RNC spends teabagger dollars on lesbian sex shows

@ 10:40 AM (57 months, 18 days ago)

 

Can't wait to see what teabagger poster-board signs have to say about that.

Just when the GOP needs to count its pennies for the midterms, here's what Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee, has been spending the white people's donations on -- chartered jets cost $17,514, limousines cost $12,691, the tab for a single GOP party trip to Hawaii was more than $43,000.

Let's see .. there was a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the nearby Four Seasons, and $1,946.25 spent at Voyeur West Hollywood, a "bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex...."

Wait a minute .. what? Family Values guys .. watching topless women tie each other up and imitate lesbian sex?

They hurriedly fired an "unidentified staff member" .. and some spokesman scrambled out to say that someone else, not Steele, spent the money at the strip joint. They insist that Steele was "never at the location in question."

Yet, no one has disputed the other expenditures.

Michael Steele has already raised eyebrows when he used his position to line his own pockets .. through his outside paid speeches and a book written in secret.

Then he asked to use party money to buy a private jet for his travels .. they turned him down.

Reports keep leaking out about Steele spending his party's money like a drunken sailor .. on private jets and limousines, catering and flowers. He hired Hollywood chef Wolfgang Puck to cater the RNC's Christmas party at a trendy DC night club. He also moved its winter meeting from Washington to Hawaii.

Yep, these high rollers and big spenders are in the party who wants to get back in charge of federal spending ... of your tax dollars.

All this when there's been recent reports about Republican donors moving away from the RNC because they don't trust Michael Steele .. they donate instead to campaign committees and straight to candidates.

And these latest revelations will weaken Steele even further .. because if the GOP falls short of their grand expectations in the midterm elections, Michael Steele will be the perfect fall guy.

Dang, poor Sarah Palin only got clothes.

They're such a lovely bunch, those conservatives. The anti-gubmint Tea Party Social Security and Medicare crowd .. the anti-gay, gay Republican politicians. The holier-than-thou married Republican politicians who commit adultery .. who fly down to Argentina on the taxpayer dime to do it .. or just sleep with married campaign workers closer to home.

And now, the party of  Family Values and Fiscal Responsibility, blows almost $2,000 going to a lesbian sex strip joint.

It's too bad they can't see themselves as the rest of us see them ..  an irony deficiency, I guess.

Hey, Republicans .. do you know how to make sure that your party’s money isn't blown on sex clubs and strippers? Elect a woman to the RNC next time. That's right .. let a nice lady run your party with dignity and responsibility.
