$180K worth of Palin’s returned campaign wardrobe reportedly sitting in garbage bags

January 23, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Sarah Palin took a lot of grief during her run as the Republican vice presidential candidate for her reportedly lavish wardrobe purchases for herself and her family, including designer fashion from the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, and Ferragamo. She rebutted these accusations saying that her wardrobe was the property of the Republican National Committee (RNC).  Her campaign spokeswoman is quoted as saying, “It was always the intent that the clothing go to a charitable purpose after the campaign.”

Now NewMajority.com is reporting that roughly $180,000 worth of clothing worn by Sarah Palin during her run is stuffed in trash bags at RNC headquarters in Washington D.C.

While many would find that kind of spending on clothing rather frivolous, Palin did at least follow through on her promise to give the clothes to the RNC so they could handle the donation process, according to the report.  But apparently, the RNC did no such thing, as the clothes are still in their headquarters in garbage bags. A spokesperson for the RNC spokesman told NewMajority that the clothes that Palin gave back had been “inventoried and will be appropriately dispersed to various charities.” The question is why is it taking months to donate the clothes to charity?
