Palin spent more than $150,000 on clothes

This video from the USA is called McCain Responds to Palin Clothes Budget.

From Think Progress in the USA:

Palin spent more on clothes than previously reported, McCain aides furious at her ‘outrageous profligacy.’

In a new 50,000 word article on the presidential campaigns that will come out tomorrow, Newsweek reports that Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) spent far more on clothing than the $150,000 reported last month. According to a preview by Politico’s Mike Allen, “McCain’s top advisers privately fumed at what they regarded as her outrageous profligacy“:

`One senior aide said that Nicolle Wallace had told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family — clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. According to two knowledgeable sources, a vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill. Palin also used low-level staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards. The McCain campaign found out last week when the aides sought reimbursement. One aide estimated that she spent ‘tens of thousands’ more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband.´

Newsweek reports that McCain “rarely spoke to Palin during the campaign, and aides kept him in the dark about the details of her spending on clothes because they were sure he would be offended.”

It is to be hoped that the only things that we will hear any more about Sarah Palin are 1. Her impeachment as governor for abuse of power. 2. A cameo role for her in a Flintstones remake movie, as she believes dinosaurs and people lived at the same time.
