Bristling Over Bristol

Today in head-desk news, NY Daily News and a variety of sources report that The Candie’s Foundation, a nonprofit that fights teen pregnancy by promoting abstinence, paid Bristol Palin $262,500 for her work as their spokesperson in 2009. ThinkProgress did the math and found that Bristol’s salary was about seven times what the foundation spent on actually preventing teen pregnancy: 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 Wow, being a walking incarnation of Learn From My Fail sure must have a high overhead!
