RNC cleans house in “Young Eagles,” according to Hotline On Call:
Allison Meyers, director of the RNC’s “Young Eagles” program, was terminated yesterday after reports that the RNC reimbursed a donor for a nearly $2K expense at the Voyeur nightclub in West Hollywood.
A CA GOP consultant, Erik Brown, was reimbursed for the expense after a Young Eagles event in Beverly Hills. A CA blog reported that an RNC staffer’s credit card was declined at the club, so Brown grudgingly put the expense on his own card.
RNC spokesman Doug Heye refused to discuss any individual staffers, or to confirm that Meyers was fired.
But several sources said Meyers both organized the Jan. 31 fundraiser at the Beverly Hills Hilton and attended the after-party at the nightclub. The fundraiser was held for the group of donors Meyers was responsible for, a group that solicits contributions from donors under 45 years old.
