RNC Chief of Staff Resigns Amid Criticism

Ad Feedback

The Republican National Committee has lost another top official amid accusations of misspending donor funds, including nearly $2,000 at a strip club.

Chief of Staff Ken McKay resigned, Monday. Another staffer was fired when the criticism first surfaced.

Now, some are calling on RNC Chairman Michael Steele to step down as well, but he insists he's done nothing wrong and will stay.

In an internal memo Steele said, "Every minute spent on distractions is an unacceptable missed opportunity to do what you do best - taking back our country for the American people."

When asked if he was ready to resign, Steele replied, "No," and pointed out that people have been second-guessing him "since the day that I got the job."

Some critics have even called on supporters to stop giving directly to the RNC.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is encouraging Republicans to turn their attention away from mistakes being made in the party and instead, look at what's important -- winning back Congress.

"It's foolish for Republicans to focus on Michael Steele as a person and it's better to focus on Democrats," he said.
