The Republican National Committee finance chief, the guy in charge of the purse strings when staffers charged nearly $2,000 for "meals" at a Los Angeles bondage-themed club, has been fired.
Rob Bickhart will be replaced by Mary Heitman, former finance director for the Republican Governors Association, Politico
Bickhart's dismissal comes as the RNC tries to lure back donors who were put off by reports earlier this year
of the after-hours outing to Voyeur West Hollywood by the Young Eagles, the invitation-only group of young donors to the Republican Party. In March, the RNC fired Allison Meyers
, the staffer who approved the nightclub expense.
On Friday, RNC Chairman Michael Steele also let go deputy finance director Debbie LeHardy, according to Politico. LeHardy was reimbursed for purchases at clothing stores that were listed as "office supplies" in financial disclosure documents.
