More donations mis-spent

It’s not quite the volume of Palin’s shopping spree – but it’s still hardly the type of spending that is expected by donors. 

WASHINGTON – The controversy over Republican National Committee spending has led to the resignation of its chief of staff…

The resignation of RNC chief of staff Ken McKay on Monday made him the highest-profile official to depart the central committee after the revelation that the committee had picked up a nearly $2,000 tab at a sex-themed California night club. The incident proved embarrassing and a midlevel staffer was dismissed, a move that was not enough to assuage social conservatives urging a fundraising boycott.

Palin also used low-level staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards. The McCain campaign found out last week when the aides sought reimbursement. One aide estimated that she spent “tens of thousands” more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband.
