Non-profit paid Bristol Palin $262,500 Actual Programs to prevent teen pregnancy $35,000
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 12:13 AM by RamboLiberal
In 2009, Sarah Palins daughter Bristol joined a teen pregnancy prevention nonprofit called the Candies Foundation. Today, the Associated Press reported that the Candies Foundation released its 2009 tax information, revealing that Bristol was paid a salary of $262,500.

But a closer examination of the tax form by ThinkProgress shows that the group disbursed only $35,000 in grants to actual teen pregnancy health and counseling clinics: $25,000 to the Mt. Sinai Adolescent Health Center and $10,000 to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy.

5. An Obvious Scam to Allow Someone to Make Tax-Deductable Donations to Sarah Palin
Smells like tax fraud AND a violation of what is left of our election laws.

7. Looks very much like a political contribution masked as a
charitable one.
