Palin earned est'd $12 million since resigning

According to an estimate by ABC News, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has
personally earned at least $12 million since she abandoned her executive
post in July 2009. The ABC estimate was compiled using public records and
published news reports. Because the former governor does not publicize her
earnings, and information about two large sources of revenue (the
multi-year deal with Fox News Channel and a second book deal with
HarperCollins) are still under wraps, ABC is careful to note its estimate
is likely much lower than the real total. Read much, much more, here. It
seems strangely fitting that the main character in a real-life,
21st-century version of Horatio Alger's "Ragged Dick" would start out
earning $125,000 a year in public service.
