Controversial Palin Speech Has Been Spoken

For those readers interested in following up on the story surrounding Sarah Palin’s speaking appearance at Cal State Stanislaus, previously blogged here, the Los Angeles Times reports that the June 25 event “grossed more than $450,000 in cash and in-kind donations, for a net cash total of $200,000.”  A foundation official stated that a third of the net receipts will be used for scholarships, and the remainder will fund university programs.  The event, sponsored by the nonprofit Cal State Stanislaus Foundation, reportedly triggered a lawsuit against the university by a watchdog group seeking disclosure of the Palin contract, and an inquiry into the foundation’s finances by California State Attorney General Jerry Brown.
