Sarah Palin -- Stalker Threatened to Rape My Daughter

4/14/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Palin has obtained a new restraining order against the stalker who's been terrorizing her family  -- after the man allegedly made several disturbing threats ... including raping Sarah's daughter.

A judge in Anchorage made the new TRO official last week -- after Sarah claimed 19-year-old Shawn Christy had become more "brazen" in his threats to harm Sarah and her family ... and even rape her daughter.

It's unclear which daughter Sarah was referring to in the legal docs -- but she later mentions that the stalker targeted Willow in his threats and it "bothered [her] tremendously."

It doesn't end there either -- according to the docs, Shawn phoned Sarah's house calling her a "slut or whore" ... and Sarah's dad claims the family was so spooked they "made sure we armed ourselves."

Sarah's due back in court on April 27th -- to make the temporary restraining order permanent.

So Kobe is getting fined a 100K for a one word slip, and Palin can't shack her and her family of this psycho path. Priorities all all messed up in this country.

Regardless of what Sarah Palin has done, she and her daughters do not deserve threats of rape etc. Only a truly sick mind would justify such atrocities! Seek help!
The stalker should be locked up and have the key thrown away.

You know I would never want any harm to any human person but really I am so sick of Palin wish she would go back under the rock she crawled from, she is the biggest phoney I have ever seen or heard, and people who give her the platform well lets just say they are just as stupid as she is...

She must have this Christy guy on retainer so she can pull him out every time she needs a deflective shield from other stories. Probably the Trig birth hoax story must have some legs to it.

I'd be interested in seeing the proof of these calls. Her history of telling the truth makes this very suspect.

If these constant claims of rape were true, what sort of parents would keep calling up TMZ to tell them all about it?

Right, like they weren't armed to the teeth already. Sarah Palin probably masturbates with a shot-gun.

I would not take anything Granny Grifter says at face value. She is a known liar and seems addicted to victimhood.

Look at her claims logically, folks. If Shawn Christy had made a phone call to the Palin home don't you think, firstly, that the Palins would have call display, not have an answering machine and their calls are all monitored by them. Secondly, the FBI and the local AK police, because SP has been "a victim" of harassment before, would be on top of any threat or harassment by this guy. This is pure unadulterated SarahPalin-speak, another lie by Her Highness, the Queen of Victims. I note Sarah doesn't dispute any of the recent allegations about her false claim that Trig is her child, about Todd screwing around, and the fact that her public persona is a complete fabrication. She is so phony I expect the paint on her face, and her face itself, to start peeling away any day now.

I say turn him loose!
Once he tries to get onto their property (unannounced, uninvited and after having threatened the family), let one of the many marksmen (or markswomen) in that family solve that problem permanently. He ain't nuttin' 2 cents worth of lead won't fix.

Anyone could have predicted this reaction by Sarah. The big news story was about why Sarah is afraid to release any medical records showing that she is Trig's mother. Instead she reacts by a sensational story about a stalker threatening her and her family. Next she will use this stalker as an excuse about why she will not run in 2012--but also will not return any of the money she received in her PAC. Sarah, there are two sides to every story and you should use some common sense before you get hysterical about any threat. You have stated previously that Shawn Christy has been sending you threatening letters for over two years. You claimed that he even came to Alaska with a gun--and your Dad said in an interview how he was so scared of this man that he slept with a loaded gun. Shawn Christy's Dad said that his son had not come to Alaska with a gun--that he was at home with him and that he is under a physician's care for mental illness. Having a relative who is mentally ill is just as much a burden as having a son with Down Syndrome. Show a little compassion--Shawn is mentally ill and delusional. Stop reporting to the media every thing that he does. You are just giving him a lot of attention and believing everything that he says. By being so scared that you report every threat to the media, it shows that you have little faith in the legal system and the mental health field and Shawn's own support system. You open up the doors to any kook who now knows that you go to pieces if they send you a message or threat and sign Shawn's name. I am not trying to trivialize the threats that you receive--but are recommending that you report them to the correct authorities and not try to bring notoriety or harm to Shawn just because you recognize his name at the end of a letter. Get a thicker skin--you wanted to become a celebrity and get a lot of attention. Ask other famous people or families who have money--protect your family's privacy and don't show the media how fearful you are.

Sarah Palin must have felt people weren't paying enough attention to her. What about the rumors that she never gave birth to Trig? Now that is a real story.

Sarah Palin plays the victim card so well. Then profits from it. I see a book, a reality show, a talk show and a mini-series as a result of this. Millions of dollars to be the "poor victim".
