Steele Facing Threat To His Financial Control Of RNC

Wisconsin GOP chairman Reince Priebus, a Steele supporter, is circulating a letter warning against "this hostile attempt to embarrass and neuter the chairman of the RNC."

Steele has already lost one fight going into the special May 20 RNC meeting: Sufficient signatures have been gathered to vote on a resolution calling for the Democratic Party to be renamed the "Democrat Socialist Party," even though Steele had already advised against it.
