I guess the problem might be that your PATH has not been set when rc.local runs.
In this case try:
/usr/bin/python path-to-program.py &
instead (or the actual path to your python executable if it is not /usr/bin/python of course) .
I personally would prefer to put a #!/usr/bin/env python at the top of the script
and make it executable, so I could call it with just
(but that's probably just a matter of taste).
I hope this helped
