Michael Steele’s West Hollywood Adventures

Jim Burroway

March 29th, 2010

The Daily Caller has looked into Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele’s expenses and discussions on purchasing a private jet. They didn’t buy one, but he does like to travel in style: For the month of February he spent 17,514 on private aircraft and $12,691 on limousines. Democrats report no similar high-flying expenses. Other GOP expenses include:

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. [Emphasis mine].

Never having heard of Voyeur West Hollywood, I wanted to see what it was all about. The web site for Voyeur isn’t loading this morning, but its Yelp reviews seem to indicate that it’s among the hotter venues in West Hollywood. It seems very popular with the celebrity circuit. No mention of topless women dancers in any of the reviews, but then this is West Hollywood. Maybe topless dancers imitating lesbian sex just isn’t all that noteworthy.

It may not have been Steele but a staffer:

Whomever it was, I’d say that this is a job-killer and they should go. Getting one’s jollies from half-naked dancers simulating sex should come at one’s own expense. We certainly would can anyone at our business who acted otherwise.

It continues to amaze me just how stupid some people are when it comes to using company credit cards. Not only should whoever used the card (up to and including Michael Steele) be fired for inappropriate usage of the credit card, but should also be fired on the general prinipal that they are far to stupid to provide any valuable service to the organization.

If the Republican Party wants to have its executives travel in style and spend lavishly in topless bars, that really is up to the Republicans.

That being said…

Angelinos may recognize Voyeur as being the newly renovated Club 7969. This venue, while not inexpensive, is not exactly a celebrities-only exclusive club. And the “topless women dancers” probably have pasties (I don’t think that they can dance completely topless where alcohol is served*) and would be dancing on a stage. This isn’t a t!ttybar.

* The yelp reviews say “topless” so I may be mistaken.

It’s fascinating to me that they fight our rights and make us second class citizens and then have no qualms about using our people for their own pleasure.

Seems rather twisted to me.
