Steele Considered Buying Private Plane

Two knowledgeable sources tell the Daily Caller that RNC chairman Michael Steele "once raised the possibility of using party money to buy a private jet for his travel."

"While Steele has not purchased a plane, he continues to charter them. According to federal disclosure records, the RNC spent $17,514 on private aircraft in the month of February alone (as well as $12,691 on limousines during the same period). There are no readily identifiable private plane expenses for Democratic National Committee chairman Tim Kaine in the DNC's last three months of filings."

Another questionable expense: $1,946.25 at Voyeur West Hollywood, "a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex."
