Skip to comments.Levi Johnston quits oil field job (Libs cost him his job!)
Posted on 01/06/2009 5:42:23 AM PST by Virginia Ridgerunner
Levi Johnston, the boyfriend of Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol, has quit his North Slope oil field job over questions about his eligibility to work in an electrical apprenticeship program, Johnston's father said Monday.
Johnston, 18, began working this fall in the Milne Point oil field with ASRC Energy Services Inc., a major Slope contractor.
In a Sunday newspaper column, Anchorage radio talk show host Dan Fagan questioned how Johnston could take part in ASRC's apprenticeship program without a high school diploma.
Fagan said he understood federal regulations require all members of apprenticeship programs to have a diploma. He also questioned whether the governor might have had a hand in getting Johnston into the program.
Palin adamantly denied that Monday.
Johnston's father, Keith Johnston, said the governor had nothing to do with getting Levi the Slope job. Keith Johnston said his own position as an ASRC construction engineer accounts for any help his son received in landing work.

1) Lib prying and pressure cost this boy his apprenticeship.
2) Levi's dad helped get his apprenticeship, not Governor Palin or Todd.
Hey rules are rules. Get your diploma and come back! That should have been the first thing his Dad told him IMO.
So he could work there because of his qualifications. The irony and hypocracy are mind boggeling.
For those who thing we should play nice with the libs remember this. They will seek to destroy your family if you oppose them.
Levi’s liberal error was that he was hard working and supporting his family and not on welfare with a wife and baby.
The media is going after the whole family hoping Sarah will decide against public life and a run for higher office. The Palin’s are tight enough that they’ve probably had many family meetings to discuss this very subject. These are Mafia techniques. Threatening family members (with their lives) to get public officials to work with them.
One thing to remember, though, when dealing with libs,
any deference to “rules” is simply lip service and only adhered to when the rules favor their desired outcome.
Conservatives, on the other hand, will accept unfavorable results as long as the previously agreed upon rules are followed fairly.
And I’ll bet the libs are doing their happy dance right now that he lost his job. They will do anything to screw a conservative.
Most libs (women) are actually angrier that Bristol didn’t abort.
Get your diploma and come back!
Complete your DEATH EATER communist indoctrination at you local Marxist indoctrination camp ( misnamed “public” school) and then come back.
There! Fixed it for you.
Years ago such jobs did not require high school diplomas. Not all kids are cut out for school. We are making a serious mistake the way we view education in this country. I had a friend in High School-Dale- hated school. It was truly torture for him. He only stayed there because of his Mom; she wanted him to finish so much. As soon as he got out, he opened a business fixing lawnmowers and other small engines. This was in CT. He saved his money and bought property. The boy has more money-real wealth-than any of us who went the college.
Yeah, but it’s so much easier to fault something other than the rules. And libs are good target.
and say shes not here to please the media and coldnt care less what they think then she knows she and her family better tow the line or it will be know far and wide.
If the rules are you have to have a highschool degree to qualify then he has to have a degree, period....not that hard.
Again, remember that libs only reference rules when they serve their own ends. And in this case, it is to destroy Sarah Palin’s family.
Sorry! After reading the content of your post, I glanced at your name. My first impression was, “BRAIN DAMAGED?”
It doesn’t matter. He doesn’t qualify according to the program rules. End of matter
There seems to be more to this than what this article lays out. One guy writes an op ed, and the boy quits his apprenticeship? Something is missing.
Hmm I read the Bristol and Levi got $300,000 for the baby photos. Not going on welfare soon
