    Palin's $180,000 Campaign Clothes "Stuffed In Trash Bags" At RNC Headquarters: NewMajority (VIDEO, SLIDESHOW)

    NewMajority has a report today that Sarah Palin's infamous wardrobe has not been given to charity as promised by the McCain campaign after the amazing bill was revealed in October.
    McCain even told the press that "one-third of the clothing was "given back."
    But for reasons that remain mysterious, the clothes remain stashed at the RNC's Washington, D.C., headquarters. A source close to the issue told NewMajority that the clothes are "in the process" of being donated, and an RNC spokesman corroborated, saying the clothes have indeed been returned from Palin, "inventoried and will be appropriately dispersed to various charities." Attempts for an explanation of when and where the clothes will be donated went unanswered, and the governor's Alaska office does not comment on campaign issues.

    The fact that the clothes have not been donated or publicly accounted for, however, has angered some big donors - who want to know exactly how their money was spent, and who are already enraged by the extravagant wardrobe figure. They say it's time for the RNC to air its dirty laundry, if you will.

    obama's 160 million dollar pile of ingaugural trash picked up off washington streets and stuffed into trash bags. We have no information on what he is going to do about the giant carbon footprint left by all those donkey farters!

    you know, they ought to have an auction for the clothes on ebay (I am serious), and donate the money to charity.....it would give the charity more.

    I would bet there are plenty of ladies out there that would pay a pretty penny to own the actual clothes that Sarah wore and her kids wore during her historical campaign...why not make the MOST of this incident and end with "A Good Thing"?

    who knows, they could get a half a million for them all on ebay from some crazed fans of hers....? And this would do some great good for those in need.

    Care

    Hopefully the people they donate them to will do this Care and feed alot of hungry people.

    Imagine actually expecting millions of people to not create some trash.

    YES TM, if the RNC doesn't do it, the charity where the clothes go, should do it! I can guarantee you they will get more value out of them than just putting them on the rack at the salvation army kind of thing!

    I'm sure Michele Obama would put them to good use....

    Let them out a little, maybe to size 16 or 18 and Michele could wear them ......

    They gotta be better than the rags she wore on Jan. 20....
