GOP Fires Staffer Over Topless Lesbian Bondage Club Expenses

The GOP has found their scapegoat.
The Republican National Committee is cutting ties with a staffer who treated a group of donors to an after party at a bondage-themed club in West Hollywood. The event was expensed for nearly $2,000 and also cost the unnamed employee a job. Some members of the GOP had already called for the resignation of RNC Chairman Michael Steele, who reportedly did not attend and was unaware of the incident.
The Concerned Women For America are concerned!
"As women we find the very idea of officials from either party approving of endeavors that objectify and demean women outrageous," said Nance. "This kind of behavior is not appropriate for national leaders that our children should be able to look up to as role models, and that our daughters could be working for. Did you really swill drinks, ogle young girls, and plan party business at this kind of establishment? Please explain!"
Others say this may be the end for Michael Steele, no matter how the GOP spins it.
This most recent story may be the third strike for Steele. While he was hailed as the perfect challenger to the Obama administration when he took charge his tenure has been filled with trouble. Steele was even forced to apologize to Rush Limbaugh after criticizing Limbaugh's effect on the party. For a party that prides itself on upholding "family values" the "bondage-gate" story may require someone to be put on the chopping block. Ultimately if enough big party donors demand Steele's resignation it is hard to see how he makes it much longer. However Steele's dismissal could hurt Republicans even more as they already struggle with the image fo being a party not welcoming to minorities.
