Pay to play: Rove, Gibbs coming to State Bar conference

Eric Heisig posted at Court Gestures in the Wisconsin Law Journal
"The State Bar is spending $51,000 to bring Robert Gibbs and Karl Rove to its 2014 Annual Meeting & Conference next month.

"... But Bar President Patrick Fiedler was quick to point out that the fee to bring the Barack Obama and George W. Bush advisors won’t come from dues.

"Instead, he said it’s coming from those who register to go to the conference – which is June 26 and June 27 at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva – as well as sponsorships and exhibitor fees."
