Abstinence foundation paid Bristol Palin $262K, spent little on prevention programs
Source: Raw Story

Tax documents reveal that an anti-teen pregnancy foundation paid Bristol Palin seven times what it spent on actual teen pregnancy prevention programs.

Bristol Palin, the 20-year-old daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was appointed as a teen ambassador for the Candie's Foundation in 2009. Actresses Jenny McCarthy and Hayden Panettiere have also served as ambassadors for the foundation.

The "Sarah Palin watchdog" website Palingates first reported that Bristol Palin received at least $262,500 from the Candie's Foundation in 2009.

Jezebel reported that the foundation paid $25,000 to the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center and $10,000 to the National Campaign To Prevent Teen Pregnancy in 2009, a little over a tenth of what they gave to Palin.

2. I wonder what kind of tax breaks
Candie's Foundation got. I'd hate to see one red cent of my tax money going to Bristol Palin.
