Levi Johnston made an appearance on CBS’ The Early Show on Friday and made an announcement directed at Sarah Palin: “I wish I hadn’t put out that apology.”
“That was something I did to make my fiancée happy. She wanted it so we wrote something down and we sent it out because that’s what she wanted,” Levi explained of Bristol Palin on The Early Show about the public apology he made to Sarah and her family. “Together we put it out there.”
So why did the 20-year-old make the public apology if he didn’t really mean it?
“Trust me it’s easier to make them happy. If you gotta live with them, you gotta make them happy,” he said. “I wish I hadn’t put out that apology, it makes me look like a liar. The rest of stuff I can live with.”
And hopefully the lie he told will not effect his run for mayor of Wasilla since Levi is basing his campaign off of personality rather than experience.
“I really don’t think mayor is about qualifications,” he explained. “It’s about people liking you and believing in you. At the end of the day it is popularity, and whoever the people love most they’re going to vote for.”
But Levi said his decision to run for mayor was not to seek revenge.
“I don’t care what she did or where she was,” he said. “I’m doing it because I want to.”
And he’ll continue to take whatever press he can get.
“I don’t think I’m any more obsessed with making a career out of this than she is,” Levi explained. “Obviously she [Bristol]’s doing Dancing With the Stars. I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed, I’m just taking opportunities as they come.”
