(Newser) – So much for being a woman of the people. GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has spent $4,700 on campaign "hair and makeup" since June 13, according to campaign finance filings. Bachmann made three major payments to Maryland-based stylist Tamara Robertson, who has also earned her keep as a makeup artist for Fox News. Bachmann's bills jumped once she joined the GOP race; she was previously known as someone who preferred to do her own styling, notes Mother Jones. No word yet from the Bachmann camp on the hefty payments. (Read more GOP candidates stories.)
