Posted on 09/09/2016 7:55:02 AM PDT by rktman
College Progressives at Penn State University were not happy with the steep entry price to a Conversation with Chelsea event featuring former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton, the least successful member of the Clinton political dynasty.
The event, which took place Wednesday in State College, Pa., charged $500 just to get in the door, and $1,000 for a photo with Chelsea. For $2,700, attendees would be granted access to a special reception with the guest of honor.
College Progressives at Penn State really wanted to be a part of the so-called conversation, but quite rightly noted that $500 was a hefty price that would exclude many college students from attending.
Although we certainly support Chelseas right to campaign on her mothers behalf, we do not agree with Mrs. Clinton choosing to make this conversation available exclusively to individuals who can afford or are willing to pay at least $500, said Ethan Paul, vice president of College Progressives of Penn State. It is particularly deplorable that a $2,700 donationthe legal limitgets a personal conversation with Mrs. Clinton.
Others agreed. College Progressive Secretary Kathryn Van Develde said putting such an expensive price on involvement in elections really hurts college students who already feel there is no point to politics.

So. is prostitution legal there?
Does it say how many attended?
$500 for a pic? She’s not that hot!
Didn't they learn anything from the last go-round?
I totally agree!
They’ll eventually have to “paper” the event and all these stupid kids will get in for free. They should have some patience.
Hey, it’s expensive to replace all those broken lenses after photographing Chelsea.
Everybody’s for sale in the Clinton family.
No, it was a grand for a photo op. Keeps the roaches out of the kitchen.
I don’t get. Even $2,700 isn’t enough to buy any type of influence from the Clintons. Last I saw the Clintons price tag starts at $100,000.
Maybe that explains why Crooked’s rallies have low attendance. The true believers can’t afford the entrance fee.
Talking horses don’t come cheap.
No, $500 just to attend. The pic is an extra $1,000, and for the privilege of talking to Web's kid it's $2,700.
Don’t they know that to be able to see Webb Hubbell’s kid they have to pay up?
She’s part of the Clinton Crime Family (even if she is Webb Hubbell’s kid)
Any mention on what the money was FOR?
Most normal people would laugh as the Clinton Crime Syndicate’s shamelessly tries to hold up Bernie’s supporters after threatening Bernie! But we are talking about the most gullible, naive generation ever to survive without custodial care in this country’s history. We have no chance to thrive when the future is in such needy, myopic hands.
$500 to get in the door, $1000 for a pic with, $2700 to talk to her.
I don't think they thought this through...
