The disclosure reports of a national political party reveal that Santa has been paid for “travel expenses.”
The campaign finance reports of the Republican National Committee (RNC) show that travel reimbursements in July, August and October were paid to Santa at the RNC headquarters. The payments were to Izzy Santa. Santa said she “has been working here in secret” and she is in real life the media coordinator in the RNC press office. She was at work Monday and took a quick break to answer the phone.
We are sure she travels to both red and blue states.
