Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Freebeacon.com: “April Ryan No Longer Moderating Buttigieg Campaign Event”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

CNN political analyst April Ryan will no longer be moderating a campaign event on Saturday for Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, backing out after she learned the event would be a fundraiser.

Ryan, who serves as White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, was initially slated to moderate a "grassroots fundraiser event" in Washington, D.C, where tickets would cost as much as $500. But, she said in a Friday tweet, the campaign "was not clear that the venue would be a fundraiser."

Prior to the tweet, a Buttigieg campaign spokesperson confirmed to the Hill that Ryan would not be paid for her time moderating the campaign event. Last month, Ryan thanked Buttigieg for inviting her to be his guest at the Congressional Black Caucus dinner in Washington, D.C.
