The Sarah Palin stalker wants the world to know he's innocent.
His hilarious, dubious explanation? Sarah texted him first!
The father of 19-year-old Shawn Christy says that back in 2009, his son began receiving "ominous" text messages from an unknown number.
The person sending the texts dropped several hints about her identity, including that she's from Alaska and works in politics ... obviously, it was Sarah Palin.
Why would Palin contact some random guy in Pennsylvania? Shawn's dad couldn't explain that part, but they alerted the FBI about these mystery texts.
The bureau didn't investigate Sarah, instead turning on Shawn, gathering evidence against him to secure the restraining order that he's still under.
Shawn's dad says they've spent thousands fighting the protective order to no avail and have since been forced to declare bankruptcy. Really, guys?
Why do you need the order lifted? Just don't go near Sarah Palin. Is that so hard? Besides, Sarah would just Facebook you anyway. Texts? Come on.
