McCain staffers characterized Palin’s clothing spending spree as the “Wasilla Hillbillies.” It is now coming out that the famous Palin wardrobe expense of $150,000 is only part of the story. According to Newsweek:
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.
It’s hard to believe, but apparently Palin is even stupider and more frivolous than we believed during the campaign. Yikes!
