The mystery is over. She got a mil and a quarter. Read it and weep:
Sarah Palin reports she received $1.25 million as a retainer for her upcoming book "Going Rogue." The former Alaska governor says in her financial disclosure statement released Tuesday that she received the money from publisher HarperCollins. Palin, the former GOP vice presidential candidate, resigned in July. She kept a fairly low profile as she worked with her book's ghostwriter.So how much did the ghostwriter get? A substantial fee or, as Levi said to Bristol, "Can I give you a little tip?" (Ooooh, that's bad.)
Palin is regarded as a possible 2012 contender for the presidency. Past candidates, notably Barack Obama, have been helped by writing best-selling books, invaluable platforms for politicians to tell their story.Yeah, except Barack actually wrote his books. No ghosts needed.
So the couldn't-hack-it-so-she-quit ex-Governor of Alaska walks away with a cool six figure deal, huh?
