Student leaders including the student body president at the University of Las Vegas are calling on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to return the reported $225,000 speaking fee she's set to receive for an upcoming speech at the school.
UNLV student body president Elias Benjelloun and Daniel Waqar, the student government's public relations director, told Nevada political reporter John Ralston that the speaking fee is "a bit outrageous."
"We'd like Secretary Clinton, respectfully, to gracefully return the money to the university or the foundation," Waqar told Ralston on Thursday.
The university says the fee is covered through private sponsorships and a Clinton aide tells CNN that the money will go to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
But, as you might expect, the Republican party is seizing on this latest development to paint the potential 2016 candidate as out of touch.

(CNN) – If you want to teach at a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, regardless of your religion, you must be willing to sign a detailed morality clause that critics say focuses on "pelvic issues."
The revised contracts forbid teachers from - among other things - living together or having sex outside of marriage, using in-vitro fertilization, a gay "lifestyle," or publicly supporting any of those things.
The system's 2,200 current teachers must sign the agreement to stay on the job.
"It is an embarrassment and a scandal, and will drive even more Catholics away from an institution so out of touch with its times," said Robert Hague, a high school English teacher for 50 years.
He's leaving his job rather than sign because he's opposed to "the language, the intent, and the tone of this contract," he says.
The revised morality clause goes beyond more general standard language requiring teachers - Catholic or not - to adhere to Catholic doctrine.

Michelle Obama slams the GOP.
It's rare that the first lady gets publicly involved in a political fight. But she has some major beef with House Republicans who want to enable schools to opt out of the nutrition standards that the first lady fought for.
"The last thing we can afford to do right now is play politics with our kids' health," she said. "Now is not the time to roll back everything that we have worked for. Our kids deserve so much better than that."

With the school year coming to a close, there's a growing concern about the state of America's education system.
Why Common Core tests are bad
Much of it centered around the nationwide standard known as the "Common Core" - a way to evaluate students, schools and teachers.
It started under the Bush administration, but now conservatives are one of its biggest opponents.
But one woman is making it part of her life's work to support the curriculum. In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Melinda Gates explains why she backs Common Core.
