No clothes with campaign cash

No clothes with campaign cash

I'm so Iowa-centric that I thought of Not Tom Harkin first rather than Sarah Palin when I read this: "Candidates can't use campaign money to improve their wardrobes, the Federal Election Commission said Thursday in a ruling that nonetheless dismissed a complaint against four congressional candidates who did just that."

These campaigns sure are expensive.

Failed GOP Senate candidate Christopher Reed, who may be running for Not Dave Loebsack in 2010, was not one of the four candidates named in the FEC ruling, but was bashed by his own team last year for spending some of his very very limited campaign funds on clothing and haircuts.
