Ah, Michael Steele is a national treasure. Consider this:
Once on the ground, FEC filings suggest, Steele travels in style. 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.
In all fairness, Steele denies personally attending the club, blaming an
aide consultant instead. But spending nearly $2,000 on strippers simulating lesbian sex seems like a fine example of republican fiscal conservatism. Imagine how much they'd pay for the real thing.
