In 2009, Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol joined a teen pregnancy prevention nonprofit called the Candie’s Foundation. Today, the Associated Press reported that the Candie’s 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.

Public Spokesperson Bristol Palin Paid 7 Times More Than Charity Actually Donated
Bristol Palin's only claim to fame is for being Sarah Palin's daughter and getting pregnant out of wedlock. But she apparently has inherited mamma bear Palin's penchant for making boatloads of cash without much effort as a recent report shows was paid 7 times more than the non-profit teen pregnancy group she worked for actually dispersed.
