$150,000 in Clothes: Tsk tsk tsk

So here is an interesting Tid-bit:

Under prohibited uses of Chapter 14 of the U.S. Code for use of contributions for certain uses we see:
(b) Prohibited use (1) In general A contribution or donation described in subsection (a) of this section shall not be converted by any person to personal use. (2) Conversion For the purposes of paragraph (1), a contribution or donation shall be considered to be converted to personal use if the contribution or amount is used to fulfill any commitment, obligation, or expense of a person that would exist irrespective of the candidate's election campaign or individual's duties as a holder of Federal office, including- (A) a home mortgage, rent, or utility payment; (B) a clothing purchase; (C) a noncampaign-related automobile expense; (D) a country club membership; (E) a vacation or other noncampaign-related trip; (F) a household food item; (G) a tuition payment; (H) admission to a sporting event, concert, theater, or other form of entertainment not associated with an election campaign; and (I) dues, fees, and other payments to a health club or recreational facility.

** I am sure that the law will be contorted by these freaks, but it does seem clear to the literate individual. To be totally fair, I could actually see buying clothes for the VP running mate, but some of the expense went to clothes for her red-neck husband. It is not the fault of the American people (even other hunters) that the man only has jeans and flannel shirts.

And to the MIS-quote:"...There is a place in hell reserved for women who do not support other women..." (Sarah Palin, Carson City, 2008)

I give you the Original Statement: "There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." (Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright)

There you go Sarah, I defended your right to shop and even helped school you in the art of referencing a popular quote. Now can I please keep my right to not have a rapist baby or not have to pay out of pocket for the rape-kit that would put him behind bars? This way at least 2 seats in hell will open up!!!!
