It's a well-established fact that Hillary Clinton isn't a cheap date. She often gets $200,000 or more per public speech and earlier this year she famously remarked that she and her husband were, thanks to legal bills, "dead broke" when they left the White House in 2001:
Report: $50K travel tab for Clintons at Steak Fry
Retiring Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin’s last Steak Fry reportedly paid $50,000 to bring Bill and Hillary Clinton to the balloon field in Indianola where the fundraiser was held this year.
The cost was buried in a 222-page financial disclosure filing with the Federal Election Commission. It was first reported by Bloomberg Politics.
The event was intended to be an Iowa Democratic Party fundraiser, meaning the proceeds go to help candidates such as Senate hopeful Bruce Braley, who is looking to succeed Harkin, and Staci Appel, who could be the first woman elected to Congress from Iowa.
Harkin began asking for Hillary Clinton to attend his 37th and final Steak Fry last April.
Clinton, a likely 2016 presidential candidate, has come under fire for her paid speaking fees in the past 18 months, which typically include a proviso about travel.
The Harkin event was Clinton’s first political event of the fall midterm season.
A Clinton spokesman didn’t respond to an email late Tuesday.
