactly is the governments involvement in our families mortality called?? the last group of people i'd want involved in my children's moral growth is politicians!!! the GOP is rotten to the core with hippocrates!!

    I think that Michael Steele is a terrific RNC Chairman. He is very intelligent, witty, and strategic.....he should keep his job through the next presidential election at least.

    This activity speaks for itself.....self gratifying, perverted "conservative" example of mal-aligned mentality. Take it for what it is....what you see is what you get.
