Palin to Moonbeam: "Do you not have anything else to do?"

Jerry Brown was the target of a well-deserved barb from Sarah Palin during her speech at yesterday's fundraiser gala at CSU Stanislaus.
Sarah Palin criticized California Attorney General Jerry Brown Friday over his investigation into her speaking arrangement at a gala dinner at a cash-strapped California university.

The 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate's speech at the 50th anniversary celebration at California State University, Stanislaus has generated intense intrigue and scrutiny since the nonprofit foundation holding the event first announced her visit in March.

The visit set off a pitched legal feud. Brown launched an investigation into the finances of the university's foundation arm amid allegations that the nonprofit violated public disclosure laws.

"Jerry Brown and friends, come on this is California," she said. "Do you not have anything else to do?"
The event raised more than $200,000 for the CSU Stanislaus Foundation.  (Photo credit Debbie Noda, Modesto Bee / June 26, 2010)
