Levi Johnston quits oil field job, is a roustabout

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Levi Johnston, America's most famous ex-high school hockey player and brand new daddy, has quit his job in the Alaskan oil fields after questions surrounding his eligibility were risen.

The issue is that Johnston didn't have the required high school diploma to participate in the apprenticeship program.

Johnston's father and Gov. Sarah Palin deny the former VP candidate had any connection in the acquisition of the job.

So, for the time being, it looks like this Levi story is scandal-free.

But the Anchorage Daily News article does provide us with a deeper look into the life of the man responsible for some of the best all-time cutaway shots at a political convention.

"Levi is mechanically inclined and since age 8 has tagged along with his dad on house-building and wiring jobs, Keith Johnston said.

In early September, Levi finally landed a job as a roustabout on an ASRC project in Valdez, Johnston said.

Levi did well, showed a good attitude and didn't complain about working in the weather, he said.

For those of you unfamiliar with what a roustabout is all about, here's a brief educational video:
