From CNN Political Editor Mark Preston
Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council has asked followers to refrain from donating to the RNC.

(CNN) – The head of an influential social conservative organization urged supporters Wednesday to stop donating to the Republican National Committee and instead contribute to its own coffers or to candidates with like-minded goals.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, made the plea in his "Washington Update" column posted on the organization's Web site following the revelation that the RNC paid for a night out at a risqué Hollywood nightclub.

"I've hinted at this before, but now I am saying it - don't give money to the RNC," Perkins wrote in his column. "If you want to put money into the political process, and I encourage you to do so, give directly to candidates who you know reflect your values. Better yet, become a member of FRC Action and learn about the benefits it offers, including participating in the FRC Action PAC which can support candidates who will advance faith, family and freedom!"

Perkins is the latest social conservative leader to openly criticize RNC Chairman Michael Steele for allowing the controversial expenditure to happen under his watch. Former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pennsylvania, and Penny Nance, the head of Conservative Women for America, both publicly questioned Steele's leadership after the nightclub story mushroomed into a major headache for the RNC.

"If the RNC wants to represent conservatives and the Republican Party, then they have to act like conservatives - in a moral, fiscal and ethical manner," Nance said. "When RNC officials seem to think it wise to spend a grandmother's monthly donation on wooing the younger generation by taking them to a bondage-themed sex club instead of helping to elect a conservative, a real problem exists."

The RNC has emphasized that Steele was not at the club, nor did he approve of the expense. The staffer who did has since been fired.

Two things -

1. I don't need him to tell me not to donate to the RNC. I quit doing that years ago when they so obviously crawled into bed with K street lobbyists.

2. Notice the bias of the article. "Followers." Not supporters. FOLLOWERS. :rolleyes:

Steele crapped in his drawers when he dissed the Tea Party followers. Perkins is right on target.

um...he's a RINO for one, he's pissing away all the money that the RNC has collected in the last year (had 20 mil on hand when he took over as RNC Chair, collected 96 mil and NOW has 10 mil on hand).

He's bashed both the movement and Rush in the last year. and is generally an arrogant prick.

Even if the Strip club thing wasn't directly his fault, it still happened under is watch and the RNC put rules in place that any expenditure over 200k, has to be approve specifically because of his lack of handling the RNC's money.

He needs to be removed from the Chairmanship before he does any more damage to the GOP, like yesterday.

They should put Sarah Palin in as Chairman. That would unite a lot of people and bring in tons of money. And she'd be extremely tight with the purse strings. That's the role she could best fill right now if you ask me.
