Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s book sold very well, and one reason is her own political action committee bought up thousands of copies. (via Kos)

The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate had her political organization spend more than $63,000 on what her reports describe as “books for fundraising donor fulfillment.” The payments went to Harper Collins, her publisher, and in some instances to HSP Direct, a Virginia-based direct mail fundraising firm that serves a number of well-known conservative politicians and pundits.

Her PAC spent $8,000 on colorful bookmarks and $20,000 on a photographer and another aide to accompany her on the book tour, monies listed on her PAC as going to her publisher for travel expenses.
