Just when you thought political shenanigans couldn’t get kinkier than Eric Massa’s tickle fights, the Republican National Committee under Michael Steele ups the ante. It turns out the RNC reimbursed a marketing firm honcho named Erik Brown $1,946 for a trip in which Brown took a group of potential donors to Voyeur, a bondage-themed club in Hollywood. Was he planning on beating money out of them? I guess that’s one way to get donors to contribute to Republicans. “Now I want you write out a check to Darrell Issa’s campaign, or Gretchen is going to have to tighten up those nipple clamps…” And how do you spend nearly $2,000 on bondage? How much are ball gags going for these days, anyway? And do you have to get the top-of-the-line gear? You’re spending the RNC’s money. Maybe you should keep your bondage purchases confined to clothesline rope and duct tape—just like the regular folks out there do. (You would never find Democrats at a leather-themed bondage club. I mean, leather is SOOOO politically incorrect. It’s strictly rubber and latex for Democrats. We can engage in kinky sex without having a cow die to supply our cinch-up corsets, boots , and masks, thank you very much.)
Yeesh. Remember the good old days when Republicans were satisfied with sealing their unholy deals on illegal lobbyist-paid golf outings? Well, they’ve gone from golf to bondage-themed nightclubs. The only thing those two have in common are the ridiculous outfits. OK. On the whole, the bondage outfits are slightly less ridiculous than golf clothes. Nobody is so into S&M that they’d be willing to put on a pair of plaid pants with a striped shirt.
The trip was listed on the disclosure forms under “meals.” To be fair, I doubt there’s even a place on the official forms to check off “sadomasochistic themed strip clubs.” The good news for the RNC is that all the uproar over the outing to Voyeur has obscured the fact that the rest of the FEC filing was full of charges for luxury jets, limos, and posh hotels. In February alone, the RNC spent $17,000 for travel on private jets, and another $12,000 for limousines and cars. Read the full blog...
