Bristol Palin seeks Levi Johnstonís financial records
NY Post ^ | February 18, 2010 | AP

Posted on 02/19/2010 4:07:53 AM PST by Scanian

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Bristol Palin’s lawyer is seeking permission to subpoena media outlets such as Playgirl magazine and CNN to determine how much money Levi Johnston, the father of her child, has made to calculate an appropriate level of child support.

Attorney Thomas Van Flein filed a motion seeking permission to conduct out-of-state depositions and obtain financial records from the magazine, CNN, Entertainment Tonight, Vanity Fair, the National Enquirer, Star magazine and Insider.

It could take a judge weeks to decide on the request by Palin, the teenage daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate.

This has to be the first time in history that a single mom was not immediately granted any sort of financial help from a deadbeat dad.

LOL.

Bristol has to make up her mind whether it’s really wise to get into a cat fight with a skunk.

Levi started the cat fight, and could have profited from smearing the Palin’s.
Levi appears to have money for a manager, promoter, and flies around the country acting like a celebrity.
Certainly, Bristol and child should share in those revenues.

Yes, she deserves support for their son. Levi is a skunk, but,he needs to man up now.

I agree she should clean his clock now and put that money aside for that baby, before all of his money is blown. Lord knows he has rough waters ahead of him and future money will not be easy to come by once his celebrity status wears off!

Here’s the deal I’d offer: In exchange for sole custody, no child support payments- and not telling the world how tiny your junk is. Of course, anyone who saw any of the Playgirl photos knows that already.

None of my business or concern. And not relevant, but Bristol Palin is a very attractive young lady.

Levi is about to get an upclose lesson in how much family law attorneys make “settling” family issues. I personally got a $50K lesson years back, I think my ex actually paid more. My current wife of 20 years and I have a 1 page prenup that says we will hire a single mediator to help us work out any issues we can’t work out ourselves, should we decide to part, and that we will use a coin flip to decide any individual issue/thing which we can’t come to agreement on.

The Playgirl photos artfully hid his gonads, such as they are.

True, but you can still get a good idea of how tiny his junk is. Ask any woman who’s seen the photos and most will laugh.

Uh-oh, Levi Johnston is getting a little blowback for his juvenility and allowing himself to be used by the media.

Sometimes unintended consequences can be beautiful.

Levi has a guaranteed living as a leftist celebrity worm so long as Palin is a political figure.

It is too much to hope that Levi will keep that little boy in mind. Like all children he will grow up wanting to think his dad is a good guy, somebody he could love, somebody he could look up to.

But it’s too much to hope for.

Can’t the judge force Levi to produce his income tax records for last year? Or, if he can, is the Palin lawyer suggesting Levi might not have reported all the income he received?

That’s the true question. Johnston may lose some money, but he will benefit from even more publicity. There’s nothing that the would like better than keeping his name in the news.

“This has to be the first time in history that a single mom was not immediately granted any sort of financial help from a deadbeat dad.”

Actually this will be the first time ever that a deadbeat dad will be the sympathy figure in such a dispute. My guess is the NYT, WaPo, LAT, ABCNNBCBS, MSNBC et al will be slavering to give Levi a friendly interview. At the same time they will be savaging Bristol and of course the hated Sarah.

I hope Bristol makes a wiser choice the second time around and picks a fellow with his head on straight, to be stepfather to the child. It’s hard to see how Levi’s kid could view his biological dad as anything other than a jerk.

Levi wanted this all to be public, so it’s high time to shine the light on HIS dirt.
