Today, Sarah Palin's Facebook page endorsed a move headed by her former hairdresser and a quickly fading Anchorage right-wing talk show host, to call two Alaska judges, in hopes of influencing a civil proceeding underway, involving Palin's daughter.
The request is inappropriate. Depending upon what transpires when this "protest" begins at noon Alaska time on Thursday, it could also lead to incidents of civil or criminal contempt of court.
This is a fairly serious matter.
I believe the issue was first raised very early today by Linda Kellen Beigel, at Celtic Diva's Blue Oasis. The high-traffic anti-Palin blogs Palingates and Bree Palin picked up on it, followed by Alaska blogger AKM, at The Mudflats, who also posted an essay on this at Huffington Post. The Alaska Dispatch is running a short item on it, linking to some of the above cited bloggers. The odds of the Anchorage Daily News, KTUU-TV or Alaska Public Radio Network taking this on are probably about even.
Here's a screen shot taken earlier today, of Palin's Facebook post, appearing to be encouraging people to harass these judges:
Palin has gotten in trouble in the past for meddling in court affairs. I doubt she will in this case, but her inappropriate endorsement of highly unethical court case tampering is just the latest example of how ethically challenged she truly is.
