oh bondage, up yours!

So, Erik Brown "donates" $10,000 to the Republican National Committee and then bills the RNC $2000 for dinner and a quaint little Conservative trip to S&M Lesbian club. I'm going to go ahead and assume that this is not the first reimbursement he's asked for and receive for various dinners and hobnobbing efforts. So if you give $10,000, and then get reimbursed for, let's say $10,000, how is that not a  benign form of money laundering? I'm not saying there's anything nefarious going on (well, besides visits to nightclubs inspired by Eyes Wide Shut), or even restricted to the Republican Party, but the whole arrangement seems a little odd, to say the least. The practice is probably widespread and normal, but it is jarring to see such a blatant, salacious example of it.
