Presidential campaigns are funded by tax payers and small donors (remember there's a $2,000 limit on donations)--so she's spent other people's money in a way most inconsistent with her own campaign rhetoric.
Quoted for epic truth. If it was her OWN 150 grand I'd be loling at the media, but using campaign money like this is ridiculous.
Not to mention that she's been trying to ride on a folksy, average-Joe image; using so much campaign money for clothes really contradicts that.
