Bristol Palin to Campaign Against Teen Pregnancy

If life throws you a curveball, become a spokesperson. Miss California Carrie Prejean wound up advocating in favor of  marriage after her dustup over the gay marriage issue with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton. 

And now, unwed mother Bristol Palin has landed a similar role. According to The Associated Press,  the 18-year-old daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has been appointed as a Teen Ambassador for The Candie's Foundation.  Bristol will participate in a town hall meeting Wednesday in New York.

She said in a statement that she wants to be a living example of the consequences of teen pregnancy. And, yes, she'll be paid. No word yet, though, on how much.
