Michael Steele’s chairmanship of the RNC has been under scrutiny after revelations of problematic spending (like that staffer who spent $2,000 at a bondage-themed club) — but Steele thinks it’s the Democrats that need to account for themselves.

Steele sent out a fundraising e-mail today encouraging supporters to send President Obama, House Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid a “Taxpayers’ Audit.”

With tomorrow being Tax Day, we, the taxpayers, demand an accounting by the Obama Democrats’ government! Let Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid know you won’t tolerate any more of their abusive, corrupt policies of confiscation and spreading the wealth around by sending them a Taxpayers’ Audit today!

The RNC doesn’t appear to be offering any formal mechanism for the “audit.” Steele appears to just be encouraging general accountability — for the Dems.

And when you’re done sending the Dems your audit, the besieged chairman continues in his fundraising email, would you mind reaching into your wallet and sending the RNC some cash?
