GMU cancels Moore as campus speaker - The Washington Times

GMU cancels Moore as campus speaker : "George Mason University yesterday rescinded its invitation to filmmaker Michael Moore after state lawmakers balked at the pending deal, which could have cost the Virginia school as much as $35,000.
The 'Evening with Michael Moore' event had been in the works for Oct. 28. As of 3 p.m. yesterday, university officials and Mr. Moore still were negotiating the details of a deal, including his speaking fee and whether taxpayer dollars would pay for the event.
But after dozens of conservatives sent critical letters and e-mails to university President Alan Merten, university officials said late yesterday the school had rescinded its offer. "
