One of the events discussed in former Gov. Sarah Palin's book, "Going Rogue, " was a disturbing occurrence that affected the family: a vile threat made against Palin's daughter, Willow, while she was attending school in Juneau.
The threat was made in a MySpace post.
The family reported the threat to the governor's security detail and they investigated the matter, including interviewing the individual who made the threat at that person's home.
Though no charges were brought, the Palin family remained very concerned. The matter involved minors and was likely not subject to public review. A reporter for the Juneau Empire was directed to talk with the governor's security detail. It is not clear whether he did so. (He did so.)
Contrary to the implication of the report, the threat was real, the threat was serious and the threat was responded to.

Whoa, whoa, back the bus up. Let me get this straight. NOBODY knew about this threat in Juneau? Not School District Superintendent Peggy Cowan? Not Juneau Police Chief Greg Browning? And according to State Trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters, the people in charge of the Governor's security detail, they had NEVER been notified of this either?
So just WHO is Juneau Empire reporter Pat Forgey supposed to talk to? It looks to me that he did his job quite thoroughly.
Sorry Sarah you are going to have to do better than this. "Not subject to public review" my ass!
On the other hand I just have to give a big shout out to Meg Stapletongue! "Hey girl, where you been! So nice to see that you are back in action. Hey, did you know your boss is probably lying again? Just thought you should know."
And speaking of "shout outs". "Hey Sarah, do you know who I have been talking to lately? Well it just so happens they will know all about whether this incident was reported or not. What do you think they will tell me when I ask them? You have yourself a very nice day."
