A Girl’s Best Friend: The Republican National Committee has recently reported that they spent $150,000 dollars to clothe and accessorize Governor Palin. This includes $75,000 at Neiman Marcus and $49,000 dollars at
Saks Fifth Avenue. The Committee has also reported to have spent nearly $5,000 dollars in hair and make-up, since Senator John McCain selected Sarah in late August.
But Wait…There’s More: Palin’s spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt said that “it has always been the intent that the clothing go to a charitable purpose after the campaign.” Not to mention that as of September 30th, the RNC has reported to have $77 Million dollars, while the DNC reported to have $27.4 Million dollars left for their campaigns.
It’s Ridiculous! If you ask me, as a former Revenue Officer and an American Taxpayer, this seems a little ludicrous. Honestly, party affiliations aside, this just seems a little unfair. I don’t even earn over $100,000 dollars a year, let alone spend it on clothes! And I’ll probably never make anywhere near $27.4 or $77 Million dollars. This type of spending makes us wonder where our money is really going.
