Levi Johnston: Palin resigned to cash in on fame
AP – Levi Johnston speaks during a news conference in Anchorage, Alaska, on Thursday,
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A spokeswoman for Gov. Sarah Palin is scoffing at comments by Bristol Palin's former fiance, who says he thinks Palin resigned to cash in on her fame.
"It is interesting to learn Levi is working on a piece of fiction while honing his acting skills," Palin family spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
Levi Johnston, 19, whose wedding to Bristol Palin was called off earlier this year, said Thursday he lived with the Palin family from early December to the second week in January. He claimed he heard the governor several times say how nice it would be to take advantage of the lucrative deals that were being offered, including a reality show and a book.
"She had talked about how nice it would be to take some of this money people had been offering us and you know just run with it, say 'forget everything else,'" he said.
He said he thinks book deals were really what appealed to Palin.
"I think the big deal was the book. That was millions of dollars," said Johnston, who has had a strained relationship with the family but now says things have improved.
Compensation details of Palin's book projects haven't been disclosed. The former GOP vice presidential candidate has said she is facing more than $500,000 in legal fees.
Johnston made his comments at a news conference Thursday at the office of his attorney, Rex Butler.
Johnston came forward, Butler said, because Alaskans want to know why Palin has decided to resign, effective the end of the month.
Johnston is pursuing his own book deal and movie deal while working as a carpenter.
Asked if he would vote for her if she ran for president, Johnston said: "I think she's a great lady, but after seeing what she did now, you know, leaving Alaska, I would have to say,'no.' Obviously she's stressed out as governor. I mean moving up to the vice president or president is huge. I just don't think anymore that she's cut out for the job."
I have to agree with Levi...She can't handle being governor...how does she plan on handling the presidency.-/....By the way, do you all remember when I said he and Bristol would never make it to the alter because it was all a hoax while her mommy was running for VP.;-)

Let us hope she isn't resigning to cash in on fame and run for president. A part of me is inclined to believe that she has had enough of the media bashing her and her family.
She does have positive traits as a strong woman, a mother of 5, and let us not persecute her because we don't share the same political views as she does. I did not and will never vote for her but that's where it stops for me. NO ONE IS PERFECT--LOOK IN THE MIRROR you have your own flaws. P.S. I thought Letterman was distasteful.
Here check this article out to see a different side of her...AND YOU THOUGHT SHE DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER INTERESTS ASIDE FROM SHOOTING MOOSE!!!
