Speaking Fees

-- by Dave Johnson

Speaking fees are one way people in the conservative movement -- even bloggers --make significant money. Many corporate trade associations pay significant fees to have people speak. Local organizations pay significant fees as well.

Apparently Republican Party groups around the country pay pretty well, too: Fred Barnes not on a team? Why did GOP pay him? - Joe Conason - Salon.com

Go here and here and here for some examples of who is on the circuit and how much they're getting paid.

$5,000 here, $10,000 there, after a while it adds up. And you don't want to bite the hand that feeds you $5K and $10K every now and then.
