Bristol Palin's Teen Pregnancy Non-Profit Paid Her Seven Times More Than It Donated

What's the point of being a non-profit spokesperson if you're not actually helping anyone? Oh, right, to rake in exorbitant amounts of dough. At least that's what happened in 2009 with Bristol Palin, who was compensated an astonishing seven times more than her non-profit, Candie's Foundation, donated to teen pregnancy prevention. ThinkProgress has the news:

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. Read more
