Chelsea Clinton Follows Parentsí Lead as a Paid Speaker [$75,000 Per Speech]
New York Times ^ | 07/09/2014 | By AMY CHOZICK

There is a new Clinton paid to deliver speeches — Chelsea, the former first daughter — and she is commanding as much as $75,000 per appearance.

Aides stressed that while Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton often address trade groups and Wall Street bankers, Ms. Clinton, now 34, focuses on organizations whose goals are in line with the work of the family’s philanthropic organization, the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Organizers said her star power helped sell tickets and raise money.

And unlike her parents’ talks, Ms. Clinton’s speeches “are on behalf of the Clinton Foundation, and 100 percent of the fees are remitted directly to the foundation,” said her spokesman, Kamyl Bazbaz, adding that “the majority of Chelsea’s speeches are unpaid.” The Harry Walker Agency, the firm that represents her parents’ engagements, handles Ms. Clinton’s talks on behalf of the family foundation.

The family speechmaking business is a lucrative one and has generated more than $100 million for her parents over the past decade as they hopscotched the globe. Their fees range from $200,000 to $700,000 per appearance, and Mr. Clinton alone earned $17 million last year giving speeches.

Ms. Clinton has avoided the controversies that have lately accompanied her mother’s speeches, particularly at public universities. Mrs. Clinton, the former secretary of state and a potential presidential candidate, also donates her university fees to the family foundation, but critics have said that as taxpayer-supported institutions, the schools should put that money to better use.

They're paying protection money to the Clinton Crime Family.

Once Hillary is defeated in the primaries, Chelsea's speaking fees will plummet precipitously.

Chelsea’s learning how to be a grifter on the rubber chicken circuit real early.

If a sack of horse manure appeared on TV, been the subject of several journalists friendly exposes in high profile newspapers and becomes tabloid fodder, then that sack of manure would command a sizable appearance fee.

...Ms. Clinton’s speeches “are on behalf of the Clinton Foundation, and 100 percent of the fees are remitted directly to the foundation,”
Which are then laundered into offshore accounts where they help fund the family's opulent lifestyle.

Allegedly.

Mrs. Clinton, the former secretary of state...

Why is Hillary "Mrs. Clinton," but Chelsea is only "Ms. Clinton?"

They're both married, right?

Is this sexism? Ageism?

why would anyone care what a 34 year old woman who’s only notable accomplishment thus far in life was being born into the family of a future president?

yeah, but just about the time the “Leave Chelsea alone while she grows up” hallpass expired, she got knocked up and conveniently moves into the “Don’t be mean to the new mommy” category.

Speaking to the drones. Amazing how the left can use these pathological liars to talk to the dumbed down masses.

Wouldn't be surprised if the Clinton's started charging fees to hear the baby crying.
