    Question Did Palin Declare Her Clothes as Gifts?

    Did Palin Declare Her Clothes as Gifts?

    Sarah Palin is the gift that keeps on giving--at least to journalists. Newsweek got a pop this week when it disclosed new details of Palin's infamous shopping sprees:
    NEWSWEEK has also learned that Palin's shopping spree at high-end department stores was more extensive than previously reported. While publicly supporting Palin, McCain's top advisers privately fumed at what they regarded as her outrageous profligacy. 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. Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost. An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast," and said the truth will eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books.
    The Palin camp--such as it is--continues to deny she did anything wrong. But Alaska government watchdog Andrée McLeod is seeking information to determine whether Palin and her family kept any of these clothes. In recent months, McLeod has peppered Governor Palin's office with various Open Records Act requests. In response to a request McLeod filed in June, the Palin administration refused to release about 1100 emails from her office, claiming they covered confidential policy matters, even though the subject lines in some of these emails referred to a political foe, a journalist and non-policy topics. Now McLeod is focusing on Palin's Neiman Marcus free-for-all. This week, she filed a request for copies of "every record of gift disclosures assigned to Sarah Palin and all family members and/or extended family members (according to state regulations) since July 1, 2008."

    The question, of course, is, did Palin declare any of the clothes she and her family acquired as gifts? Or did she consider them loaners (as convicted Senator Ted Stevens unsuccessfully claimed in regards to the gifts he received)? Under Alaska state law, Palin generally has to disclose gifts over $150.00 that she or a family member receives. McCleod wants to see what gift disclosures, if any, Palin has filed.

    By the way, McLeod and others (including Mother Jones) have requests pending regarding the emails Palin has sent and received as governor (using her official and private accounts). Palin managed to delay producing these records until after the election. But the requests are still being processed by her office. By the time this information is released--and it may take months--will there still be much interest in the governor of Alaska?

    "Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin spent part of the weekend going through her clothing to determine what belongs to the Republican Party after it spent $150,000-plus on a wardrobe for the vice presidential nominee, according to Palin's father. Palin and John McCain's campaign faced a storm of criticism over the tens of thousands of dollars spent at such high-end stores as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus to dress the nominee. Republican National Committee lawyers are still trying to determine exactly what clothing was bought for Palin, what was returned and what has become of the rest.

    Palin's father, Chuck Heath, said his daughter spent the day Saturday trying to figure out what belongs to the RNC.

    "She was just frantically ... trying to sort stuff out," Heath said. "That's the problem, you know, the kids lose underwear, and everything has to be accounted for.

    "Nothing goes right back to normal," he said.

    Heath dismissed the clothes controversy as "ridiculous," and said his daughter told him the only clothing or accessories she had personally purchased in the last four months was a pair of shoes.

    RNC lawyers have been discussing with Palin whether what's left of the clothing and accessories purchased for her on the campaign trail will go to charity, back to stores or be paid for by Palin, a McCain-Palin campaign official said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the campaign hadn't authorized comment."

    I think it would be pretty obvious what had come from Nieman Marcus and Saks versus what came from an Alaskan thrift store.

    G.O.P. Paid Almost $55,000 for Palin Fashion Stylist

    By Michael Luo

    Updated

    A woman who appears from campaign finance records to have been Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s fashion stylist was paid $54,900 by the Republican National Committee, according to a new report filed with the Federal Election Commission.

    A charge for that amount to “Lisa Kline & Co.” for “Consulting-Campaign” appears on Oct. 17 in the R.N.C.’s latest campaign finance report. Ms. Kline is a New York stylist whose name had previously appeared alongside some of the much ballyhooed $150,000 in charges for clothing and other “campaign accessories” from luxury stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.

    Repeated calls to her home and office in New York over the last month or so since her name first appeared in reports were not returned.

    The newest report appears to show about $23,000 in additional charges labeled as “campaign accessories” from a variety of stores, including Saks, Neiman’s, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Victoria’s Secret, Brooks Brothers, Ann Taylor and Target.

    Republican officials have said that all of the clothing is now in their possession and will be turned over to charity.

    In addition, the McCain campaign paid Ms. Palin’s traveling hair stylist and makeup artist more than $110,000 for roughly two months of work, according to campaign finance records.

    As in the previous shopping charges, it appears from campaign finance records that people who initially purchased the clothes, or at least footed the charges, were subsequently reimbursed by the R.N.C.

    Interestingly, in the newest charges on campaign finance records, many of the people who initially footed the charges were campaign staffers, including Andrew Smith, Ms. Palin’s chief of staff, Christopher Edwards, who was in charge of advance for Ms. Palin, and Kristi Pulsfort, a member of the traveling press staff.

    Mr. Smith apparently footed the bill for more than $3,000 in charges at Aldo (a shoe store chain), Bloomingdales and Macy’s, all in Orlando, as well as Home Optics, a glasses and contacts store in Chugiak, Alaska, about a half hour from Ms. Palin’s home in Wasilla.

    A woman named Jeannie Etchart, who appears on the McCain campaign’s payroll, picked up the most in charges, totaling more than $14,000 from places like Banana Republic, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom.

    The appearance of the staffers’ names in the records matches up with an account in Newsweek’s book on the campaign that was the first to report that there were additional charges for clothing beyond the initial $150,000 and said Ms. Palin used low-level staffers to purchase some of the items and put them on their credit cards. Newsweek said the McCain campaign discovered this just before the election when they sought repayment.

    Update | 9:26 p.m.:
    Meghan Stapleton, a former senior adviser to the vice presidential campaign, sent a strongly worded e-mail statement:
    Governor Palin is focused on her duties as governor of the state of Alaska.

    With that said, news reports concerning purchases of services and accessories are disappointing considering Governor Palin did not authorize the expenditures made on behalf of the vice presidential campaign. The Governor was not consulted about these immaterial and inconsequential decisions as she was busy focusing on the substantive areas of the campaign and running the state of Alaska. The decisions reflected in this disclosure are financially poor decisions made by campaign staffers hired by the campaign and not the Governor. The Governor expected judicious decisions to be made and they weren’t.

    She is absolutely appalled at the news and the amount of money reportedly spent on the vice presidential campaign. To this day, the Governor has not seen a list of expenses for the campaign and its staff, and she does not know who benefited from all the expenditures reported.

    The campaign has now ended and Governor Palin has moved forward and is concerned with tackling the challenges confronting the people of Alaska.

    Apparently new filings from the GOP will also show that she spent quite a bit above the 150 thousand on accesories.

    Local news said, this morning, $4,000 was spent at Saks Fifth Avenue, $2,000 at Nieman Marcus, and, the real winner.... $150 at Victoria's Secret.

    Honestly, good for them, the Republicans spent campaign money to dress her family maybe if they had spent it wisely they'd have won (Just trying to make a point, I know they wouldn't), but thankfully they didn't.

    She always looks she's starring in a soft-core porn video about office sex where's she's the hot executive milf about to get submissively ravaged by the hunky office delivery guy.

    This is what women's rights has come to after all these decades? A dumb fool who shows off her hot bod and pretty face, and many women think she's just like all of them just because she shat out some kids and doesn't use big words.

    It's so obvious that she doesn't give a damn about those kids and just uses them as props to show how anti-abortion she is. Her husband must be secretly fuming at how she sexualizes herself so much for the viewing pleasure of other men.
