Here’s one way to get your book on the bestseller list — money laundering:
Sarah Palin has been using her political action committee to buy up thousands of copies of her book, “Going Rogue.”
The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate had her political organization spend more than $63,000 on what her reports describe as “books for fundraising donor fulfillment.” The payments went to Harper Collins, her publisher.
On the web site of her PAC, Palin posted a special letter to supporters upon the release of her book. “My book, ‘Going Rogue,’ is dedicated to you — to Patriots — who fight for freedom!” she wrote in the note, which concludes with the opportunity to donate.
