The RNC must be wondering exactly who is vetting their State Party Chairs. First we had Louisiana Chair Senator David Vitter, [R-andy] showing up in DC Madam's not so Little Black Book.

Then we have McCain's Florida CoChair Bob Allen [R-ogered] hangin in the Men's room for a little one on one with Florida's finest.
And NOW we have Rudy's South Carolina Chairman Thomal Ravenel [R-eally High] busted on Cocaine charges.
CNN) â€“ Saying he was â€śdeeply sorryâ€ť to his family and the state, South Carolina Treasurer Thomas Ravenel resigned from office Tuesday on the day he faces cocaine charges in court.
The former state chairman for Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani was indicted June 19 on a federal charge of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. He resigned the position with Giuliani last month.
Leaving the federal courthouse in Columbia after a court appearance, Ravenel said, â€śIâ€™m deeply disappointed in myself for the circumstances surrounding my presence here today to due to the personal mistakes Iâ€™ve made in my life. I want to offer a heartfelt apology to South Carolina. To the people of South Carolina and to my family, I am deeply sorry.â€ť
The 44-year-old had been suspended from his elected position by Governor Mark Sanford in the wake of the indictment. Formally stepping down, Ravenel told reporters in a soft voice, â€śNow in the best interest of our state, I believe I must resign the position of Treasurer of the State of South Carolina, and I have so informed the Governor, effective today.â€ť
He took no questions as he walked to a car with his family at his side.
Tuesday was the first time Ravenel went before a judge. He has previously entered a not guilty plea through his attorneys while in rehabilitation.

Thank God this is the Family Values Party. I can't imagine what would happen if it were those loose Democrats. Maybe a blowjob or something.
