Did RNC Chairman Michael Steele Go to Voyeur on Its Gay Boy Night?

Sure, Lindsay Lohan might hang out at the nightclub Voyeur in West Hollywood, but for all the talk of how it’s a lesbian strip club (it isn’t really), it also hosts a big gay party each week. So let’s make that the talking point of the Republican National Committee spending $1,946.25 on “meals” there.

Whether you believe chairman Michael Steele was patronizing the joint or GOP supporter Erik Brown (haha), let’s be clear what Voyeur is: A typical lavish Hollywood nightspot, previously named Club 7969, where bottle service is paired with erotic arts.

And two Sundays a month, it is this:

    So basically gays are OK with the RNC as long as their onstage in some sort of gay version of “The Cotton Club”. Well at least they’re consistent.

  • romeo

    I hate to see one of my hangs plastered all over the news like this. There’s enough trouble keeping the riff-raff out.

  • Donald

    Is there a way to correlate the day the charges were made to the event that was happening at the club? I’ve seen the figures but have not seen specific dates mentioned.

  • Mike in Asheville, nee "in Brooklyn"

    @No. 3 Donald

    You’re right! Correlate the date of the charges against the club’s social calendar.

    Also, what clients were taken there? Either closet case homophobe-homos cruising go-go boys OR closet-case womanizers cruising for big titties. Full exposure, please.

  • Cam

    I’m just waiting for some admission from some big name anti gay person to be one of the folks in the club.

  • tjr101

    Well, I’m certainly no fan of the GOP (Grand Old Pervs) but do admit they are an entertaining bunch. I just love watching them constantly trip over their “family values” brand.

    It’s important tpo keep in mind that there is a huge gulf between the Pepublicans who are jiust in it as an instrument of greed (the wealthy con’s ) and the people they use to enlarge their voter base with the pretense of promoting”social values”(despite the denial of their own real economic interests) .
    Most of the latter are neither smart enough to find this club or even literate enough to read the ad nor wealthy enough to get in.

    The basic Republican leader has no interest at all in morals except as superficial interest in them serves to make them more money.
    The greedy have for years tried to find some way of justifying their actions- giving them any moral basis: failing they just subscibe superficially to what will gain them votes.

    McShane echos what Erich Shulte of ruthless reviews stated a year an a half ago: “Part of the reason stupid people are drawn to conservatism is that the intelligent conservatives have always been willing to indulge and support ignorance in order to conserve their own wealth and power. [Sarah] Palin is the culmination of the progess of the stupid conservative from beast of burden to red-nosed reindeer.”

    Who cares if they (Republicans) love sex places, I’m sure Democrats do the same thing. It’s okay to go sex clubs, just don’t be a hipocrate, have fun. Not even sure why this is news. Drugs and crime spread on the street, and people can’t find enough to eat. And our kids can’t go out and play. This is the State of the World today. PEACELUVNBWILD!

    Side issue: LA leather clubs are so sadly phony. I mean, I am not into the Leather world– but when am at an event or fundraiser in a venue, it’s really obvious who is ‘lifestyle’ and who is into outfits.

  • hardmannyc

    ^^^ So what? The hottest guys just don leather as a costume. The hardcore leather queens are usually out of shape.

    Has anyone been to this party? Sanker & Paulo – sounds like fun!

  • Timothy

    Considering that Steele didn’t go to Voyeur himself, then “no, he wasn’t there on gay night”.

    But, FYI, voyeur is a lot of fun on gay night. Cool atmosphere, and cute friendly guys.

  • Drake

    How much of the cash was used to stuff in the thongs of the dancers?

  • gb

    Its a gay thing. . . I’m lovin it’

    Michael Steele has a positive affect on my gaydar. I wouldn’t mind betting there are many skeletions in his deep dark closet. He’s nothing more than an example of republican window dressing to give the appearance the GOP is an all-inclusive party. To date, since 1935, they’ve only had three African Americans holding office. So much for the big, mythical tent they espouse. Note how the party never addresses gay issues/equality at any of their conventions, and those dumbass self loathing log cabiners continue supporting them blindly.

  • Marc

    FACT CHECK Michael Steele was NOT AT THE CLUB at all. There is no naked lady scandal at the RNC. A Republican political consultant was at the club and billed his expenses to the RNC. Someone working at an office administrative level at the RNC paid out the charges. That is it. To fabricate this story into the story you would like it to be, is just a lot of bull shit.

  • alexis

    It feels bad for me

  • Torotot

    Great moves.. Looks like real

  • ossurworld

    Steele was looking for Log Cabin Republicans and Congressmen.

  • Gurlene

    Anyone know what ol’ Rush has said about this incident? I would not be surprised if he too has “accidentally” visited such a place in the Dominican Republic.
