Any evidence taking money for a speaking gig means anything at all? Just because you get paid, doesn’t mean you have to sleep with them — which is a mistaken assumption of far too many progressives who flock here. Do 100% of you work at a nonprofit? Google Inc. also hired Jane’s Addiction for a concert, too, because it was simply “cool” or added prestige to an event. The worst possible crime? A display of ostentatious wealth. The least? He’s going to speak his mine because he’s paid anyway.
