Sarah Palin took the money and ran, Levi Johnston told the Today Show Monday, on the heels of the ex-vice presidential candidate’s relinquishing of her gubernatorial chair in Alaska.
Johnston, the teen father of Palin’s grandchild, said that he was not surprised by the move, adding how he had heard Palin was fielding a number of lucrative business propositions (including what he said was at least a $7 million offer for her memoirs), and often “talked about how nice it would be to take some of this money and run with it.”
Johnston, an aspiring model-actor, hinted that that Palin’s commitment to her gubernatorial post had diminished in the wake of the Republican party’s presidential loss last November. He told Today anchor Ann Curry: “I didn’t see the spark in her eyes about being governor.”
The handsome young Johnston left a parting shot to Palin: “After what she had done now, quit in Alaska… I really don’t think I would go for her if she ran for President.”
