Group: Other candidates used donor money on duds

WASHINGTON - December 2, 2008 - A watchdog group says in a complaint filed Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission that at least five campaigns bought clothing.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics says the campaigns of Democratic Reps. Loretta Sanchez of California and Rob Andrews of New Jersey, Republican candidates Bill Dew of Utah and William Breazeale of North Carolina and Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr each spent hundreds of dollars on clothing.

The group says that violates a ban on personal use of campaign money. It filed a complaint against the Republican National Committee earlier for buying tens of thousands of dollars worth of clothing for /*Palin*/, the party's vice presidential nominee.
