MILWAUKEE, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate said he is troubled by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's decision not to allow press into an upcoming event.
Tate criticized the fact that members of the press will not be allowed inside the Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park in Milwaukee when Palin speaks at Friday evening's Wisconsin Right to Life event, CNN said.
"You know, for someone who claims to be a rogue and isn't afraid of what other people think it really is sort of hypocritical to not let the media, the press cover your event," Tate said.
In addition to keeping out the press, individuals attending Friday's event will not be allowed to carry any recording devices, including cell phones and cameras.
CNN said while Wisconsin Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus applauded the former Republican vice presidential candidate's visit to his state, he clarified his party was not involved in the event rules.
