According to WashPost, Imelda McDonnell dipped into Governor Rolex’s PAC for new clothes and unspecified items. But, what the hell, a girl needs a new outift now and then . . . there’s the matching bag and shoes and shoes and more shoes.
RICHMOND – Virginia first lady Maureen McDonnell bought nearly $9,800 in clothing with money from her husband’s political action committee and tapped into his campaign and inaugural funds to buy $7,600 in mostly unspecified items, according to records and a representative for the PAC.
The spending is legal under Virginia’s lax campaign finance laws, which prohibit the conversion of political funds for private use only when a PAC or campaign committee disbands – not while it is operating.
“The spending is legal . . . ” Well, am I ever relieved.
