Shawn Christy, Alleged Sarah Palin Stalker, Reportedly Causing New Concern In Alaska
Shawn Christy, a 19-year-old Pennsylvania teenager who has had a restraining order issued against him at the request of Sarah Palin, is causing anxiety in the Frontier State with reports that he has planned a visit to the former governor's hometown of Wasilla.
19-year-old Shawn Christy has told family members he plans to travel to Wasilla in the hopes of removing the restraining order issued against him last year after Sarah and her close friend Kristan Cole proved he sent them threatening emails and letters.
According to TMZ, Cole has mounted a legal effort to ensure that Christy won't be able to combat the restraining order.
AOL News reported last year on the case:
Judge Colleen Ray issued a 20-day protective order against the 18-year-old McAdoo, Penn., man after Christy sent Palin an e-mail informing her that his plane had landed in Alaska. A hearing on Oct. 13 will decide if a longer-term restraining order is necessary.
Palin testified by phone during the inquiry, The Associated Press reported. "Bottom line, he is crazy and could kill me," Palin said, according to the court transcript.
The Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman reports that Christie claims to have had an affair with Palin, and that he had made reference to a purchase of a weapon and a future visit.
"When someone sends you proof that they've purchased weapons. Proof that they know where you live. And said that they are looking into purchasing a one-way plane ticket to Alaska and then calls from a cell phone with a 907 number, it's over the line and we need protecting," Kristan Cole said at the time, according to the Frontiersman.
