RNC Treasurer: Steele Hid $7M Debt

Michael Steele probably has a bright career ahead of him on Wall Street once he’s done at the Republican National Committee: RNC Treasurer Randy Pullen has accused Steele of intentionally hiding a $7 million debt from the FEC in order to make the RNC’s finances look better headed into November. Pullen says he discovered a $3.3 million debt from April and a $3.8 million debt from May and had to amend the RNC’s FEC filing. RNC officials deny any wrongdoing on the part of Steele or his chief of Staff Michael Leavitt.
