    Double standard ,Law maker seeks to have speaking fee revealed ?

    TURLOCK, Calif. --

    Amid a furor created by people demanding to know how former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is getting paid for a gala speech at California State University, Stanislaus, officials say that no public funds will be used to support the event.
    "Furthermore, no existing foundation funds are being used either. The event is self-funded. All funds used have been given for the purpose of putting on this event in order to raise money to benefit university programs and student services," Matt Swanson, president of the CSU Stanislaus Foundation Board of Directors, said in a statement.

    Palin is scheduled to headline a black-tie fundraiser on campus in June. A student group is organizing a protest and its own event in response. A professor has started a Facebook group in protest.

    In addition, Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, is demanding to know how much the university is paying Palin, who commands up to $100,000 per lecture.
    Swanson said in a statement that Palin's contract is confidential per the university's agreement with the Washington Speakers Bureau.

    Didn't the right wing conservatives attempt to ban President Obama from speaking at Notre Dame last year?

    If universities can turn down Ayers, why can't they turn down Palin?

    This is what communists do. They marginalize the opposition by accusing them of heinous behavior. They target youth and encourage them to violently oppose anything which challenges the authority of the communist party, and then blame their opponents when their plans come to fruition and someone is killed.

    They'll keep saying "it's hate speech, it must be silenced!" and "they're violent killers!" because that's the way they terrorize people into submission.

    President Obama had asked that a cross be removed from the podium where he was to speak. A valid request for a valid reason, but one that the student body and faculty did not feel it appropriate to do as it is a religious institution.

    At least that is how I recall it.

    I guess you missed the part where the University INVITED her? Some students are trying to shut down free speech aided and abetted by some Professor. A State Senator is trying to intimidate the school into canceling the speech.

    They can turn anyone down that they want.

    Why is this even a topic of conversation?

    There are some on the left who simply do not tolerate free speech unless it agrees with their own ideology. It is shameful, but nothing the loony left does surprises me these days. Many lefties live in a fantasy world where anyone who disagree with them is automatically branded a misogynistic homophobic racist. Why would anyone be afraid of Sarah Palin? She's a freakin' lightweight!! But she does challenge Obama - therefore she must be a racist!!!

    I am a conservative but:

    Maybe the University should have polled those that financially support the university with tuition before inviting a controversial political figure?
