CNBC Field Dresses Palin in Hiking Boots and Jacket

palin_bartiromo_829.thumbnail.jpgIn August, when Maria Bartiromo wanted to move her interview with Sarah Palin about oil, energy and drilling from the governor’s office to outdoors into the oil fields, Sarah who was wearing her own suit and heels, needed some outdoors duds, so a staffer was dispatched to buy a jacket and hiking shoes for the location shoot, though appears from photos that Bartiromo had an appropriate outfit with her.

Palin reported the $300 worth of clothes as a gift on her disclosure form.

Another nifty fact obtained under the Freedom of Information Act: Each attendee at the Republican governors’ meeting last spring received a pair of $1000 custom cowboy boots.
