On Thursday, the Republican National Committee will file a disclosure with the Federal Election Commission that shows even more money spent on clothing for Sarah Palin during the course of the presidential campaign.

The initial revelation of the $150,000 spent on clothes for Palin and her family caused no small amount of controversy. This new disclosure is smaller, but still potentially embarrassing, especially since Palin has attempted to distance herself from the expenditures.

The National Journal's Edward T. Pound quotes an unnamed RNC official as saying the spending that will be disclosed is "less than $30,000."
