RNC Denies Michael Steele Was At Sex-Themed Nightclub
Following a Daily Caller report on lavish spending by the Republican National Committee, including $1946.25 spent at Voyeur, a bondage-themed club in Hollywood featuring dancers simulating lesbian sex, the RNC is denying that party chair Michael Steele was involved. The party says it’s investigating who may be responsible for the expenditure.
“We are investigating the expenditure in question. The story willfully and erroneously suggests that the expenditure in question was one belonging to the Chairman. This was a reimbursement made to a non-committee 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.
“Good reporting would make that distinction crystal clear. The committee has requested that the monies be returned to the committee and that the story be corrected so that it is accurate.”
The RNC says it is working to get back the almost $2o00 spent at the topless club.
Doug Heye, a spokesman for the RNC, on Monday would not say who the donor was, but announced the committee got a commitment that the cash would be returned.
“The RNC has not only requested that that money that was sent out as a reimbursement be repaid by the member but we’ve got the commitment that will be done,” Heye told Fox News.
The Daily Caller now contends that their report never specifically claimed that Steele himself was at the nightclub:
To be clear: We did not claim that Michael Steele personally visited Voyeur West Hollywood. In fact, and unfortunately, we still know almost nothing about that trip, including its purpose. If the RNC provides details, we’ll put them on the site immediately.Click here for reuse options!
