For example, International Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights got tens of thousands of dollars each year by having a few members become students (continuing ed one or two course grad students) who then ran for student government. They got elected. (Easy to do when student electorial turnouts are often less than 2%) and they then used their positions in student government to legally abscond student union fees by hiring themselves and their activist buddies as consultants. The CSU activist center got $70,000!!!
God bless the LGF comments section. I think this is 100% true. Leftist organizations have been skimming off the public trough for years by playing the state college beaurocracy (how do you think Ralph Nader got so rich?). Yet another example of the politicization of the university system.
