Palin’’s $180K worth of clothes in garbage bags at Republican Committee headquartersJanuary 24th, 2009 - 1:00 pm ICT by ANI
New York, January 24 (ANI): Approximately 180,000-dollar worth of clothing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin wore during her vice-presidential bid last year is, reportedly, stuffed in trash bags at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington D.C.
It is said that Palin had given the clothes to the RNC so that they would donate the wardrobe.
However, according to reports, the clothes still remain in garbage bags kept at the RNC headquarters.
Palin, who has already faced a lot of flak for her expensive clothing, rebutted the accusations by saying that her wardrobe was the property of the RNC.
“It was always the intent that the clothing go to a charitable purpose after the campaign,” the New York Daily News quoted her campaign spokeswoman as telling NewMajority.
The beautiful clothes are from upscale retailers like Saks and Neiman Marcus.
A spokesperson for the RNC spokesman said that the clothes that Palin gave back had been “inventoried and will be appropriately dispersed to various charities.” (ANI)
