Once again the Republicans Party, the party that champions “family values,” “high moral standards,” and “Christian morality,” are caught with their pants down, spending campaign money at strip clubs. According to a recent report from
The Christian Science Monitor:
"GOP fires Allison Meyers as strip-club scandal taints party
Allison Meyers was director of the GOP's Young Eagles, a group that wooed young donors and visited a strip club in Los Angeles – racking up $1,946 in expenses that the party initially reimbursed....
...The Republican National Committee reimbursed about $2,000 in expenses rung up by the Young Eagles at a Hollywood nightclub featuring topless dancers and bondage outfits. Ms. Meyers allegedly approved the expense.
Fallout could affect Republican fundraising, particularly among its fiscally and morally conservative small donors. Moreover, the news has increased pressure on party Chairman Michael Steele, who is already already under fire for his management of party spending.
The conservative website “The Daily Caller” first reported that the RNC’s February financial disclosure statement included a $1,946 reimbursement to a California consultant for “meals” at the risqué nightclub. The financial report also disclosed the party had spent $17,514 for private jets, $12,691 on limousines, and $19,016 at the posh W Hotel in Washington.”
That’s nearly $2,000 on strippers plus $17,514 for private jets, even more money on limousines and posh hotels. While the rest of the country is hurting from the recession and the Tea Party shows up with a bunch of working class people complaining about government spending, the Republicans are spending ridiculous amounts of money on luxuries many of their constituents can’t afford.
So for those of you who insist on voting for family values, go to a strip club. Your representative in Washington are doing it—so it must be OK.
