Palin political committee spent tens of thousands on bus trip

Via: Washinton Post

Sarah Palin’s political action committee spent tens of thousands of dollars covering the costs of the former Alaska governor’s “One Nation” East Coast bus tour this spring — a trip that Palin (R) has repeatedly characterized as a “FAMILY VACATION.”

According to a list of itemized expenditures filed by SarahPAC to the Federal Elections Committee and published Thursday, Palin’s committee spent:

– nearly $14,000 on the “bus wrap” that festooned the family’s tour bus with images of the Liberty Bell, Constitution and American flag

– $10,000 on “logistical trip consulting

– $3,600 to the bus driver

– at least $7,000 on lodging

But the total for the trip is likely much more, because many bills came in after the June 30 filing deadline, Sarah PAC treasurer Tim Crawford said in an interview. In addition, many other expenses associated with the trip, such as photography, videography, Internet fundraising and airfare, are more difficult to account for.

(One item in the report describes $6,999 paid to an air charter company called Republican Presidential Travel on June 9, at the tail end of “One Nation.”)



Fox News – June 23, 2011

Sarah Palin on Wednesday denied reports that her “One Nation” bus tour is winding down. It is on hold while she returns to Alaska for jury duty, she said, but she is “looking forward to hitting the open road again.”

The former Alaska governor responded to the reports on her Facebook page, saying the next leg of the tour will happen “when the time comes” but that nobody should “jump to conclusions.”

“Imagine our surprise when reading media reports today that the ‘One Nation Tour’ has been cancelled. Why  didn’t anyone tell me? Oh, wait, that’s because it hasn’t been cancelled,” she wrote.

Palin said the “coming weeks are tight because civic duty calls (like most everyone else, even former governors get called up for jury duty) and I look forward to doing my part just like every other Alaskan.”



jury duty?
