    WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee has fired a staffer who helped organize a $1,946 visit last month to a sex-themed Hollywood club, and the GOP says it will recoup the money from a donor who also participated.

    The episode is the latest in a string of questionable spending by the RNC as Republicans prepare for a costly election season in which they hope to take dozens of House and Senate seats from Democrats.

    LOL!

    You all have your knickers in a twist over the incident - and then get the vapors when someone is actually held accountable.

    How precious.

    Where else do you expect the GOP to find new voters?

    Why does the media report on this but not on things that are truly important to everyday Americans such as what another thread was discussing; why the student loan take over was included in the healthcare bill, but the doctor fix was not.

    Why is it that no one cares about what the media cherry picks to report on.

    Why do you care?

    Why do you not care about the student loan takeover in the healthcare bill, but you care about this?

    I noticed you did not comment in the student loan thread but you did in this thread.

    Do you prefer a divided country? Do you not care about legislation that may or may not be in your best interest?

    Or are you just partisan, and you look to capitalize on whatever you can to ensure a one party system.

    Do you not care for the two party system?

    They are trying to distract us from the Economic Armageddon being wrought by Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their Congressional Minions.
