Several young donors attended Voyeur, the Los Angeles nightclub at the center of the latest RNC controversy, after a Young Eagles event in February. Erik Brown, a GOP consultant from Orange County who picked up the tab, was able to have the nearly $2,000 charge reimbursed by the committee in February.
As director of the Young Eagles program since early 2009, Meyers was tasked with cultivating younger Republican donors in their 30s and 40s.
She was dismissed from her position on Monday after news of the outing became the latest in a series of headaches for the RNC and its chairman, Michael Steele.
Meyers did not respond to an e-mail and phone call seeking comment. RNC spokesman Doug Heye would not comment when asked about Meyers.
RNC Chief of Staff Ken McKay e-mailed committee members on Monday announcing the firing but did not name Meyers.
"That person was aware that this activity was not eligible for reimbursement and had been previously counseled on this very subject," McKay wrote. "Accordingly, that staff person has been terminated."
