I wonder if most previous large non corporate donations have now gone to the various tea party organizations. The Koch brothers for one would I expect have been previously large benifactors to the RNC

In Utah, the republican governor was just re-elected. This is within weeks of his Dept of Transportation chief paying $13,000,000 dollars to an unsuccessful hiway project bidder...who apparently submitted the low bid. The winning bidder just happened to make a campaign contribution to the governor that day. A law suit was probably pending, so the UDOT chief made the payoff.
Governor claimed to know nothing about it (so he is either crooked or incompetent, or both), but a little research shows other contributions with similar connections to winning bidders. Seems the citizens would rather have a crooked republican for governor than an honest democrat....
Granted, the democrat contender is a bit flaky, but $13 million of the taxpayers money wasted? It is just another example of conservatives spending money like crazy, and expecting the citizens to pay for it.
Then they tell us how they plan on making government smaller and cheaper.

Was that job posted to the public? or does the RNC promote from within?
I wish I knew, if I could use a company expense account for such research I would be more then willing to work for nearly any company

That is BS. I would be mad so if my state wasted that much money. I hope you get it back or redirect it if possible. :(
