GOP Adds $30K to Sarah Palin's Fashion Fund

Turns out the evil mainstream media was lying to America again, and Sarah Palin didn't really spend $150,000 on designer clothing for her and her family.

It was $180,000!

The Republican National Committee will report Thursday that it spent about another $30,000 on clothes and accessories for Sarah Palin during her vice presidential bid, a GOP source tells Politico.

Palin took a major public relations hit when Politico revealed that the RNC in September shelled out $150,000 for clothes and accessories from high-end retailers for the Alaska governor, who built her political persona around a folksy, regular-gal demeanor.

The additional spending will be detailed on the committee's post-general election report, which is due to be filed with the Federal Election Commission before midnight.

The filing will show less than $30,000 worth of "accessories" purchased before the general election for Palin and her family in coordination with the McCain-Palin campaign, according to the source, who said any clothes in the committee's possession will be given to charity.

And the train wreck that is Sarah Palin's 2008 candidacy continues.....
