According to records reviewed by ABC News, Palin, 45, is using her political action committee to buy up copies of her book.
The Federal Election Commission filings show that Sarah PAC sent 63,000dollars to Palin's publisher, Harper Collins, for "books for fundraising donor fulfilment," reports the New York Daily News.
Sarah PAC is said to have spent another 8,000dollars on colourful bookmarks and another 20,000dollars for what looks like the cost of sending her personal photographer and another aide along on her book tour. The PAC describes these expenses as travel repayment to Harper Collins.
Going Rogue hit bookstores in mid-November last year and quickly surged to the top of the bookselling charts, with a print run of some 2.8 million copies.
