Apparently, you can start practising those Republican moral values at an early age:
The young Nevada man designated to chair the upcoming 2005 Young Republican National Convention in Las Vegas has been accused of embezzling registration fees from around the country to pay off bar tabs, personal loans and credit card debts.
Nevada's national committeeman for Young Republicans filed a criminal complaint Monday with the Reno Police Department alleging Nathan Taylor received more than $25,000 in registration fees and donations through his corporation, YRNC 2005, and spent almost all of it in the past year for personal use...
The complaint also includes a bank statement showing withdrawals from the YRNC 2005 account at Bully's bar in Carson City, at a PF Chang's restaurant, at Shell Oil, at Mandalay Bay and twice for $200 in cash during a 30-day period.
And when you're busted, as a member of the "personal responsibility and accountability" party, well, there's only one course of action:
Taylor, 29, who said he is a political science student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, denies all accusations.
"I'm sure you understand it's politics," Taylor said. "There's a personal grudge against me that is being portrayed against me and that corporation."
So, quick review of the landscape so far. Prostitutes? Check. Pornographic web sites? Check. Embezzlement? Check. Blowjobs? No blowjobs? We're good, then.
DAMN: I had already posted this piece before I noticed that Kos had done it as well. Sigh.
