Giuliani needs whose money?

$9.2 million is a lot of dough. Does the obvious smack anyone else in the face?

Rudy Giuliani’s speaking fees.

The price tag for civil leadership is just too high. Million dollar, maybe even billion dollar campaigns spell “The End” for leadership that may have originated in the middle class.

Now, don’t get me wrong, Rudy can charge whatever he wants for his speaking engagements. But why do organizations want to pay that much just to hear someone speak?

The answer to “the obvious” question is simple: it’s just another way of funneling money to a politician.

Money, money, money…

I wonder what a $200,000 speech sounds like…
