Someone has to take the ultimate dive for the RNC signing the check to reimburse the $2k spent one night last month at WeHo's racy and exclusive Voyeur nightclub. That person is Allison Meyers*.

Meyers lost her gig as the head of the RNC's "Young Eagles" program, after it was discovered she okayed the reimbursement for a non-sanctioned outing to a nightclub that offers bottle service and entertainment in the form of topless women mimicking sex acts and dangling from the ceiling.

An internal memo detailing Meyers dismissal, as obtained by Politico, notes that while the Young Eagles were indeed meeting up in L.A., the trip to Voyeur was not part of the official agenda. The evening--described by some as an "after party"--was expensed as "meals," and subsequently reimbursed to Erik Brown, an OC political consultant whose biography paints him as a church-going family man.

So what's a Young Eagle? Basically it's someone under 45 who donates at a certain level (stratified by age bracket) and enjoys an increased participation in the party. This includes attending regional meetings, like last month's in Los Angeles, where members can "bring together lawmakers from their home states for candid discussions in an intimate environment."
