Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has had a tough time on the speaker’s circuit this year. First he was heckled as a “criminal” and a “liar” at the University of Florida then Pomona College canceled his speech because “students would not attend.” Yet his talent agency, Greater Talent Network, is refusing to answer questions from reporters about Gonzales’s unpopularity:
Though one crisis the agency cannot handle is questions from reporters about Gonzales’ popularity – or lack thereof – on the speaking circuit. “No one here would answer questions from a reporter,” snapped one of the associates who answered the agency’s phone, before she hung up on us.)
The Washington Post notes that when Greater Talent pitches Gonzales as a speaker, it neglects to mention “that he’s raising money for his legal defense fund” with the exorbitant fees.
