Sarah Palin Slams Jerry Brown – Sarah Palin has come under increased fire from a number of individuals after she made a comment about students “dumpster diving” to find out how much she makes when she speaks. She made headlines when she addressed the students at the California State University. The school, which is notoriously, broke had to pay her quite a bit of money to come speak in front of the students. Officials refused to divulge information relating to her contract with the school, and how much she was earning from the speaking engagement despite the fact of being strapped for cash.
“Students who spent their valuable, precious time diving through dumpsters before this event in order to silence someone … what a wasted resource,” she told the crowd dining in the campus cafeteria. The comment has landed her in hot water in recent days.
The material that was found by the students showed that Palin had had her first class airfare covered as well as hotel stays when she was in the area. The California Attorney General asked that an investigation be launched into the matter to see if publicly donated money was used to fund her coming to the school.
“Jerry Brown and friends, come on. This is California,” Palin retorted. “Do you not have anything else to do?” She said, almost taunting the Attorney General to pursue the matter further.
It will be interesting to see how the entire ordeal turns out. The two of them have had a tough time bickering with one another, but if the Attorney General finds out that the cash-strapped school was taken advantage of, the story could continue to gain momentum.
