Greg Meffert: $5,100 on Strippers, Vitter Would Be Proud!

May 6, 2009 by

peep-showThe further adventures of our wild and wacky former technology chief, Greg “Put It On The Card” Meffert are coming to light, and let me tell you kids this is a family values extravaganza!

In his last 18 months working for the city Meffert racked up over $130,000 on the credit card billed to a subcontractor working for him at City Hall. The part that really gets me though is the absolutely insane bill he ran up on strippers. As Chris Rock puts it “No matter what a stripper tells you, there is no sex in the champagne room.”

Quotes via, running commentary from your truly:

On March 15, 2006, Meffert went to San Francisco and spent more than $2,700 at the Gold Club, “San Francisco’s premier gentleman’s club, ” according to the strip club’s Web site.

Think about it, close to three grand at a strip club. Those had better have been some impressive lap dances because that sure as hell could not simply be the bill for all the overpriced drinks. I guess he had to get his family values on before the next afternoon.

The next day, his wife, Linda, and their two children joined him, and they went to Yosemite National Park for five days.

Total cost charged to the NetMethods card for less than a week in California: $10,463.

Zippity do dah day! I’d love to be able to spend 10K+ on a one week vacation! Oh wait, that’s right, he didn’t ! It was all billed to Mark St. Pierre, the subcontrator who reported to him at City Hall. I guess St. Pierre was bucking for a good performance review…

Meffert used the NetMethods card on strippers in New Orleans, too. He spent $1,000 at Rick’s Cabaret International in the French Quarter in March 2005. Two weeks later, he spent $1,400 in one night at Visions on Downman Road. He spent another $1,160 at Visions a year later.

There you go, at least this time his stripper habit was fueling the local economy in New Orleans.

Go take a look at the catalogue of corruption detailed on They have scans of the credit card statements and much more over there. Check it out, its nauseating to say the least.
