(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.
