Sarah Palin’s $150,000+ Campaign Clothing Spree

I’ll ask the same ol’ question again. Recession? What recession? This is absolutely insane! Americans are losing their homes and their jobs left, right and center and here comes the news that Governor Sarah Palin have spent more than $150,000 on clothing and accessories since early September 2008 for her campaign. Who’s footing the bill? Republican taxpayers! Based on records, Sarah’s shopping spree includes $49,425.74 from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York, $75,062.63 from Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis. $4,716.49 was spent on hair and make-up and September payments were also made to Barney’s ($789.72) and Bloomingdale’s NY ($5,102.71).

My gawd!! Gurl, I don’t know about you but that’s a heck of a lot of Balenciaga and Lanvin! Oh who am I kidding? Maybe not. But still. I hope she gets to keep the clothes after the campaign.

Let’s take a look at Sarah Palin’s recent sartorial choices, shall we? Click click click!
