Sarah Palin has reportedly raked in more than $12 million since resigning as governor of Alaska in July 2009, according to ABC News.
The ex-Alaska governor collected a $1.25 million paycheck for her memoir Going Rogue: An American Life, boasts an astounding $100,000 speaking fee, and will reap $1 million for each episode she shoots of her upcoming reality television show, Sarah Palin's Alaska.
More on how Palin fattened her wallet:
ABC News reports that Palin's $12 million cash haul translates into an income of "at least 100 times her old salary." (Palin's salary as governor of Alaska was $125,000.)
ABC's Matthew Mosk writes:
The actual number is probably much higher, but is hard to quantify because Palin does not publicize her earnings, and has managed to keep a lid on reliable figures for her earnings from a multi-year contract with Fox News and a second book deal with HarperCollins.
