RNC Loses Dry Cleaning Ticket For Palin's Clothes
Juneau – The Republican National Committee frantically searched today for the dry cleaning receipts for clothes worn by Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family. The clothes, bought by a wealthy Republican donor, were to be returned to the RNC for donation to charity. Governor Palin brought the clothes to A-1 Dry Cleaning located at 250 Ted Stevens Blvd, received the tickets for the clothing and gave the tickets to the RNC. However, the RNC misplaced the tickets and A-1 Dry Cleaning owner Tucker Yap refuses to release the clothes without the tickets.
“You can’t just waltz on in here and say ‘that’s my suit’,” said Mr. Yap, “I need some proof. No ticket, no clothes. I don’t know how they do it in fancy places, but that’s the way we do it here in Alaska.”
RNC members searched their wallets, the car and their hotel room. Hotel employees denied seeing the dry cleaning tickets. Marcia Funebre, of the RNC, said that other evidence would be supplied to A-1 Dry Cleaning to document ownership, but Mr. Yap was unmoved.
“You need the ticket,” Mr. Yap explained to Ms Funebre. “All you got here is a picture of Sarah Palin wearing a suit. As far as I’m concerned if she’s wearing it, it’s hers – do you wear other peoples’ clothes?”
The RNC insists that it will continue to search for the dry cleaning tickets.
