Last week was terrible for our beloved Michael Steele, getting heat from all sides for inappropriate expenditures and for being a doofus. There's nothing he can do about being a doofus (that condition is permanent), but surely he can hire somebody to help him spend his money more wisely? Take it away Washington Post:
Neil S. Alpert, whom the District fined three years ago for improperly spending money from a political action committee he chaired, has been hired by the Republican National Committee to help with its fundraising.
Alpert, whose new role was reported Sunday by AOL's Politics Daily, will serve as a special assistant for finance to RNC Chairman Michael S. Steele.
I report these things only because it's easier than making them up.
UPDATE: More on Mr. Alpert here, including the wonderful phrase "a welter of nausea."
