On Friday, The Washington Post reported that the new Republican Party chairman had authorized payment to his sister for services that were never performed.

Michael S. Steele, the newly elected chairman of the Republican National Committee, arranged for his 2006 Senate campaign to pay a defunct company run by his sister for services that were never performed, his finance chairman from that campaign has told federal prosecutors.

Appearing on ABC, Steele denied the charges. "It's all false," he argued. "This is not the way I intend to run the RNC with this over my head," said Steele.
