Keeping Up Appearances in the AG's Race

Tuesday, August 17, 2010 - 04:20 PM

I'm going through campaign filings and came across one you don't see everyday:

Kathleen Rice's campaign reported spending $99 at Bergdorf Goodman's, for “clothing for film shoot.” Rice did just release her first television ad.

But a campaign spokesman said the expenditure was improperly described.

"The campaign staff member who entered the information into the report made a mistake with respect to the memo and address fields. The expenditure related to the district attorney's hair appointment the morning of the race's televised WABC debate," spokesman Eric Phillips told me.
