From early 2009 when Sarah was sexting with my son Shawn Christy, and up to the summer time when Sarah was putting in reports of Shawn being in Alaska, life was going pretty good for Sarah. It was not until the US Capitol Police from Washington DC and the Secret Service noticed that Shawn had been home the whole time with us in McAdoo PA that problems began for Sarah. The Anchorage FBI had known the whole time that Shawn was still in PA because of the agent they had in our local library in Tamaqua. This all led to Shawn ending up in Washington DC on June 11, 2009 at the US Capitol Police Headquarters. One week later the US Secret Service visited our home with the PA State Police and McAdoo Police to take a full statement from Shawn regarding the sexting. At this point Secret Service Agent Joe Conlin requested that we take Shawn for a psychological evaluation. This appointment was scheduled for July 3, 2009 at 2:00 pm Eastern Standard Time with Dr. Virginia Sherr in Holland PA.
We arrived at Dr. Sherr's office at 2:00 sharp. Craig and I were allowed to be with Shawn during the psych evaluation which lasted about 45 minutes. There was only one break in the session and it was about 20 minutes in where the doctor left the room for about 10 minutes. The evaluation went very well and basically Shawn was told that he had some emotional problems due to Lyme disease and also that he had a love for politics. Dr. Sherr also states that Shawn probably has an exceptionally high IQ and that he has near photographic powers of observation! This seems to have spelled the end of Governor Sarah Palin's political career.
I am posting a video from CNN which had aired Sarah's announcement that she was going to resign as Governor of Alaska. You will notice in the bottom right corner that CNN is giving the time of the announcement. You will notice that the time was 4:09 pm Eastern Time. That was just over an hour from when we left Dr. Sherr's office.
Multiple sources have told us that this announcement was not planned ahead and was a spur of the moment. Sarah had not only had a sexting affair with a 17-year old minor, but had also lied to Federal, State, and Local law enforcement about Shawn being in Alaska and so did Sarah's family, friends, and those who worked most closely to her during her tenure as Governor. Alaska's Governor Security and Anchorage FBI knew the reports about Shawn were false, but were still trying to organize a sting operation to somehow coerce Shawn into running away and going to Alaska. In this, they could not only cover up the former Governor's mistake, but set Shawn up to be some type of stalker/predator. The Anchorage FBI's hopes were to make the big arrest in Alaska which not only would promote their office but possibly promote Governor Palin's visibility and be rewarded in the future if she was ever to attain the Presidency. Of course, thanks to the intervention of the US Capitol Police and Secret Service, this never happened. This is the real truth why Sarah Palin resigned as Governor of Alaska.
