speeches disguised as campaign events

Grover Norquist Has a Suggestion for President Obama Since He Insists on Giving His Jobs Speech (aka “Campaign Event”) at the U.S. Capitol

“People who use public facilities for private purposes pay an appropriate rental fee so that taxpayers are not subsidizing a private event. The Library of Congress and the Smithsonian museums regularly rent out space for private functions. Perhaps they could suggest to the President and his campaign a reasonable price for use of the U.S. Capitol and the House chamber as a backdrop for his upcoming political rally.” [ATR]
