Former President Trump’s Save America PAC, which he launched after the 2020 presidential election to challenge the results and raise money for candidates he backs, paid $60,000 to a fashion designer known for stylized former first lady Melania Trump, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.
Filings show PAC made four payments to Herve Pierre Braillard for “strategy advice,” paying him $6,000 on April 7 and $18,000 on May 4, June 3, and June 24.
Braillard is a French-American designer who styled Melania Trump when she was first lady. He had also done the hair for other first ladies, including Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama, according to USA Today.
Save America PAC did not immediately return a request from The Hill for comment on the purpose of the payments.
The FEC prohibits PAC candidates from spending money on personal items, but Save America is a leadership PAC, which has fewer restrictions.
The House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 Capitol uprising criticized Save America PAC for raising millions of dollars for voter fraud allegations it knew to be false. People were encouraged to donate to an election defense fund, but two former Trump aides testified before the committee that the fund did not exist and was a marketing tactic.
