TheÂ Republican National Committee‘s top outreach official, hired to make help make the party younger and more diverse, hasn’t voted in a Republican primary election of any kind since before 2000,Â The Washington Times has learned.
But longtime Washington lobbyistÂ Angela Sailor, 42, and her political consultant husband,Â Elroy, 41, did vote in the 2008Â Virginia Democratic presidential primary, according to Prince William County election records.
Mr. Steele, who was expected to talk about his own future at theÂ RNClater Monday, raised eyebrows after his election in January 2009 when he announced the creation of anÂ RNC Department of Coalitionsand namedÂ Mrs. Sailor, a longtime friend, as its director.
The move generated more questions when it was learned thatÂ Mr. Steele had theÂ RNC set her salary at $180,000 a year, making her the highest-paid staff person. Her annual salary, not including benefits, is $40,000 more than the elected co-chairman of theÂ RNCreceives.
Reaction was heated in recent days among someÂ RNC members when told about her voting in the 2008 Democratic primary but not voting in any Republican primary in the previous seven years, at the least, according to county voting records.
