An event scheduled for May featuring Sarah Palin was canceled the day after it was announced, citing "personal attacks" against Palin and "safety concerns."

The Sharon K Pacheco Foundation announced the cancellation of their 2011 Patriots & Warriors Charity Gala and included a statement on their Facebook page. It reads, "Due to an onslaught of personal attacks against Governor Palin and others associated with her appearance, it is with deep sadness and disappointment that, in the best interest of all, we cancel the event for safety concerns."

The foundation went on to say no direct threats were made against Palin or anyone else involved with the event.

Palin should take her own advise and stop her "pointless finger pointing". Why doesn't Palin stop embarassing herself and go back to Alaska. If Palin had put half as much effort into being a half term governor she might have been taken more seriously. Her political career is dead.

LOL -she still calls herself "governor"
What a shameless ploy for attention ... no threats were made directly but it's being cancelled for "safety" reasons for fear of "attack".
Liar, liar, pants on fire.

what is the point of anyone referring to her as "governor palin"? not only is she the former governor, but she quit the job. that should more or less mean that no one has to refer to her in that fashion ever again.

@Wiley: The event wasn't until May. If the backers of an unregistered charity can't figure out how to provide security for an event with 3 months of planning than they all must be as clueless as your darling Palin.

That ANYBODY puts weight on ANYTHING this woman says it is beyond anything I can imagine. This woman knows nothing. Thank you, John McCain, by the way! Thank you very much. Sarah Palin: Just go away. You've made enough money to pay for the illegimitate children your daughters will have in the next few years. Geez!

Nobody would buy the tickets! Had no choice but to cancel for lack of interest...using the scaredy tactics as an excuse...notice they go on to say there were NO threats against anyone...just disinterest! HaHa! Maybe if they had another keynote speaker the event could go on...I'd say it's Sarah's fault this charity won't be getting any money.

Obama never manned up to say I'm the first Bi-Racial president. Mom is white and dad is black (so what.) Obama still goes with I'm the first black president. No. Let's go with "politically correct" Afro-American. No.

Palin, will be the same token. Both are not qualified.

It's a true story, from right here in Denver. I was so thankful to see that it was cancelled. No one wants to hear her bullsh*t. She brings a trail of stink with her wherever she goes and Denver is much better than that.

This woman doesn't deserve the title "Govenor". She couldn't even finish 1 term. And I happen to know several people who have lived in Alaska for many years before, during and after she was the Govenor, and NONE of them thinks she's worth a damn politically. She's a snake oil salesman that is only loved by horny older conservative men an uneducated women that just want to vote for a woman. Personally, as a woman, I'm offended by her being used as the female politician card. BTW, there's plenty of females in politics that would have been excellent choices if we were looking specifically for a woman in the White House......and it aint Sarah. She's a buffoon that's making fun of our country, just by running for office.

Oh, and her daughter's a whore and not worthy of making a dime off the fact she was a high school slut that didn't have the sense to even use a condom. Nothing wrong with slutting it up in HS, but have the intelligence to keep from bringing a child into your mess. But, I have to say, she got what she had coming....she's going to have that idiot, Levi, as an albatross around her neck forever, hahaha.

Plenty of Republicans wish this woman would go away as well.

She's probably one of the worst Americans ever. She's dangerous in that she has a VERY low IQ and attracts others just like her. Stupid and violent. That's Sarah Palin.
