It's considerably more than that.  Including her travel (and other) expenses her fee is closer to $250k

So? High speaking fees for public persons isn't anything unusual.

The larger, non-partisan concern is the use of these oratory jackpots as a post-public service quid pro quo for assistance rendered while in office or influence exerted while out of office. Same issue I have with regulatory agents leaving the public sector and getting mad cash working for private-sector companies they used to oversee.

More power to her.  Wish I got paid that much for speaking.

As long as there are people there will be bribery, corruption and worse. Get used to it.
