Death Threats Targeting Bristol Palin, Mark Ballas

11/22/2010 5:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas have received death threats and "Dancing with the Stars" has measurably heightened security ... sources connected with the show tell TMZ.

Bristol Palin Death Threats
We're told the threats began to come in last week, after Bristol and Mark made the finals.  Execs on the show told Mark to stop tweeting because it was inciting people.  Mark complied.

Sources connected with the show tell us extra security will be on hand tonight for the show.  And, if Bristol and Mark head to New York, execs are talking about breaking format and not doing their interview outside in Times Square -- but rather in the studio, where it's more secure.

TMZ broke the story ... a staffer on the show opened a "fan letter" to Bristol on Friday and white powder fell out.  Turns out it was talcum powder, but the FBI is investigating nonetheless.

As one source said, "Everyone is genuinely worried.  This is a dance competition, and it's just gotten crazy."

Her kooky mother is probably behind the death threats trying to cause drama so she can say America needs order and needs her as president to solve the problems of the world. Idiot brained woman.

Charges of fraudulent voting on a reality television show - Hang the perpetrators!

Allegations of real voter fraud such as suddenly discovered ballots, voting machines, and ineligible voters - Violation of rights

Anybody ever notice that except for one election, which liberals still can't get over to this day, no Democrat ever seems to lose an election when they do a recount? Can you say Sen Al 'Not So Funny' Franken.

Its a freaking popularity show people and it always has been. Plenty of people who weren't the best dancers have won. As far as her not being a star and just the "self entitled child of a celebrity" what everyone be objecting if say Paris Hilton (who's famous for what being rich and making a sex tape)or some other fake Hollywood star who's actually just rich and pretty, no no objections. People who say the voting is because of political reasons..............hate Bristol because of political reasons. And death threats? Please, whack jobs.
