The former half-term, half-wit Governor of Alaska was set to attended the Republican National Convention this weekend alongside the party’s presumptive nominee, Donald Trump, on Monday.
But suddenly Sarah has other plans and won’t be attending the convention, according to reports. Track Palin, Sarah’s son, is in jail on domestic violence charges. If you’ve been keeping up with their crazy family, you probably remember back in January when he was arrested for drunkenly attacking his girlfriend, who had to hide under a bed just to avoid the path of his wrath.
According to the police report obtained by Gawker, the events unfolded as follows:
‘She and her boyfriend of one year, Track Palin, left a different residence together and were arguing the whole way home. Once they got to his home they argued in the car, then in the driveway . They were screaming and he was calling her names. [Redacted] told Palin that she had called the cops even though she had not, in attempt to calm him down and to scare him away from “touching her”. Palin approached [Redacted] and struck her on the left side of her head near her eye with a closed fist. [Redacted] got on the ground in a fetal position because she didn’t know what else he would do. Palin then kicked [redacted] on the right knee. [Redacted]’s phone was sitting on the ground in front of her. Palin took her phone and threw it across the driveway. She retrieved the phone and went inside the house. Palin was already inside and holding onto a gun, yelling “do you think I’m a pussy?” and “do you think I won’t do it?” [Redacted] stated Palin “cocked the gun” and was holding the rifle out next to him with the his right hand near the trigger and his left hand near the barrel, with the barrel just away from his face pointed to the side. [Redacted] was concerned that he would shoot himself and ran outside and around the house. She didn’t see where Palin went, so she went inside and up the stairs, where she hid under a bed. Shortly after, she heard Palin walking around inside looking for her. Palin left after not locating her.’
On Thursday evening, Little Green Footballs blogger, Charles Johnson, tweeted the following:
Sarah Palin’s son Track has been remanded to jail on his domestic violence case. Link: https://t.co/jbmwOgCrrU
Case #: 3PA-16-00145CR

The link in his tweet directed his followers to the website of Alaska’s judicial system which details the events and shows he’s been “remanded into custody” for the same incident.
As the Daily Kos noted, the three charges are Class A misdemeanors but, likely in anticipation of the negative press coverage, Sarah Palin probably decided to cancel her plans to speak at the GOP convention.
But if you ask Trump why Palin will be absent, he’ll give you a different answer. The businessman told the Washington Examiner in an interview on Thursday:
‘It’s a little bit difficult because of where she is. We love Sarah. Little bit difficult because of, you know, it’s a long ways away.’
Right. As if she hasn’t already formally endorsed a billionaire – but wait – it’s “difficult” to get from Alaska to Ohio.
