Ex RNC Staffer Allison Meyers, charge your scapegoating to the game.



Allison Meyers, director of the Young Eagles program, was fired by the Republican National Committee for their latest public relations fiasco. Apparently $2,000 was wasted at a bondage-themed night club called Voyeur. I guess the Young Republicans wanted a nice fun filled evening to unwind after a hard day of work. Or maybe they just really enjoy erotic entertainment (Republican sexual repression). The Young Eagles program is for donors under 45 years old but 45 years is too old to be a Young Eagle. Meyers slipped up when she asked a fellow Republican to help pay for the evening and then had the RNC reimburse him afterwards. She tried to put $1,946.25 on her credit card but it just didn’t work out for her. I guess she should have talked to the accountants before stepping out for the evening. You have to wonder why the credit card wouldn’t take for that particular amount. All of that money that the Bush Administration Halliburton made off the war and nothing to show for it? If I was at the RNC back then, we would have been flush with cash but I digress… So now Meyers gets the heave-ho because….well RNC Chairman Michael Steele can’t take the hit for this. He is too high up to take blame for this one. In war, the foot soldiers are always the first to get killed. Generals don’t fight wars because they are ordering the foot soldiers to fight. I hope that Meyers has a backup plan. Or maybe the RNC told her they would take care of her after the fact. Either way she took one for the team. I still find it hard to believe that Meyers didn’t have to answer to anyone regarding purchases. Everyone knows that she wasn’t in charge of the money by herself. They say accountability starts at the top. Yeah Right!!! Some needs to tell Meyers to charge this one to the game.

Yep, she has to go. You know Money Mike wasn't going out like that.

This reminds me of the Desirée Rogers firing. In Desirée's case she took the heat that should have been aimed at the head of the Secret Service. In this case this woman took the heat that should have been aimed at the RNC bigwigs.

The Smoking Ace - Money Mike? Yep, that sounds about right.. ha ha ha

Val - yeah Desiree was put on front street. Although she could have handled the situation better (my opinion) she is not to blame for those people sneaking in. But hey..scapegoating is not just for men. Equal Opportunity for all.

But what's diferent about this post and the one below?
In this one, the RNC is being blamed for going to strip clubs - below, a girl is charged with having her own.
I guess it's only bad if it can't be taxed or if it's the taxpayers' money.
