And they thought $400 haircuts were an outrage

It is being reported that the RNC spent $150,ooo on fashions and accessories for Gov. Sarah Palin (and even her family and baby). The expense is listed as "campaign accessories." These expenses do not appear before September.

Records show that starting in early September bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St Louis and NYC totalled $49,425.74. They spent $75,062.63 at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis accessorizing the governor. $4,716.49 was spent on hair and makeup. There's more at the story.

What teh GOP have to say?
"With all of the important issues facing the country right now, it’s remarkable that we’re spending time talking about pantsuits and blouses. It was always the intent that the clothing go to a charitable purpose after the campaign," said McCain-Palin spokesperson Tracey Schmitt

Well that's very true. There are much more important issues to pick at. But this is a dirty campaign and the McPalins set the precedent.

Breaking. The AP is currently investigating how Gov Palin charged the state of Alaska for her children's travel expenses even when they weren't invited.
