HILLARY CLINTON's DIVA DEMANDS
You think rock stars are out of control? Wait'lll you get a load of HILLARY CLINTON's uber-diva demands!
While some entertainers demand in their contractual riders only green M&Ms or freshly picked mango juice ONLY, the former Sec-O-State has a full list of demands all her own. She not only asked for $275,000 to speak at the University of Buffalo, her nine-page contract is filled with the kinds of demands that are pure fodder for late night comedians.
According to docs obtained by the Washington Post, Hillary's contract demands: "…the university provide "a presidential glass panel teleprompter and a qualified operator," and that Team Clinton hase "final approval" of her introducer and moderator of any Q and A sessions.
"The sets, backdrops, banners, scenery, logos, settings, etc," would also have to be given the thumb's up by Hillary's office. The topic and length of the of Clinton's address would be at her "sole discretion." The contract required the university to reserve 20 seats in a "priority seating area" for Clinton's staff and guests, and that the university pay for any additional security requested by the U.S. Secret Service.
WaPo also noted that, according to the contract, Clinton required that the university pay a fee of $1,000 to have a stenographer transcribe Clinton's speech, but the transcript would "solely for (her)records," and that the university was not permitted to tape the speech."
Reportedly, she has also donated ALL of her speaking fees to charity. The charity being the Clinton Foundation, natch.
So, not only is the speaking fee a tax-deduction for Hillary, she's still able to keep the money close. Just in case she needs to tap into the old Clinton war chest to to jump start her probable 2016 Presidential run.
Of course, once it's official - there'll be the official Presidential Campaign Fund and PACS and Super-Pacs for that sort of thing without dipping into the Foundation's assets.
