No sooner did Wisconsin GOP chairman Reince Priebus emerge as a leading rival to Michael Steele for chairmanship of the Republican National Committee than Priebus got hit by the revelation that his Milwaukee law firm helped its clients get federal stimulus funds.

Interestingly, the revelation seemed to hit Priebus almost simultaneously from two different ideological directions -- the stimulus story being reported Tuesday by both Tim Mak at the "centrist" Web site Frum Forum and by conservative Dan Riehl at Andrew Brietbart's BigGovernment.com.
