Healy: RNC Renegotiates Loan Payments

Connecticut GOP chairman Chris Healy summarizes the RNC winter meeting’s first-day proceedings on his blog, “Make Blue Red.” RNC treasurer Randy Pullen has negotiated some relief from the $5 million note due at the end of next month. “Under the new agreement, that nut will be due February 29, 2012 but the committee will be on the hook for $375,000 in interest costs,” Healy writes. “The other two $5 million notes are due June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2012.”

Healy also says that the budget committee approved a $29 million budget for 2011, though not without some debate. Texas GOP chairman Steve Munistieri, for instance, wanted the chairman and co-chairman’s salaries to be cut “to reflect the reality of a lean year.” The committee rejected those proposed cuts but budget chairman Louis Pope, the committeeman from Maryland, said the chairman and political office’s budgets were reduced significantly.

These two groups are spoiling for a fight, but I always thought Warner Bros. and I got along pretty well. What did I do to deserve the tidal wave of garbage that is Aquaman itself? I refuse to ...
