Bristol Palinís Nonprofit Paid Her Seven Times What It Spent On Actual Teen Pregnancy Prevention

In 2009, Sarah Palinís daughter Bristol joined a teen pregnancy prevention nonprofit called the Candieís Foundation. Today, the Associated Press reported that the Candieís 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. View a screenshot of Bristolís exorbitant salary below:

All this 'lobbying' being done by Bristol - who here is shocked that this is more about giving Bristol a big pay-day then it is to actually keep teens from being pregnant.

1. Typical RW crap. Talk a big show but actually do little.
And Bristol learned well from her mother about grifting.

3. I think you're missing the point. Keeping Bristol busy with a job IS pregnancy prevention.

10. Page 25 of the tax return
shows Neil Cole being paid $1,000,000 in compensation from the organization.
Two others received $400,000 each.
Plus Palin's 262,500.

Grifters.

Fleecing right-wing morons is a lucrative enterprise!

14. Aren't they encouraging teens to emulate Bristol?
She has a baby out of wedlock, gets to be on TV, earn big bucks, and be held up as an example to others.

Shouldn't her mother condemn her like she would any other girl? I would think Sarah would be sewing the scarlet letters on her daughter's clothes herself!
