RNC Chairman Steele Under Federal Probe For 2006 Campaign

Bwahahahaha. Same old, same old.

Federal authorities are examining whether Michael S. Steele, the newly elected chairman of the Republican National Committee, violated any laws in his handling of money raised for his 2006 Senate race and an earlier campaign.

The inquiry, which in recent days led federal agents to approach Steele's sister, stems from accusations last year by the finance chairman for Steele's failed Senate bid. Among the allegations was that Steele paid a defunct company run by his sister for campaign services that were never performed.

But remember he likes puppies.
