Who was the highest paid staffer of the McCain-Palin campaign during the first half of October? Amy Strozzi, Sarah Palin’s makeup artist.
Ms. Strozzi, who was nominated for an Emmy award for her makeup work on the television show “So You Think You Can Dance?”, was paid $22,800 for the first two weeks of October alone, according to the records. The campaign categorized Ms. Strozzi’s payment as “PERSONNEL SVC/EQUIPMENT.”
Wow. Clothing – $150,000, makeup for two weeks – $22,800, losing an election – priceless.
