WASHINGTON - The second-ranking GOP senator is distancing
himself from the national party chairman after the recent news that the party spent nearly $2,000 at a sex-themed nightclub in California.

Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl says he didn't elect Michael Steele as Republican National Committee chairman so he can't say whether he thinks Steele should step down. But Kyl tells "Fox News Sunday" that "this kind of thing has got to stop or they won't get any contributions."

The RNC has fired a staffer who helped organize the Jan. 31 visit to Voyeur Hollywood West. The RNC has said it would recoup the money from a donor who paid the tab.

Party officials have said Steele knew nothing of the nightclub visit by a group of young Republicans.
