So I've been noticing this story:

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.

Originally it was believed that RNC chairman Michael Steele spent the money at the club himself, but no, it wasn't Steele:

The RNC said Monday it is investigating the disbursement of the money to Erik Brown of Orange, Calif., who has donated about $10,000 to GOP candidates and is listed in public records as the CEO of Dynamic Marketing Inc., with offices in California and Washington.

So, has Brown made it really, really easy for us to snicker at him? Is he going turn out to be precisely the sort of hypocrite we'd expect a Republican in this situation to be?


...Erik is married to Alison Brown, a graduate of Chapman University and an MBA student at UCI’s Merage School of business.... A former director of the Sunday school, Alison and Erik reside in Las Flores, California and are actively involved in the ministries of their local church.

(Emphasis added.)

Oh, Erik -- thanks for the gift.


UPDATE: Via Dissenting Jusrice, I see that Brown's bio has been pulled down at the above link. Here's what it looked like (click to enlarge):
