Libertarian Presidential Candidate Bob Barr Liked Those Campaign Cash Clothes Too!
And while the press and blogs made a big deal out of Sarah Palin and clothes, Bob Barr and a few others were doing the same thing.
WASHINGTON (AP) _ Turns out Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wasn't the only candidate with donor-financed duds.
At least five candidates used campaign money for clothing, according to a complaint that a watchdog group filed Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington said the campaigns of Democratic Reps. Loretta Sanchez of California and Rob Andrews of New Jersey, Republican candidates Bill Dew of Utah and William Breazeale of North Carolina and Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr each spent hundreds of dollars on clothing. Read it all at the Chicago Tribune.
And all the while the press blew this story up, old Bob sat quietly...What a man. Now his campaign says they did nothing wrong. I never had a problem with the clothes ordeal. I do find it humorous that Barr sat silently as they grilled Palin...wearing his donor paid for duds, only now to cry we did nothing wrong.
