Hillary Clinton supporter Julian Castro’s representative asked a public college to provide first-class travel for the Democrat to give a speech.

Castro, the Obama administration’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development who flirted with Clinton running-mate speculation, was mayor of San Antonio when he mopped up some speaking fees with the help of his representatives at the William Morris Agency.

NTK Network obtained an email (page 29) from January 2014. Castro’s rep at William Morris sent the message to Ohio State University, where Castro pocketed $15,000 for a speech and another $2,000 for his plane ticket.

“It is tough to ask a guy to travel coach, can you handle a first class ticket?” Castro’s agent said to the taxpayer-funded college.
