According to this report, Steele spent just under 2 grand at a Los Angeles bondage themed nightclub called Voyeur West Hollywood during an RNC trip last February. The Daily Caller is citing Federal Election Commission filings from the RNC for their numbers, which include lots of other shady dealings with voters’ money but none of them are as hilarious as Michael Steele gettin’ his freak on with lesbian strippers in bondage.
For their part, the RNC is insisting that it wasn’t Steele himself at this club, which if true would ruin everyone’s fun. But they’re not saying who exactly was responsible for the costs. Even so, they’re probably right because it’s not like Steele’s fellow Republicans have any problem at all with throwing him under the bus.
UPDATE: It was apparently someone called Erik Brown who done did it. Still Steele is in charge of the RNC, he was in LA with the guy and he apparently didn’t properly babysit Mr Brown. So it’s not entirely inaccurate to say that it was Steele who “made it rain.” And “not entirely inaccurate” is the kind of standard that works well for me.
