The Hill is reporting that one RNC member is calling on Michael Steele to step down as chairman barely a month into his tenure.

Josh Marshall has a few background details on the RNC member, who is one out of only three African Americans on the national committee.

From a PR standpoint, the past few weeks have been a series of self-inflicted gaffes for Michael Steele, culminating with his apology to Rush Limbaugh, which was politically embarrassing for him and the party at large. Add to this the fact that his campaign expenses from the 2006 Maryland Senate race are now in question, and you have some nervous Republicans with preliminary stages of buyer’s remorse.
