That’s what MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow reported last night, after digging up documents that Bristol Palin has filed paperwork for a new “lobbying, public relations, and political consulting services” company, BSMP LLC. Her full name is Bristol Sharon Marie Palin.

According to Palin’s lawyer, “The code for BSMP, LLC pertains to several areas but includes public relations. Bristol Palin provides public relations services and is currently an ambassador for the Candie’s Foundation.”

The Candie’s Foundation is a pro-abstinence organization. As Maddow noted, “Bristol Palin has essentially set herself up to be paid as an incorporated entity as opposed to being paid as an individual and that’s sort of a common choice people make when they have money coming in from various sources like this.”
