Dick Morris auctions tour of Fox News at Lake County GOP fundraiserby Dara Kam | March 19th, 2012
It’s not unusual for Florida politics to make national headlines, and a recent GOP fundraiser dinner featuring Dick Morris and a visit to Fox News has the spotlight on the Sunshine State once again, at least for one left-leaning media group.
The swaggering strategist raised $6,000 for Lake County Republicans earlier this month by auctioning off a guided tour of Fox News’s New York studio. Morris is a pundit for the news network.
Morris, Bill and Hillary Clinton‘s one-time friend and advisor who has since disavowed the former first couple, was the keynote speaker at the sold-out Lake County GOP’s Lincoln/Reagan dinner on March 9.
The Lake County Republican’s website touted Morris and the money he raised but has taken it down since the left-leaning Media Matters questioned Fox News’s ties to the political fundraiser.
“Keynote speaker Dick Morris auctions himself as personal tour guide for a visit to Fox News in New York and raises an additional $6,000 for the Lake County REC Campaign Season,” the website’s cached promo reads.
