TURLOCK, Calif. -- Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has criticized California Attorney General Jerry Brown over his investigation into her Friday speaking visit to a California university.
The 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate headlined the 50th anniversary gala at California State University, Stanislaus Friday night. She spoke before more than 360 donors, who paid $500 per ticket to attend the black-tie fundraiser in the school's cafeteria.
Palin's speech has generated intense intrigue and scrutiny since the nonprofit foundation holding the event first announced her visit in March.
