One GOP staffer has been fired as a result of a $2,000 night out at an adult-themed club in West Hollywood.

The Republican National Committee says the evening began with an official dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel for a group called the Young Eagles – GOP donors under age 45.

The problem was that the party later moved to Club Voyeur, known for its pornographic wallpaper and bondage-themed hostess costumes.

Allison Meyers was director of the Young Eagles program. She tried to pay the nearly $2,000 tab at Club Voyeur on her credit card. It was rejected. So she asked one of those at the party, GOP marketing expert Erik Brown, to pick up the bill, promising the RNC would reimburse him.

The RNC has fired Allison Meyers. Erik Brown has lost clients, including GOP Senate candidate Chuck DeVore.
