RNC employees forged finance director's signature on Voyeur reimbursement
A good rule to follow: When Ralph Z. Hallow files a story on the RNC, drop what you're doing and read it. In today's piece Hallow thumbs through an internal investigation of RNC finance problems and uncovers why, exactly, the committee approved that reimbursement for a party at a West Hollywood nightclub.
The report says several RNC Finance Department employees have been forging [Finance Director Rob] Bickhart's signature for reimbursement for the purchase of clothing, wine and entertainment expenses, including some that were labeled as office supplies.
One such expense was the nearly $2,000 that a Finance Department employee named Allison Myers -- since fired -- received for money spent by a friend and non-employee at an Los Angeles nightclub that featured a sexual-bondage theme.
Read the whole thing, which suggests that the investigation launched after this scandal broke has been successful, if not in a way that covers Michael Steele with glory.
