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. The committee spent $10,000 on “logistical trip consulting,” $3,600 to the bus driver and at least $7,000 on lodging.

Update. I want to be clear here, I am not that much of an Obot these days. I read Krugman’s and Atrios’s criticism of how Obama has handled the economy every day and I agree with a lot of it. I am not confident the
budget debt ceiling deal Obama makes will be a great one. I love Tbogg. But FDL’s attacks on Obama and his supporters are nuts, and they’re not worth taking seriously.
