Update 2:30 p.m.: Powerline’s Scott Johnson relays this from Ellmers campaign staffer Lorie Byrd:
“We asked the NRCC for help after the election and they said they did not have funds to provide to us for the recount. We have received no money from them. Thankfully, late yesterday afternoon Chairman Steele personally called the campaign and committed money from the RNC toward the recount. Also yesterday afternoon we received pledges of donations from many of the NC delegation of representatives including Congressman Walter Jones, who has been a big supporter of Renee from back even during the primary. We have now received pledges of support from other sitting members of Congress outside of NC as well. The response we have gotten from individuals online has been wonderful, thanks in great part to all the bloggers who have stepped up to inform their readers about the situation. We can use all the help we can get so any additional efforts to alert readers to the campaign’s recount fund are very much appreciated.”
So, the much-maligned and cash-poor Michael Steele comes through while the NRCC cries poverty. What’s up with that?

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
