Sarah Palin Is Definitely Into The Money
Posted by Media Outrage on April 14, 2010
Sarah Palin might look and sound like a ditzy broad but her pockets tell a different story. It seems as though she’s really into the money a bit heavier than you might think…
Resigning as governor of Alaska last year to join the private sector has worked out splendidly – and lucratively – for Sarah Palin.
The 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate has earned at least $12 million, and probably more than that, since leaving office at end of July, according to an estimate by ABC News.
That’s mostly thanks to TV and book deals and lots of speaking appearances worth five and six figures each. ABC says its estimate, based on public records and news accounts, is conservative – and that the actual number is “probably much higher.”
Palin, 46, was said to have received some $7 million for her book Going Rogue alone. She will also reportedly earn about $2 million from her upcoming Alaska reality-TV series, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, on The Learning Channel.
Mediaoutrage– No surprise there, most politicians with a name earn the majority of their doe from expensive speaking engagements and book deals. We just wish she’d wash the coloring out of her hair and return back to her natural color… BLONDE.
