Unmarried teen pregnancy really pays!

From ThinkProgress:
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. ...

Thus, the nonprofit paid Bristol over seven times what it paid to teen pregnancy prevention groups.

A quarter of a million dollars for getting knocked up in high school? Who says unmarried teen pregnancy doesn't pay?

And this doesn't include all her other activities, including Dancing with the Stars and her own PAC. Really, why go to college when you can get all this from getting pregnant in high school?

Of course, you also have to be part of the Palin clan. It's incredible, isn't it? That phrase, the "Wasilla hillbillies," seems more appropriate all the time.
