http://www.examiner.com/x-30572-Hol...h-Palin-earns-12-million-since-leaving-office Must be nice to be Sarah Palin. Since leaving her political office, the former Alaska Governor has continually raked in the big bucks. Mrs. Palin has reportedly earned at least $12 million since leaving the office in July (09). According to ABC news, the big payday is due to numerous TV appearances, book deals and speaking engagements pulling in five to six figures each. Just how did the network come up with the number? Based on news accounts and book sales the $12 million figure was garnered, however the number is probably much higher. Palin will reportedly receive $7 million for her book Going Rogue and $2 million from the upcoming TV series, Sarah Palins Alaska, on The Learning Channel. Wow! Congrats.
