Erik Brown, GOP Fall Guy?
Is Erik Brown--a pillar of his church and the Orange County Young Republicans political director--the hypocrite who spent nearly $2,000 in Republican National Committee funds at the bondage-themed club Voyeur in West Hollywood?
Or, is he the patsy in RNC chairman Michael Steele's cover-up?
A beloved columnist from the Weekly's past answers definintely the latter.
"I know Erik Brown really well; we used to do a radio show together," Commie Girl herself, Rebecca Schoenkopf, tells Wonkette. "He is the most uptight, constipated conservative Christian ever, and while that may sound like a perfect candidate for the topless lesbian thing, there is simply NO FUCKING WAY it was he. That kind of shit would make him cry for his mommy. He is clearly, CLEARLY the fall guy on this."
See the federal disclosure forms that show the Voyeur expenses and some of Brown's colorful tweets here.
The New York Times reports Brown has been fired and the RNC is demanding the money spent at Voyeur be returned.
The U.S. Senate campaign for Assemblyman Chuck DeVore (R-Irvine) announced they have severed all ties with Brown, a political consultant who has also worked for governor candidate Steve Poizner.
Sounds like someone's gonna need to unwind.
Assume the position, maggot!
