Sarah Palin's Future Son In Law's Mother Arrested


I bet everyone thought MamaPop was done talking about politics and Sarah Palin.  Isn't the election over?  This is just one story that is too juicy to pass up.

Sherry Johnston, the mother of Levi Johnston – the 18-year-old who is the father of Bristol Palin's soon-to-be-born baby – was charged with six felony counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance, said to be Oxycontin.  She was arrested at her home in Wasilla by Alaska state troopers with a search warrant for an undercover drug investigation.  Bristol is due next week with Sherry's grandchild.  If this doesn't jump start her labor, I'm not sure what will.

Sherry has been charged with second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance – typically manufacturing or delivering drugs – as well as fourth-degree misconduct involving controlled substances, or possession.  She has not issued any comments.  She has been released on a $5,000 unsecured bond pending arraignment scheduled for January 6th.  Troopers said they have been investigating Sherry "a while."

A rep for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, said: "This is not a state government matter. Therefore the governor's communications staff will not be providing comment or scheduling interview opportunities."

Troopers released no other information, including the kind or amount of drugs, because details could "jeopardize an ongoing investigation," said spokeswoman Megan Peters.

I so want to be at Christmas at the Palin house.  Do the Palins and Johnstons spend it together?  How exactly does when one engage in small talk?  "So any plans in the New Year?"  "Yeah, staying out of jail sounds good."

I am glad you posted about this. It was all I could to stop myself from posting and tweeting like mad. When does the fun end with this first family of Alaska?


Just thanking my lucky stars again that she's not vp-elect right now.

Can't even help myself though. I have the warm fuzzies for Bristol who's about to have her first baby. It has nothing to do with her personally (cause, omg, baby at 18!) but everything to do with my wishing to be pg again.

*sigh* Need more pg bloggers to follow! LOL!


I heard if Bristol has a girl, Grammy Johnston was pushing for the name Crystal.


(Sorry, I had to do it.)


Sweet, sweet irony.


you know, Wasilla is pretty much a meth punchline up here (I live in Anchorage). They just shut down a lab making some kind of super meth recently...we were amazed that no one ever brought THAT up during her race, but i suppose that there were plenty of other things to keep her in the news...

Just when I thought it was safe to open up a page......As The World Turns - the Palin Chronicles, give us more material to laugh at!

Okay, I know Wasilla is a small town and all, but come on, a drug charge? Gah! Get a job will ya? So I guess this means Levi's mummy can't really be bitchin' at her son for knocking up his girlfriend...odds are it was the most boring thing he could have done!!

Please, please America let these people simply go away! I'm still trying to get rid of the twitch that could turn into Palin running in 4 years
