Sarah Denies Accepting $150,000 in Clothes

Sarah clearly has a medical condition that requires that she talk when she shouldn’t and contradict John McCain. Many children are sent to the corner for a time-out when this happens. I’m not sure what John McCain does when this happens: Does he count to 150,000?

Although the Republican National Committee has released financial statements clearly listing $150,000 worth of “personal accessories” for Sarah Palin and the Republicans have never denied the purchases, in Florida yesterday Sarah denied receiving $150,000 in clothes, hairstyling, and accessories. She offered up several statements that she perhaps considered to be excuses:

  • The clothes aren’t worth that much. (So is she claiming that people are submitting false receipts for reimbursement? Republican consultant Jeff Larson carried $132,457 alone on his credit card for Sarah’s purchases. Should he refund money to the Republican National Committee? Is he a Republican cross-dresser using her as a front?)
  • Most of the clothes have never left the campaign plane. (So there’s more that we haven’t seen?)
  • She’s frugal. (But isn’t this why they had to buy the clothes to begin with: She didn’t have outfits that the Republicans thought were appropriate for campaigning? To quote John McCain: “She needed clothes.” I fear that Sarah has a pattern of letting someone else pick up the bill for her. )
  • She’s being treated like Hillary and it’s a double-standard. (Not sure what her point is. Just read it. I can’t understand what’s she’s saying. Hillary buys her own clothes. Joe Biden buys his own clothes. John McCain buys his own clothes. Barack Obama buys his own clothes.)

I don’t know if Sarah is getting rogue again. But John McCain’s stance is that Sarah needed clothes and they’ll be donated after the election to charity. Sarah’s saying anything but what John is saying.

And a citizen watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, has filed a complaint against Sarah with the Federal Election Commission for misuse of political contributions.

Update: Sarah’s Makeup Artist Made $22,800 in two months in October.
