• Update: If Michael Steele Didn't Authorize the Bondage Dance Club Spree, Who Did?


    This guy did, maybe! Meet consultant Erik Brown, president of something called "Dynamic Marketing Inc." in California — that's the now-locked-up DMI Facebook page, above. It seems Mr. Brown is the one who spent nearly $2,000 on a night at a bondage-themed nightclub in West Hollywood, and now that the news is all over the internet, he'll be giving the RNC a refund

    A California-based political consultant who charged the Republican National Committee nearly $2,000 for a night out at Voyeur – a risque West Hollywood nightclub now at center of the latest controversy surrounding RNC chairman Michael Steele – will return the money to the party, a committee spokesman told CNN Monday.

    Erik Brown, president of the Orange County-based Dynamic Marketing, Inc., was re-imbursed in February for $1,946.25 worth of charges at the nightclub, according to the RNC's latest filing with the Federal Election Commission.

    It's not clear why the RNC re-imbursed Brown for the charges or who else was with him at the club. A spokesman for the RNC said Steele was not at the club when the charges were made.

    Other people are saying there's "no way" the uber-conservative marketing wonk Brown suggested a strip club jaunt, which could mean he's taking the fall for Michael Steele and/or someone else… on the other hand, some of the pieces do add up.

    Just think how many times Michael Steele has gone along with terrible marketing ideas.
