Sarah Palin Earns $12 Million Since Resignation

Despite her claims that she was stepping aside because it was the 'right path for Alaska', it appears that there may have been a financial motivator behind Sarah Palin's resignation as governor:
The actual number is probably much higher, but is hard to quantify because Palin does not publicize her earnings. She reputedly got a $7 million deal for her first book, with the bulk of that money due after her resignation as governor, and will earn about $250,000 per episode, according to the web site The Daily Beast, for each of eight episodes of a reality show about Alaska for the The Learning Channel. She has managed to keep a lid on reliable figures for her earnings from a multi-year contract with Fox News and a second book deal with HarperCollins.

A Palin aide responding to questions from ABC News said the governor “is now a private citizen. As a result, her fees and earnings are private.”
Shooooot. If I were guaranteed over ten million dollars, I would step down from my job too.

Who am I kidding. If I were guaranteed $100,000, I'd quit. I've got really low standards. But don't tell my boss.
