HUGE Payday for

 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.

That is f_cking disgusting.
Like they would offer that to some inner city black girl who was working two jobs to feed her baby.
That's the bottom line on what the Tea Party stands for: making the rich richer, even if it's at the expense of everyone else.

People, Jerry Lewis gets paid a lot of money by the Muscular Dystrophy foundation to raise money for them.

This is business, folks, and it's the way things are done.

Now all of you, SHUT THE F**K UP AND STOP THE HATE.

So would you rather she have been more ghetto and popped out a few more kids that taxpayers would be supporting?

And TMZ?
More proof that we know you hate the Palins. Otherwise you would have used a better picture of her.

What a crock of crap! No way should she be paid at all! This is obviously some republican organization giving her kickbacks because of her mom! It's ridiculous of all the corruption that is going on! Even CEOs of non-profit organizations shouldn't be making $262,000 per year! This country needs an enema!

At least she is working to support her child and not living off my tax dollars. She made a mistake but she isn't asking you to pay for her mistake.

I am sure her son when he is older will be proud to know his mom campaigned and earned big bucks for telling others not to have a child like him. That will really make him fun as a teenager himself. What a joke! This young woman has made money for nothing when other young mom's are struggling..thanks to our crazy society.

Only in America can a teenage girl become rich by preaching to other teenage girls to do exactly what she did NOT do. Opening her legs for Bristol was a career move. She gets paids several dozen thousand of dollars for speaking of teenage pregnancy.

With her tree trunk thighs and pig body, she should really stay away from anything with the word 'CANDY' in it.

Being an advocate for teenage pregnancy prevention is admirable, but accepting money (and especially that much) is disgraceful.

If Britol and her family really wanted to set a good example for others in Bristol's situation, she would have enrolled in college immediately, skipped Dancing with the Stars, and done VOLUNTEER work on the side.

Although teens should be held accountable for their actions, at the same time, teens are ill equipped to care for children without the help of extended families. I am still baffled as to why the Palin family took pride in Bristol trying to do everything on her own (initially) rather than promoting that teens need the support of their families in order to obtain an education that will enable them to independently care for their children after they graduate.

Most teens in Bristol's situation obviously can't use their parent's fame to support themselves and their children.
