Private Jet? No. Lesbian Bondage Show? “Yes We Can,” says RNC Chairman

March 29, 2010

Republican National Committee Chairman (and former MD Lt. Governor) Michael Steele’s travel expenses are generating some debate. (Boldface ours.)

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 $1,620.71 spent [update: the amount is actually $1,946.25] at Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.

The Chairman needs to hang in classy places; “his defenders point out that luxurious accommodations are sometimes necessary to attract big-time donors, especially since Republicans remain in the minority in Washington.”

Oh, but he wasn’t even in the joint.

Oh, but the story never said he was.

The WaPo unmasks the Bondage Boy.

The Times goes with RNC is investigating improprieties.
