Former Vice Presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin has been granted a temporary restraining order against a teen stalker who claimed he had an affair with her.
RadarOnline.com learned that Shawn Christy, 18, has been allegedly sending threatening e-mails and letters to Palin for over a year.
After learning that Christy called and said he was flying to Anchorage from his home in Pennsylvania, and badgering her aides with threats to track her down at a book signing, Palin decided to ask for the temporary restraining order.
According to court documents, the troubled teen sent receipts from a gun purchase to Palin and her longtime friend, Kristan Cole. In a rambling letter he also said he had tried to follow the bible but had ‘evil and wickedness’ in him.
The court documents also stated that “the respondent has made numerous implied threats in his telephonic and written communication, including references to his guns – telling petitioner that she better watch her back and saying that he is buying a one-way ticket to Alaska and sending the receipt for purchase of the guns.’
Palin testified that Christy was delusional in his statements that he has had direct communication or contact with her or her daughter.
The court document stated: Petitioner also testified that respondent has falsely claimed to have had a sexual relationship with petitioner.’
The 20-day protective order was set and another hearing is scheduled for October 13 on Palin’s request to extend the order.
