These boots were made for walking all over Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster, Pa., where Palin campaigned Oct. 18.
GoGo boots are great for stompin' out those terrorist lovin' Socialist opponents, dontachknowit!
In a complaint filed to the US federal election commission, the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (Crew) argued that Republicans violated campaign finance rules when they spent $150,000 on clothes for Palin and her family.
The purchases came from a joint account, controlled by both national Republicans and John McCain's campaign. At issue is whether the "personal use" ban on buying clothes with campaign money - a reform promoted by McCain himself - applies to such joint accounts.
"It is ridiculous that [Republicans] would spend $150,000 to outfit a vice-presidential nominee and her family at any time, but it is more outrageous given the dire financial straits of so many Americans and the state of our economy," said Melanie Sloan, the executive director of Crew and a federal prosecutor during the Clinton administration.
"As if that isn't bad enough, the expenditures violate campaign finance law."
Only 10 shopping days before election day. Come on! It's time for you plumbers to dig down and write a check to the GOP to support Palin's obscene and wasteful ways...
If McCain is elected you won't get the tax break Obama will give you, but you can take pride in the fact that you helped elect a totally unqualified air-head Vice-President who is one 72 year-old heartbeat away from the Oval Office... and thanks to your donation she looks great!
