More RNC Spending: $340K on Hawaii Meeting

Spending has become a problem, at least in the eyes of some critics, for the Republican National Committee and its chairman after the Daily Caller stoked some controversy with its story on the Voyeur nightclub and Michael Steele's reported suggestion that the RNC purchase a private jet.


Hotline OnCall's Reid Wilson now reports that the RNC spent more than $340,000 at its semi-annual meeting, held in in Honolulu in January, according to Federal Election Commission reports filed yesterday.

Of that total, $167,000 was spend on facilities for the meeting, which lasted three days. The $340,000 did not include airfare, Wilson reports.

For a more complete rundown of how the $340,000 was spent, see Wilson's post at Hotline OnCall.
