Sarah Palin is traveling to India next month to rub elbows with Indian politicians and Bollywood stars.
The former Alaska governor is scheduled to speak at the India Today Conclave in New Delhi on March 19.
Palin aide Rebecca Mansour confirmed the details by tweeting a link to the organization’s website, writing only “Gov. Palin will be traveling to India next month.”
It’s unknown if Palin is getting paid for the appearance, but the $1,850 price tag to attend the two-day event makes it seem likely that she got her quote – reportedly $100,000 per appearance.
The conference’s choice of Palin is an odd one. She will be the only American politician attending the conference, which is stacked with Indian and Pakistani officials, business leaders, public figures and entertainers.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is kicking off the conference Friday morning with the keynote. Palin’s speech comes Saturday night and brings the conference to a close.
Great! Exactly who we need representing us over in Asia? doi!
