Bristol Palin Hits the Lecture Circuit for Big Bucks

It apparently pays to be an unmarried teenaged mom and the daughter of a failed politician. Bristol Palin is hitting the lecture tour and groups will pay a pretty penny to be in her presence.

Palin family attorney Thomas Van Flein confirmed a report on RadarOnline that Bristol has signed up with Single Source Speakers. She would get anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000 per appearance. Van Flein said the exact fee would depend what group she's addressing and what she must to do prepare.

The 19-year-old Alaskan is listed on the group's Web site as available for conferences, fundraisers, special events and holidays, as well as women's, youth, abstinence and "pro-life" programs.

Van Flein said Bristol would be selective in the speeches she gives. In addition to her only seemingly area of expertise -- teen pregnancy -- she will also be available to discuss life on the campaign trail, being in the media spotlight (in which her mother thrust her and Bristol seems to relish), her parenting approach, and her general outlook on life.

Bristol is following in the lucrative footsteps of her mother, who bailed as governor of Alaska midway through her term and hit the lucrative lecture circuit. Of course, Sarah Palin demands far more money for an appearance than her daughter -- upwards of $100,000, according to reports.
