School says it was OK to pay Moore his fee for Bush-bashing speech
The University of Cincinnati says there was nothing improper about paying filmmaker Michael Moore his fee of nearly eight-thousand dollars for his Bush-bashing speech on campus just before the November election.
The Federal Elections Commission had inquired about it. The school said it told the FEC that no election laws were broken because Moore was not officially connected to the Kerry campaign. University spokesman Greg Hand says a coalition of seven campus groups ranging from the student NAACP chapter to the Arts and Culture Club paid Moore from activity fees collected when students register. He said no tax money was used. Moore's film "Fahrenheit 9-11" harshly criticizes the Bush administration's handling of the war in Iraq. And Moore was active against Bush, visiting 66 cities last year in a Slacker Uprising Tour where he attempted to muster voters against the president.
