Michael Steele Spends Teabaggers’ Dollars On Lesbian Sex-Show Nightclubs In West Hollywood

Never before has this Blingee been such a perfect & true illustration of Michael Steele, GOP chairman.America’s #1 Republican, GOP Chairman Michael Steele, likes to “make it rain” at fancy liberal sex clubs. According to important new Republican webzine The Daily Caller, just last month Steele “spent $1,946.25 at Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.” He dropped more than $15,000 at the Beverly Hills Hotel and Four Seasons on the same February trip to LA. UPDATE: Oh and now the RNC says it wasn’t Steele dropping two grand at the sex club, but an unnamed other GOP fat-cat. Oh really, please tell us more!

What is this “Club Voyeur” place? Better check Yelp:

Oh. Wow. Rolled up here with 6 girls around midnight on a Saturday night after we realized that the crowd at Crown Bar had gone drastically downhill.

The girl at the door sent us in right away and told us to go to a table by the bar and get some free Champagne. Seriously. This club is amazing. There are topless “dancers” acting out S&M scenes throughout the night on one of the side stages, there’s a half-naked girl hanging from a net across the ceiling and at one point I walked to the bathroom and pretty much just stopped dead in my tracks to watch two girls simulating oral sex in a glass case.

Really understated elegance here.

Also, Lindsay Lohan was at our table at one point.

What else did human comedy Michael Steele blow the white people’s money on, during February? The chartered jets cost $17,514. The limousines cost $12,691. The tab for a single trip GOP party trip to Hawaii was more than $43,000.

Okay okay but let’s hear more about this strip club, this time from the L.A. Times‘ interview with the founders of Club Voyeur:

“David and I had just seen the movie Eyes Wide Shut, and it all just kind of started clicking together,” added partner Matt Bendik, formerly at the Las Vegas hospitality company the Light Group.

On the club’s opening night, Oct. 8, that vision swam into view. The dark, leather-heavy interior is reminiscent of the masked orgy scene from the movie. The reference is taken a step further with impromptu bondage and S&M “scenes” being played out on an elevated platform by scantily clad performers throughout the night — not presented as “shows,” like they are in clubs such as Playhouse Hollywood. There is also a heavy net suspended above the club’s lounge area where performers writhe above the heads of clubgoers. Even more provocative scenes are played out in an enclosed glass booth area adjacent to the club’s dance floor area.

“It’s pretty . . . intense,” clubgoer Lee Stone admitted on opening night as one female performer with a horse’s bit in her mouth was being strapped to the wall by another just behind the booth he was sharing with friends. His friend was more intrigued by the action. “I wonder if I would get in trouble for joining them?” she joked.

Hahahahahahah well props to Michael Steele for trying to get back to old-school Republican secret-sex clubs with bondage and women slaves with horse’s bits in their mouths. Sorry, you poor dumb Teabaggers, but the GOP is going back to Historical Levels of True Elite Depravity. Read up on the Hellfire Club and make some illiterate poster-board signs about that.

Steele won’t answer any questions about all this, because he just woke up at the W in Washington (where the GOP spent nearly $20,000 last month) with hella hangover and three passed out ladies in his king-size. But what a night! [Daily Caller]

Thanks to EVERYBODY for sending this, and congratulations to Tucker Carlson’s Internet Concern for winning the morning!

    Oh…and someone on a comment board said something about the place having an “understated elegance”. Looking at the picture, I have to wonder…since when did New Orleans whore houses have anything “understated”.

  2. Mr Blifil

    Ha. Knock me over with a feather. You know who doesn’t blow the party’s money on sex clubs and strippers, normally? Women. Which nice lady will the GOP appoint to running their party with dignity and responsibility?

  3. ArkansasFred

    I realize that may seem like an awful lot to spend on a party, what with all these important elections coming up, but it’s not everyday that Tom Hanks marries Tawny Kitaen.

  4. SmutBoffin

    I smell a set-up.

    A) Mike’s kinda to lame to party like that.
    B) He has to go since his colossal failures and all.
    C) Why would this be on Tuck’s site?

  5. sati demise

    He is just trying to reach out to the pole dancing constituents, bringing the hip-hop to the simulated sex acts!

  6. Flanders

    [re=543250]Mr Blifil[/re]: I want to see what Michelle Bachmann can do with power and money.

    Also, Wonkett is back! Months of dreary healthcare reform discussions had me worried but *this* is what makes politics so….arousing.

  7. JMP

    Now I suddenly have a new-found respect for Mr. Steele. Please, keep on partying; and keep wasting the GOP’s money on things other than elections.

    Meanwhile, Palin’s kicking herself for not running for RNC chair, missing a big grifting opportunity.

  8. Terry

    “While Steele has not purchased a plane, he continues to charter them. According to federal disclosure records, the RNC spent $17,514 on private aircraft in the month of February alone (as well as $12,691 on limousines during the same period). There are no readily identifiable private plane expenses for Democratic National Committee chairman Tim Kaine in the DNC’s last three months of filings.

    The RNC explains that Steele charters jets only when commercial service is unavailable, or when his tight schedule requires it. “Anytime the chairman has taken any private travel has been a either to a route that doesn’t exist or because of connections and multiple travel to where he just wasn’t able to do so,” Heye said. Yet Steele’s office repeatedly refused to explain in specific terms the circumstances of the February charter flights.”

    So, where was Steele flying on GOP business that could not be reached by commercial air service? Meetings at Dubya’s old secret compound in Paraguay?

    Poor Tim Kaine. He lacks Steele’s panache.

  9. penalcolony

    In fairness to Steele & Co., the RNC says “This was a reimbursement made to a non-committee staffer. The Chairman was never at the location in question, he had no knowledge of the expenditure . . .” etc. . . .

    In fairness to everyone over the age of six: What would you expecti> them to say? and while we’re at it, what’s a “non-committee staffer”?

  10. ForTheTurnstiles

    This is a serious fucking problem friends. This means Steele is on his way out for sure, and who is going to replace his profound incompetence?

  11. JMP

    [re=543256]SmutBoffin[/re]: You know, I’ve known quite a few closet cases who would go overboard in acting sexist, pretending to leer at women and talking about how sexy they thought certain women were, all to prove straightness to everyone else; it never worked.

  12. blackarachnia

    Go, go, go, go
    Go, go, go shawty
    It’s your birthday
    We gon’ party like it’s yo birthday
    We gon’ sip Bacardi like it’s your birthday
    And you know we don’t give a f***
    It’s not your birthday!

    You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub
    Look mami I got the X if you into taking drugs
    I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love
    So come give me a hug if you into to getting rubbed

    Aww c’mon folks he’s just a WANKSTA after all….

  13. What Fresh Hell is This?

    [re=543256]SmutBoffin[/re]: I’d agree, but then I think of Bill “Man of Virtue” Bennett’s lust for gambling. The denials and documentation will be fun to watch. Nothing exceeds like excess.

  14. snideinplainsight

    They also fail to mention the $600 Michael Steele spent trying to meet the acai berry spokesmodel. What is the RNC going to do with all that tea now?

  15. steverino247

    [re=543250]Mr Blifil[/re]: Oooh! Let’s see… Barbara Bush? Phylis Schlafly? They can’t give the money to Michelle Bachmann because she would send it all to televangelists. They also know better than to give it to Sarah Palin after the clothing problem. Maybe they should just keep blowing it on Steele because they’re not going to win any elections anyway.

  16. Scarab

    Lesbians, Hollywood, and a black guy wasting lots of GOP money – this might cause problems for Mr. Steele.

  17. claytonbigsby

    Oh dear, how much longer before the girls start coming out of the woodworks and selling their stories to TMZ about seeing Michael Steele?

  18. Tommmcatt

    Look, if you want to understand your constituency, you need to go where they congregate. I imagine that the only reason that we aren’t reading about NAMBLA visits is that their meetings must not be all that expensive.

  19. Lascauxcaveman

    This smells fishy to me. Nothing I’ve seen from him in the past has indicated that Steele is such a fun guy to hang out with. Is Tucker Carlson gunning for Mike’s job for his own self?

  20. Tommmcatt

    [re=543289]claytonbigsby[/re]:

    Oh, dear god, yes. If only to see what lesbian bondage sex-show performers use for stage names…

  21. SmutBoffin

    [re=543276]JMP[/re]: So Mike’s just “frontin’” — pretending to be straight by affecting an interest in sapphic sex acts — and just cold overcompensating to the tune of $2000 of the party’s money? Shit. Could be, could be.

  22. SayItWithWookies

    Hey, it’s educational assistance — those girls are paying their way through college. Why does the DNC hate higher learning?

  23. Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Clearly, this is a cunning plan to get Jack Ryan to run for President.

    Or to have Alan Keyes take over the GOP.

    It has to be one or the other, right?

  24. Autoo

    [re=543273]freakishlystrong[/re]: “So, Lindsay Lohan being at your table is a rave for this place?”

    It is if she’s one of the performers, otherwise, meh. OTOH, if Miley drops in, point her out to me. Especially if it’s a school night.

  25. Terry

    The Huffington Post as an article about this, but hilariously enough, there is a GOP paid ad at the bottom of the article. The GOP is paying for ad space on an ad about their lavish spending.

  26. Snarkalicious

    If I knew I was doomed, and had a great deal of GOP payola at my disposal, I would do exactly these things. Where’s the fuckin story, here?

  27. mumblyjoe

    To be fair to the alt text, there is one -and precisely one- thing that could possibly have made that blingee better:

    “In college Michael Steele was active in drama”

  28. DirkLeisure

    From the LA Times Article: “An unusual cavalcade of celebrities bypassed the rope on opening night, including music impresario Rick Rubin with actor Vincent Gallo in tow. Reality personality Jack Osbourne, Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell and actor Gerard Butler also made the scene.”
    ——

    “Unusual,” yes. “Celebrities,” no.

  29. Blue_in_VA

    [re=543256]SmutBoffin[/re]: For sure. Classic power play. He won’t go quietly, so they’ll take him down.

  30. Blue_in_VA

    If some one gets a petition rolling to urge the RNC to keep Steele as Chair, I’ll sign it.

  31. WIDTAP

    Staffer? Well you don’t expect Steele to actually go out and get his own hookers and blow, do you?

  32. Manos: Hands of Fate

    Wait, so someone thought it was ok to expense $2,000 dropped at a place called Voyeur West? I’m thinking the RNC managed to get away with expensing some pretty wild stuff in the past so they must of thought this place was no big deal.

  33. Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Wait a minute, this doesn’t mean I have to take Tucker Carlson seriously, does it?

  34. SayItWithWookies

    It’s now time for Michael Steele and Pope Ratzi to switch jobs to improve the reputation of both the Catholic hierarchy and the RNC. The cardinals’ll be thrilled to have a pope whose most egregious transgression is spending huge amounts of money, and the RNC probably wouldn’t complain about having an Aryan whose first instinct in a scandal is to cover things up.

  35. whiskey tango foxtrot

    This is good. The teabagger rage from impending tax day, census deadline day, palin overexposure and disillusionment from the health care reform was really approaching a head. Now they can channel their anti-negro rage by lynching the totally useless Steele, and leave the good sharecropping and country-running negroes alone.

  36. hedgehog

    Is Lindsay Lohan a closet Republican? That’s hot. I love to watch two Republicans together.

  37. Dreamer

    February is the Black History Month, you racists. Can’t a brotha celebrate this important month to Negros without harassment from libtard commies. Also, he was contributing to America’s capitalism — someone has to do it, that commie Indonesian is bent on destroying it.

  38. Dashboard_Buddha

    [re=543247]Dashboard_Buddha[/re]: wow…got my idiot hat on today. What website did I read the comment about “understated elegance”? This one.

  39. Gunner

    “What’s the problem? I’m following the party’s priorities! I heard quite clearly that we should be focusing all of our resources and energy on . . . oh wait, you said eLECtion? Hey, my bad, but anyone could have made that mistake.”

  40. snoidoid

    I’m still trying to figure out the connection between teabagging and lesbians. Aren’t they kind of mutually exclusive?

  41. nappyduggs

    “Also, Lindsay Lohan was at our table at one point.”

    Read: “Also, Lindsay Lohan works there now.”

  42. chaste everywhere

    Brotha still here. But how does he have time for clubbin’ when he’s also busy making all those videos where he poses as a white muslin who wants to kill Eric Cantor? The makeup alone must take simply forever.

  43. June Cleaver 2.0

    You can tell Michael Steele is just pretending to care about his Republican party. He is an opportunist through and through, and is enjoying himself before the gig is up. Yayy, Mike, bust the Repub bank! But the lesbian sex interest is a whole ‘nother Michael Steele story, and is going to be a preview for some other kind of same sex situation, mark my words.

  44. NotthatLC

    [re=543321]Blue_in_VA[/re]: Oh, dude, so would I, maybe we should START a petition to keep Michael Steele. He is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

  45. The Silver Fox

    Also, that yelp review is classic. Which one of you classy bunch of Wonketteers wrote that? Don’t be modest – take a bow.

  46. Tommmcatt

    [re=543311]Dashboard_Buddha[/re]:

    “Mistress Natasha Moist”
    “Oleander Kittain”
    “Dave”

  47. Dolmance

    All these motherfuckers got slapped around by mommy good when they were growing up. So they’re all into women in high heels walking on their faces, S&M, etc., etc.. That’s their style of government too – judicial and legislative sadism. These cocksuckers can’t open their mouths without trying to humiliate someone or try and put some hurt on some group or other.

    I take pleasure that their mothers beat the shit out of them when they were growing up. But it’s still leavened with the understanding that these beatings were all in the past. I want to know they’ve got a beating in their future too. I want this so much.

  48. El Pinche

    So these topless dancers were female?? Could it be possible that there was an error in the report ( bottomless ladyboys? ) Once again, the liebral media LIES LIES LIES!!

  49. Hemp Dogbane

    What a coincidence! I, too, was inspired by that movie to recreate the entire thing – but in my own home. Well, it’s not quite finished yet. I’ve got the lame dialog going 24/7, but that “provocative” orgy scene is taking awhile. Still gathering equipment. Gotta get me one of them horse bits. Be sure to check back for updates. That was a long movie.

  50. tshirt

    I’d have no problem if it said that Steele “spent $1,946 at Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.”

    But it says he spent $1,946.25 …not $1,946.

    Oh Mike, what I wouldn’t give be a fly on the wall as you, watching you slip a quarter into that dancer’s thong…

  51. AnglRdr

    Oh thanks so much for all the mental imagery of Michael Steele and Lindsay Lohan and some other GOP fat-cat (Rush?) in a bondage club is making my lunch want to come up from whence it came.

  52. CaptainDog

    “Steele himself declined numerous interview requests, though his defenders point out that luxurious accommodations are sometimes necessary to attract big-time donors, especially since Republicans remain in the minority in Washington.”

    yeah, you can barely even FIND a rich white guy in DC these days.
    It’s like they all disappeared from everyones’ memory like in that crappy Start Trek episode

  53. Gorillionaire

    I agree that this is all just way too deliciously awesome to be anything but a set up. But then again, Steele has gotta know that after November his job is probably toast anyway, so maybe, why not? Why not go out in trailer trash wins the lottery style? And hey, every dollar he spends on goofy sex club fun nights is another dollar that won’t get spent on another stupid attack ad that I have to see during commercials on Jeopardy!.

  54. PickneyPinchback

    Did you see Sarah Palin in her dominatrix leather outfit “campaigning” for Walnuts? Maybe Steele is just trying to raise some money by scouting out this club for a special fundraiser where the beauty pageant lady will perform for Republicans who pay $100,000 each. After all, isn’t that what they all really want?

  55. Jim89048

    [re=543411]tshirt[/re]: See in the old days, you’d put a quarter on the edge of the table and the girls would pick it up, not using their hands! Until people like Steele started heating the quarters up with their Bic lighters, that is.
    And THAT is where the extra .25 comes into play.

  56. Jukesgrrl

    Democrats better not enjoy this too much. You have no idea where that Paul Begala hangs out. What do you think he fixes those buggy eyes on in his spare time? I’m just sayin …

    (I’m with [re=543256]SmutBoffin[/re]: if Tucker Carlson did indeed break this story, it’s a set-up.) And Dr. [re=543387]Dolmance[/re]: has a good point. Beat down! They want it!!

  57. thesheriffisnear

    Who’da thunk a Black guy would PAY good money to get whipped? The mind boggles.

  58. lawrenceofthedesert

    Perfect symmetry: a pseudo-chairman of a pretend political party at a pantomime sex club. Steele couldn’t feel out of place there; as Muddy so wonderfully sang, “you can’t lose what you never had.”

  59. Lazy Media

    [re=543262]Terry[/re]: Yeah, because it’s really, really hard to find a scheduled flight from DC to LA. I mean, obscure hamlets like that are gonna have, what, one flight a day, max?

  60. McDuff

    [re=543493]CaptainDog[/re]: “Spock’s Brain” could rule the galaxy with a trillion neurons tied behinds it back.

  61. claytonbigsby

    RNC claiming it wasn’t Steele?! Yeah right, and Andrew Young is the real father of John Edwards’ son ;)

  62. Lionel Hutz Esq.

    [re=543329]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Don’t forget that Ratzzi is apparently in favor of molesting young boys. He was made to be GOP chair!

  63. AlphaLiberal

    Let’s just hope the media really flogs this story. Although you know the Republicans will push back hard.
