The conservative meltdown snowballs. New reports suggest Gov. Sarah Palin's more than $150,000 fashion makeover was largely an authorized shopping spree. Think Progress reports the Republican National Committee is not very happy and wants Palin to return the Ferragmo shoes, Valentino dresses and St. John Knits.
Sarah Palin left the national stage Wednesday, but the controversy over her role on the ticket flared as aides to John McCain disclosed new details about her expensive wardrobe purchases and revealed that a Republican Party lawyer would be dispatched to Alaska to inventory and retrieve the clothes still in her possession
Hopefully the Neiman-Marcus in Minneapolis and Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City have liberal return policies. Newsweek reveals the Alaska governor "spent 'tens of thousands' more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband."
