Son of Tripp

According to an MSNBC gossip columnist, the fevered auction among glossy celebrity rags for photos of Bristol Palin's newborn went from 100 to $300K after the child's less celebrated grandmother was charged with several drug offenses.
"The bidding started well before the baby was born, but once Levi’s mom was arrested — well, then you had a story," says one editor.
Depending on the distribution of proceeds, the payment could narrowly avoid violating Alaska's "Son of Sam Law," which aims to prevent criminal defendants from profiting on their transgressions.
