After the director of the Republican National Committee’s Young Eagles program was fired last week following the bondage club spending scandal, some suggested that the RNC was moving on. Apparently not.

The committee’s chief of staff, Ken McKay, resigned last night and his departure apparently prompted senior adviser Curt Anderson to also call it quits. Now the focus turns back to chairman Michael Steele.

Steele maintains he’s not going anywhere, but the possibility of an exit is the talk of the blogs, the MSM and even some Republicans this morning. And Steele’s actions in the wake of the scandal haven’t exactly bolstered his standing. Since the scandal broke, Steele hired Neil Alpert to handle RNC finances (Alpert was charged with campaign finance improprieties when he chaired two D.C. baseball associations) and commented on national television that “he and President Obama have a slimmer margin of error because of their race,” a remark that drew a rebuke from the White House.

Perhaps Steele should re-read the email he circulated last night.

“Every minute spent on distractions is an unacceptable missed opportunity to do what you do best – taking back our country for the American people.”
