The Republican whisper campaign to remove its own leader gets louder:

Steele May Face No Confidence Vote

Republican insiders tell Political Wire that a no confidence vote on RNC Chairman Michael Steele is likely to be called after the NY-20 special election on March 31 — regardless of whether Republicans win the seat or not.

Katon Dawson, who came in second in the January RNC vote, is said to be quietly organizing a vote and is getting the support of several state party chairmen who want to dump Steele.

Now, Steele really is muffing things up, starting with the fact that he appears to more interested in doing TV appearances than hiring staff.

But the bigger picture is this: The Republican party is setting to dump its first African-American leader mere weeks into his tenure in favor of Katon Dawson, a member of an all-white country club.

Says a lot, doesn't it?
