RNC Chairman Steele Denies Attending Bondage Sex Club

March 29, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Michael Steele, the gaffe-prone hip-hop Chairman of the Republican National Committee, is facing a new storm of controversy over his lavish expenditures of donors’ money. Last month he took heat for blowing through millions in donor funds by spending much more than previous chairmen on such necessities, as private jets, private limousines, flowers, fancy hotels and expensive meals from Wolfgang Puck. Now, he is being asked to explain a $1,946 reimbursed expense for meals at “Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.” The expenditure was first reported in a Daily Caller story, which suggested that Steele personally sought reimbursement for a night at the sex club. Steele denied attending the bondage club and attacked Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller for irresponsible journalism. It has since been reported that the nearly $2,000 expense was submitted by Erik Brown, president of Dynamic Marketing, Inc. Why Brown was reimbursed for such an expense from the RNC and who was in attendance during a night of wild bondage-lesbian sex revelry, remains to be answered.

According to the original report in the Daily Caller, Steel also considered purchasing a private plane for his lavish trips:

“According to two knowledgeable sources, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele once raised the possibility of using party money to buy a private jet for his travel.” [...] “While Steele has not purchased a plane, he continues to charter them. According to federal disclosure records, the RNC spent $17,514 on private aircraft in the month of February alone (as well as $12,691 on limousines during the same period). There are no readily identifiable private plane expenses for Democratic National Committee chairman Tim Kaine in the DNC’s last three months of filings. [...]

“Once on the ground, FEC filings suggest, Steele travels in style. A February RNC trip to California, for example, included a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the nearby Four Seasons, and $1,946.25 spent at Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.”

Hahah, well an RNC spokesman told Politico, “The story willfully and erroneously suggests that the expenditure in question was one belonging to the chairman,” the spokesperson said. “This was a reimbursement made to a noncommittee staffer. The chairman was never at the location in question; he had no knowledge of the expenditure; nor does he find the use of committee funds at such a location at all acceptable.”

A spokesman for the RNC has told CNN the nearly $2,000 spent at an LA sex club will be returned to the Party’s coffers, by Erik Brown. “The committee has received a commitment that the money will be returned,” the spokesman said.

Brown’s company Web site, is under construction, saying “stay tuned new site coming soon.” But other sources, describe DMI, as a California and Washington DC-based firm providing “services for corporations, political campaigns, issue advocacy groups, fundraising professionals, and various private concerns.”

And the Washington Post reports Bown has contributed to GOP candidates and may have attended a football game with Michael Steele:

“Brown has contributed nearly $10,000 to Republicans since 2007, including at least $1,500 to the RNC, records show. A Twitter account registered to a user of the same name also suggests Brown attended a football game in Washington on Oct. 26 with the committee chair: “Enjoying the football game with RNC Chairman Michael Steele. (Eagles vs Redskins at FedEx Field).”‘

That’s quite a night of debauchery for the “family values” party. Meanwhile it’s notable that the RNC has not denied the other allegations in the Daily Caller’s story, regarding a purchase of a private jet and excessive travel expenses.

    The best part is, it was a *gay* bondage club. All those “women” are transvestites!
