Todd Palin says spending during Sarah's campaign not their fault
Todd Palin stated today that the lavish spending on clothes during wife Sarah's campaign was out of thier control and was not their fault. Todd Palin reveals to the Men's Journal magazine that the more than $150,000 spent on clothes, accessories and beauty services was through their team of handlers and had little to do with them.
"She never went to Saks, or any of that stuff," he said. "You come into a campaign late, you put all your trust into the team, you got people who are working on VP ops for a long time, and we're just focused on debate prep. I couldn't give a rat's (expletive) about clothes. Please. I mean these are my Sunday go-to-meeting jeans!"
Both Palin and McCain were criticized for over spending during their campaign: it included a $75,062 shopping expidition at Neiman Marcus and a $49,425 shopping spree at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Palin marketed herself as a 'hockey mom', but this did not match her supposed spending during the campaign.
