CNBC Paid for Sarah Palin’s Outerwear

The WaPo’s Reliable Source reports CNBC paid for $300 for clothing worn by Gov. Sarah Palin for an interview Maria Bartiromo conducted with Palin just days before she was thrust on the world stage.

The interview about oil, energy and drilling was conducted in Palin’s Anchorage office, where she wore her own suit and high heels, according to CNBC sources. The producers asked to continue the interview in the oil fields; since Palin didn’t have outdoor gear at the office, a CNBC assistant raced out to buy a jacket and hiking shoes for the location shoot.

The network didn’t give it another thought, but Palin dutifully reported it as a gift on her disclosure form.
