Recruiting Young Republicans

Via digby, a Republican blog in Orange County, California is reporting that the night at the Voyeur West club in West Hollywood that wound up on the RNC credit card was part of an event to get new members to join the Party.

According to sources who were in attendance that night, the “official” part of the evening started with 50+ person dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel, then carried on throughout the evening, eventually ending up at Voyeur. While RNC employees, who were in town to recruit members to its “RNC Young Eagles” program, did participate throughout the entire evening and did find their way to the bondage-themed club, Michael Steele himself was “not in attendance” for any portion of the evening. Brown, by the way, is reportedly a “Young Eagle” himself, a fundraising sub-group of the RNC which targets larger donors based on age group.

Nothing says “join the Party of Family Values” by getting shitfaced with a bunch of strippers.
