can we still say it was michael steele?

This Guy, He’s The One Who Spent RNC Money On Lesbian Bondage Horse-Bits Sexytime

We have a weiner! “The Republican National Committee gave nearly $2,000 to a Southern California GOP contributor for meal expenses at Voyeur West Hollywood, a lesbian-themed California nightclub that features topless dancers wearing horse-bits and other bondage gear, according to newly filed disclosure records.” This guy, Erik Brown, CEO of DYNAMIC MARKETING INC. (the “FUCK YEAH” of MARKETING) has a great Facebook page, though.

The expenditure of $1,946.25 at Voyeur West Hollywood is listed as “meals” on the RNC disclosure form, and comes right after an identical amount listed as a disbursement to Brown, the Southern California marketing executive. Heye said the two listings refer to the same single disbursement to Brown.

Brown has contributed nearly $10,000 to Republicans since 2007, including at least $1,500 to the RNC, records show. A Twitter account registered to a user of the same name also suggests Brown attended a football game in Washington on Oct. 26 with the committee chair: “Enjoying the football game with RNC Chairman Michael Steele. (Eagles vs Redskins at FedEx Field).”

Well, we all know how much Michael Steele loves his Redskins! Here is footage of Erik Brown with Michael Steele at this actual football game, 20 years ago, in 2009 (skip to the :29 mark):

Whores, everywhere.

Here is what Erik Brown wrote on Facebook just before his hilarious RNC bondage spree.

Way to get the joke in before those stricter privacy settings, Craig Hansen!

    JOINED! Glad to be part of the DMI Marketing Facebook outreach. I have a feeling this firm is Going Places! Looking forward to the next update! That’s what she said!

  2. WhatTheHeck

    IN marketing, there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

    Except when S&M Bondage is mistaken for “Republican Family VAlues.”

  3. Red Zeppelin

    I think if you look closer, you’ll find that some of the horse girls are trannies, so it’s more within the usual Repub m.o.

  4. user-of-owls

    Michael Steel is desperately searching YouTube for evidence that Norman Leboon once threatened Erik Brown.

  5. BlueStateLiberal

    A marketing person impresses me yet again…BTW, that eagle logo for DMI is so lame.

  6. the problem child

    I’m not sure that alcohol counts as “meals”, especially if it was billed twice.

  7. southern mark smith

    Delicious stuff on that Twitter page:

    reminding GOP Congressional Offices that the House Franking Commission will be closed from Wed Nov 25 through Mon Dec 1 for Thanksgiving

    Of course, I had to look up “Franking”, but it meant approximately what I suspected.

  8. N8Ma

    Hey you can “tag” the photo of his sexy blue Eagle and send it to him for approval! I tagged it “Lesbian BDSM Hooker” and sent it to his approval!

  9. RoscoePColtraine

    These “horse-bits” of which you speak, might they come in a variety of fruity flavors?

    Patent Pending! Patent Pending!

  10. give us a bob

    Wow, the prospect of marketing for the industrial coating industry just became much sexxxxier in my eyes.

  11. Hopey dont play that game

    A Republican interested in sexytime with females that are both human and adult? What am I missing here?

  12. Allyson

    Dynamic Marketing…well, this guy just got a ton of free publicity by pulling this stunt, so that speaks to his business acumen, if not his political common sense.
    Now, what can Brown do for you?

  13. bfstevie

    Before they decided to call the bidness Dynamic Marketing Inc. they considered “Dynamic Marketing n’ Things”, and “Dynamic Marketing Concepts”.

  14. EdFlinstone

    C’mon who doesn’t go the psuedo-bondage lesbian clubs for the food, remember Tuesday’s kids eat free!!!!

  15. Snookums

    The name Direct Marketing, Inc. just screams MLM/pyramid scheme ‘direct sales’ business.

  16. Potater

    [re=543709]Hopey dont play that game[/re]: Don’t forget she has to be bound and gagged for him to enjoy himself. Sounds pretty Republican to me.

    Also, horse cosplay, and also too.

  17. JMP

    It was all about the meals; going to the club, Brown explained to his companions that the place made the best steaks in the city, and it was worth putting up with the distracting little floor show.

  18. 8-Man

    If I give $1500 to the RNC does that mean I get a $446.25 credit at Secrets? I’m confused.

  19. WhatTheHeck

    [re=543695]Red Zeppelin[/re]: But ‘she’ looked real fine, Erik said, before she took off the bit, feed bag and stirrups.

  20. Marxist Leninist Papist

    Truely, those traditional family values are a serious,sacred, all-Americian thing…yes indeedy. And they have just so many practioners !

  21. SayItWithWookies

    Meals — what amateurs. An eagle-eyed expense-account chiseler would’ve listed that as a seminar on gender and employment. I hope Michael Steele has a good explanation ready for when the real head of the GOP gets back and wants to know what happened to the slush fund.

  22. Prommie

    Its too easy to go to elec and see what he donates to the GOP; but he is a marketer, and someone should be looking to see how much the GOP spends on him. The campaign consulting bizness is as corrupt as the, well, as anything, except more so.

  23. RoscoePColtraine

    I can’t do it because I’m using my iPhone, but someone needs to rush on over to UrbanDictionary and insert “chomping at the bit.”

  24. chascates

    Maybe this is an isolated incident? After all you wouldn’t expect Lindsey Graham or Charlie Crist to be there.

  25. Mr Blifil

    So if I give you $10K, you give me back $2K for hookers and blow? Wouldn’t it make more sense to just put up my own money for hookers and blow? That means the privilege of sitting at the game with Michael Steele is $8K. With happy ending, I’m assuming.

    My church never had the whips and horse bits, but it was after Vatican II, so I guess you never know.

  27. coolcatdaddy

    DMI’s one fascinating company.

    They have a website that consists of one page, directing you to their Twitter and Facebook page.

    They have no mentions on Google at all.

    Their domain has been registered since 2006.

    So, is this some kind of funky tax shelter or cover for something?

  28. Lazy Media

    How much you want to bet “Dynamic Marketing” = multi-level marketing = Amway for dildo sales. What, no takers?

  29. Stinky

    Welcome to Voyeur West Hollywood, gentlemen. Come for the simulated lesbian B&D displays, stay for the simulated surf & turf.

    Sounds like somebody has ambitions to being Minority Whip.

  30. JMP

    [re=543694]WhatTheHeck[/re]: True; the S&M club has got to be hurting from being associated with Republican fundraisers. What did they ever to do deserve that kind of publicity?

    [re=543723]mumblyjoe[/re]: At first, I read the FB commenter as “Chris Hansen”, and thought this was going to have added pedophilia.

    Brown: Hey, everyone!
    Steele: Hiya Eric. Good to see you again! Heard you were burning the midnight oil this weekend for our new Health Care Strategy!
    Brown: You bet! It’s called “Operation Fight-Fire-with-Fire”
    Steele: I like it already!
    Brown: Haha! Now see, Obama’s asked us to debate on the issues, and we’re going to do just that! We’re going to have a controlled campaign of medical experts and policy analysts going cross-country and on TV explaining how the current bill is full of half-measures and how our ideas will fix things, too!
    Steele: What?
    Brown: We’ll make them nationally recognized! We’ll bring them to debates with the Democrats’ own analysts!
    Steele: But, what about the tea partiers?
    Brown: Well, our research has shown that they don’t have a lot of spending money and our top donors are really turned off by-
    Steele: Erik, this was a great presentation, I want to thank you for all the work you and your team put into this. Go grab your coat and we’ll break for lunch.
    Brown: Great, I’ll make sure to e-mail you the powerpoint!

    Steele : Jesus Christ. Make it look like we spent this on strippers.

  32. What Fresh Hell is This?

    What are the logistics of giving money to an organization and their using it to pay for you to go to strip clubs?

    Is this like making a contribution to Habitat if they build you a house — or to the Humane Society to give you a puppy to roast and enjoy?

    More from him page “an ice hockey coach for over 12 years, his teams have won acclaim as State, District, and National Champions.”

    Ok kids, we just won districts, screw Dairy Queen, now lets celebrate at the club by watching Lilo get the riding crop from Mistress X. But hey, its okay because the douche and his sunday school wife lead the kids in prayer before breaking bread.

  37. Neilist

    You know, I have coffee over in West Hollywood (at The Abby – great place) most Saturday mornings, on the way to the office. Never seen Michael Steele around, though.

    But then, those people all look alike to me.

    Anyway, if you want to eyeball cute dykes, Girl Bar is better: http://www.girlbar.com

    [re=543737]Mr Blifil[/re]: No, because then your hookers and blow would not be a line item tax deduction.

  39. Aguacatero

    [re=543768]What Fresh Hell is This?[/re]: Well, I’ll tell you one thing. There’s a real advantage to using the credit card of a national political party for your strip club purchases, since it guarantees that your visit will forever remain secret.

  40. Mad Brahms

    I don’t care what he actually looks like; in my mind, he will always be the horrible creepy guy in “Requiem for a Dream” yelling “ASS TO ASS!”

  41. Hopey McChangey

    I’m shocked. Flabergasted. I expected more from the Republican party…I figured he woulda spent the $2000 snorting coke off a 12-year old Thai ladyboy’s ass. At the C-street house. Also.

  42. commiegirl

    I know Erik Brown fairly well; we used to do a weekly radio show together, where he was the stentorian voice of conservatism and I would shriek at him uncontrollably. That kind of shit would have made him run home to mommy. I am calling “fall guy” on this.

  43. WIDTAP

    [re=543807]commiegirl[/re]: So your saying Alison was the one who wanted to get her freak on?

  44. Mad Brahms

  45. Neilist

    [re=543807]commiegirl[/re]: Meet me in Girlbar, with pictures, and we’ll talk.

    Oh, and bring the hammer and sickle thingy, rather than a whip, okay? Much trendier.

    “Arise, ye prisoner of my trousers!
    Arise, you python of my pants!”

    Hmm. Not working. Better try Viagra.

    [re=543807]commiegirl[/re]: OMG, local OC and international legend CommieGirl. Oh how I spent the 90′s dreaming of you.
    Best Wishes,

  47. Hopey McChangey

    Erik’s Facebook page (the little you can actually see without friending him) reveals he is a fan of some good ol’ family values, yes siree:

    Manhattan Declaration: A Call of Christian Conscience
    The Family Action PAC
    Billy Graham

    Surprisingly, lesbian bondage isn’t listed as one of his hobbies. He is however, a fan of Blackwater, so that’s pretty close.

  48. Mad Brahms

    [re=543840]commiegirl[/re]: Well played. Well played indeed. Though let’s be fair: a lot of guys who are shy and sexually repressed in public are, well, sort of freaks in private. Though really I do hope it ends up being him at the club *with* Steele.

    [re=543851]stew[/re]: The political iconography there would’ve been too much to take; my head might have exploded.

  49. Terry

    He donated $1,500 to the RNC and they paid his $1,946.25 bill at a bondage themed girly bar?

    I thought the GOP was supposed to be the party with the good business sense. They lost money in that deal.

  50. ProfessorJukes

    Aw… the DMI Facebook page is no longer ‘public’… you can’t just join it and post appropriate (imho) links to pictures of certain clubs. Suddenly, you have to ASK to join…

  51. Jukesgrrl

    $1,946.25 would feed me for six months. And I don’t have to chain up any lesbians, real or faux, to enjoy my taste treats.

  52. Neilist

    [re=543840]commiegirl[/re]: No, no, no, CommieGirl. Not a picture of you. A picture of the Lesbo Bondage Strippers!!!!!

    Gesh. Do I have to explain everything?

    :::Sigh:::

    Just thinking of the last time I was in Girlbar with a “principal.” What is it about Cute Dykes that drives Real Men wild?

    :::Sigh:::

    Well, except the Pope, of course. But then, not many Real Men wear dresses in public. (Now, in private . . . .)

    Don’t give up on these guys just yet. It’s probably a tip-of-the-iceberg thing. This particular scandal is only a few hours old, remember?

    I just love that sentence structure! You can float almost anything out there, since it isn’t directly connected to the subject. A former Miss World and the next Mrs. George Clooney, Jukesgrrl is a hobo. A director of Microsoft, Jukesgrrl hearts the Dalai Lama. Yeah, someone is those things. It just ain’t Jukesgrrl.

    Worry, worry, worry…first I read, here…

    “Way to go Brownie”…then
    “What can Brown do for you”…

    Now that I’m really worried about is… I see this quote on a tea-bagger’s sign at the most recent Nevada protest…

    “You rammed it down our throat in “09”…We’re gonna shove up your arse in”10”…

    Now I visualize… again that same babe, that was holdin’ that sign, standin’ behind me, within close proximity, striking distance, if you will, with a damn 18 inch screwdriver and just, just … seeing “brown” “brown” “brown” all over the landscape…

    Holy moly…that hurt!

    I hereby request that Wonkette issue a public apology for pushing Erik as the “fall guy” for Steele. It is insulting and demeaning to be called a “fall guy” when you are actually guilty of the things they say you did.
