So it appears that Sarah has finally began to reap the benefits of the national spotlight, she now has her very own stalker. While I'm sure this isn't the first one or the last, this is the first one that she's needed a protective order for.
Apparently, Shawn R. Christy an 18 year old from Pennsylvania sent Sarah a receipt for a gun he purchased along with a statement saying “he tried to follow the Bible but had evil and wickedness in him.” In the petition for the protective order it goes on to say that he called Sarah from a 907 area code (which is an Alaska area code for those of you who don't know) number saying that he believed she had to be punished if she wouldn't tell the truth and also claimed to have had an affair with the former governor. Police have spoken with Mr. Christy apparently but I don't think we have heard the last of this nut job. It a shame we can't deport this guy.
While, like many Alaskans, I don't really appreciate what Sarah has done for this us, I am glad that this wacko is at least being watched and wish Sarah and her family the best.
