Sarah Palin's Luxe Speaking Contract Spurs Investigation in California
Posted: 04/14/10

A document found in the trash at a California state university trash reveals the luxe treatment Sarah Palin will receive when she speaks there this summer -- and has triggered a state investigation into university officials' refusal to disclose details of the contract, the Associated Press reports.

Students at California State University, Stanislaus, uncovered the five-page document after hearing school administrators might be shredding documents related to Palin's June 25 speech to the school's Stanislaus Foundation, the Associated Press reported. According to the contract, audience questions will be pre-screened, Palin's water bottles will have bendable straws and she'll get three rooms at a luxury hotel. The former vice presidential candidate will get first-class plane tickets. If she doesn't fly commercial, "the private aircraft MUST BE a Lear 60 or larger," according to the contract, dated March 16.

For the post-speech Q&A period, Palin requires that "questions are to be collected from the audience in advance, pre-screened and a designated representative . . . shall ask questions directly of the speaker [Palin] to avoid delay time with a roving microphone in the audience."

The contract doesn't state how much Palin is to be paid. She reportedly gets about $100,000 per speaking engagement.

The document was made public by state Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco). Earlier he had requested a copy of the Palin contract but Cal State Stanislaus officials refused to turn it over, claiming a nondisclosure clause. Yee insisted it was part of the public record.

In announcing the investigation, state Attorney General Jerry Brown said, "This is not about Sarah Palin. The issues are public disclosure and financial accountability in organizations embedded in state-run universities."

Foundation board president Matt Swanson did not immediately respond to the AP's requests for comment on the probe.

On Tuesday, it was reported that the former Alaska governor has made an estimated $12 million-plus since resigning last July.
