FEC dismissed frivolous complaint RE: Palin's clothes

More news from the story that Will. Not. Die.

Hopefully this puts the nail in the coffin. The FEC dismissed the frivolous complaint that accused Palin of using RNC donations for personal use.

FEC dismisses complaint over Palin clothing
By SHARON THEIMER – 1 day ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Election Commission has dismissed a complaint over the $150,000-plus designer wardrobe the Republican Party bought to outfit vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, the good-government group that filed the complaint, argued that candidates aren't supposed to use donor money for personal expenses such as clothes. The FEC ruled Tuesday that the ban doesn't apply to party money, however.
That AP story goes on to list exactly what she bought, where she bought it and how much it cost. They even quoted "experts" saying the FEC's ruling was incorrect. That's the AP showing its true colors trying to paint Palin as a disconnected bimbo on a shopping spree. Unfortunately, that's the only halfway decent article from MSM I could find on the matter.
