So Rusty, So Soon
Ada Fisher, one of only three black members of the Republican National Committee, is asking Michael Steele to step down as RNC chairman.
In an e-mail to fellow RNC members obtained by The Hill, Dr. Ada Fisher, North Carolina’s national committeewoman, said Steele is “eroding confidence” in the GOP and that members of his transition team should encourage him to step aside. Fisher added Steele’s personal e-mail address to the e-mail.
“I don’t want to hear anymore [sic] language trying to be cool about the bling in the stimulus package or appealing to D.L. Hughley and blacks in a way that isn’t going to win us any votes and makes us frankly appear to many blacks as quite foolish,” Fisher wrote.
As reporter Reid Wilson notes, Fisher had backed the very white Katon Dawson over Steele, sticking with him through the final ballot.
