So, what happened to Sarah Palin's stylish campaign wardrobe? She claimed she had not asked for them, the only thing she ever asked for was a can of Dr Pepper (you can't wear that!) ,was going to wear her own more comfortable clothes, blah blah blah.
Then they were in the belly of the plane. That was before the GOP lawyers were sent to Wasilla to retrieve them. Sarah's father, Chuck Heath, said at the time: "She was just frantically ... trying to sort stuff out. That's the problem, you know, the kids lose underwear, and everything has to be accounted for. Nothing goes right back to normal."
Palin's father said his daughter told him the only clothing or accessories she personally had purchased in the past four months was a pair of shoes. (The pair auctioned on ebay, I wonder?)
We expect the clothes went back to the Lower 48 with the GOP lawyers sometime in November. Mmmmm... How come she may have worn a campaign outfit when she went to Georgia in December to win the election for Senator Chamblis?
The last we saw of the famous clothes was that photo of a stuffed black trash bag (minus the Georgia lovely cream jacket, I expect). No hangers, no protective covers, nothing like that. Sarah is so removed from the idea of greed or passion for material possessions, that she thought nothing of stuffing all those expensive designer outfits in simple, straightforward trash bags. Bless her.
There was talk of giving them to charity or auctioning them, netting a truckload of money, then giving the money to charity. Selling them on ebay would be a good bet. Those shoes, with an original price tag of $80, fetched over $2,000 on ebay!
I'll repeat the initial question: what really happened to Sarah Palin's campaign wardrobe?.
