Here is a brief update on the RNC bondage-themed club story. As you know Michael Steele was not in attendance. However, we have learned who was there.
From Red County: The O.C. connection? As the Daily Caller story in that second link shows, DMI President and Gen Next member, Erik Brown, was who picked up that tab and ended up expensing it to the RNC.
According to sources who were in attendance that night, the “official” part of the evening started with 50+ person dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel, then carried on throughout the evening, eventually ending up at Voyeur. While RNC employees, who were in town to recruit members to its “RNC Young Eagles” program, did participate throughout the entire evening and did find their way to the bondage-themed club, Michael Steele himself was “not in attendance” for any portion of the evening. Brown, by the way, is reportedly a “Young Eagle” himself, a fundraising sub-group of the RNC which targets larger donors based on age group.
Presumably, the Daily Caller (which broke this whole story on its website earlier today) is continuing to pour through RNC disclosure documents. If so, it will likely find significant sums spent by the RNC on services rendered by DMI…
You know what the good Lord says about ye who is without sin? Let’s just say I ain’t picking up any stones. The idea that all Republicans are supposed to be pure as driven snow is a leftwing meme that we all know isn’t true. I have met plenty of Republicans who know how to PARTY. So what I am about to say isn’t coming from the point of a prude.
The issue here though is what is to be gained by soliciting donations in this manner? We all know that big donors tend to get listen to over little ones. The evening described above reminds me so much of my Wall Street days. Many of the young execs ups would go out and tear up the town with their expense accounts. For the most part they were of the jerk persuasion. So do we really want young jerks having influence in the Republican Party? Perhaps this is why, the Republican Party is a little top heavy with feather headed RINOs and power hungry elitists.
Like the old saying goes, don’t mix business with pleasure.
