Bristol Palin: Bristol Palin Pictures, Images, & News

Bristol Palin is in the news today, according to Reuters, over the fact that she earned $262,500 for advocacy work for abstinence and against teen pregnancy in 2009, according to the head of a nonprofit group that paid her said on Wednesday.

“Bristol did a tremendous amount of work for us — many, many days and weeks,” said Neil Cole, founder of the nonprofit Candie’s Foundation.

The daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin became a single mother at age 18 and last year her profile rose when she was a fan favorite on ABC show “Dancing with the Stars.”

She was already famous, in part for being pregnant during Sarah Palin’s 2008 campaign as the Republican vice presidential candidate, and for her on-and-off relationship with the father of her child, Levi Johnston.
