The New Executive Economy

Governors, presidents, and kings are typically given a place to live during their term of office. And in nearly every case, it’s more than just a place to live: It’s usually a really nice place to live, a mansion or palace, and maybe a yacht, too. Inside sources have disclosed that in recent months, some governors, in an effort to raise much needed funds, have, very discreetly, decided to make their mansions available for formal parties and receptions to a very select clientele, as well as to overnight guests.
Ryan Rocifero reports:

This phenomenon first came to my attention when I found that Justin Bieber was staying at the governor’s mansion in California. Can you imagine anyone actually inviting Justin Bieber to spend the night? So I knew that something strange was going on. After ruling out hypnosis and sorcery, I finally discovered that, with the right connections, one could stay in the governor’s mansion for a fairly substantial ‘donation’. Well, that was just the beginning: I found that this sort of thing is fairly common, even including the King of Spain.
