 The former "Dancing With The Stars" contestant became an ambassador for The Candie’s Foundation in 2009 when she was 18 ... just a few months after giving birth to her son, Tripp ... and according to tax documents, the job PAID OFF.
 
The foundation’s website says Bristol "plays an important role by helping other teens understand the incredible challenges teen parents face, and encouraging them to wait until they are socially and financially independent to start their families.”

According to the website, Bristol is still working for the organization.

The only problem is this might promote others to wanna get pregnant at a young age. Because they might think "Well if she got this money for getting pregnant why can't I".

Sarah Palin comments about the Arizona shootings showed no class and that she failed to understand the criticism leveled at her blood libel comments. Seems like the Board of the Candies Foundation fails to understand the criticism leveled at them--you don't reward someone for giving the message: this won't work for you--but boy am I getting rich for being a teenage single mother. You don't hire one of the most hated people in America and say we hired her because so many people recognize her and we are going to reshape her image so that she becomes a role model for other teens. You simply cannot justify a stupid choice of using public donations to pay $265,000 to a 17 or 18 year old girl and make an excuse that this amount was fair because she worked for less than 20 days. You can't win public support for the candies foundation when you see reports that they had a $700,000 party for their Board Members but actually spent $35,000 helping prevent teen pregnancy. It seems like the entire village is missing their idiots--and that a fool and his money are easily parted once you meet the Palin Family of Grifters.

Oh, irony...

"Don't do what I did, but if you do, make sure you get one hell of a paycheck."

The only difference between her and a reformed porn star is that she didn't show her vag to everybody.

Poor Bristol--all she does is whine about how Levi is a deadbeat Dad and now about how Willow is a bad sister because Bristol wants to party and have Willow be Tripsy's nanny. She never paid the Massey Brothers for sharing the house in California with her and Tripsy plus babysitting Tripsy so Mama could go out and PARTY. Kyle got her the job and they were dating but when she got the chance to do a series without him and get more money for herself, she left the Masseys high and dry. I guess in Alaska that is called Going Rogue or what someone who is Mama Grizzly's cub or daughter of a bitch Pitbull in Lipstick would do. In the lower 48 it is like biting the hand of someone who feeds you and gives the message that you cannot be trusted.
