The US Republican National Committee has fired a member of staff who helped organise a $1,946 visit to a sex-themed Hollywood club and the party says it will recoup the money from a donor who also participated.
The episode is the latest in a string of questionable spending by the RNC as Republicans prepare for a costly election season.
An RNC memo says the outing to Voyeur West Hollywood involved members of the “Young Eagles” Republican group who were in Los Angeles.
