I'll tell escorted back -- -- on the docket today Sarah Palin vs the ultimate nosy neighbor.
Seems the Palin family returned home to Wasilla Alaska the other day to discover that the house next door.
Had been rented out and not just by anyone but by Joe McGinniss.
Reportedly writing an unauthorized biography.
Of that Sarah Palin.
The former Alaska governor even posted a picture on her FaceBook page.
Showing Maginnis on his new perch a -- she says it's just yards away from her kitchen -- -- -- And her own Glenn -- heard directly from Palin about it and shared his thoughts on his radio program.
Last night bringing added 11 o'clock in an email and just says.
Unbelievable continued harassment.
The reporter author who continually -- hit pieces from the East Coast just moved in next door he's twelve feet away from me right now.
I spotted him -- you started mowing the lawn in shorts with -- in my backpack.
Things like that now are not gonna happen until the guy moves out this is a nightmare for my family.
And Glenn Beck is none too happy about it either so.
Of horrible I mean the deplorable but are any laws actually being broken let's ask our panel criminal defense attorney -- -- -- -- And Fox News legal analyst Mercedes -- -- panel.
So this guy -- picture.
I don't know what he's doing you -- -- and it looks like trying to see it.
Looks like you may have binoculars there at least that's the claim I can't see it close enough to now the point is he is next door he is right next door to her.
And she -- -- about how he's going to be there for five months while he writes a book about her.
He's going to be watching you know her children watching her gardening on and on it -- she will have no privacy now as this man writes his book.
That is called Sarah Palin's year of living dangerously John up.
Can she stop at.
I don't think so this is definitely creepy but I don't think what he's doing yet is illegal unless he crosses one of a couple of lines of he begins to actually stop currently under -- last flood doesn't seem to have a whole lot of bite unfortunately for Sarah Palin.
Or if he truly invade her privacy then she might have a cause of action against him but right now just being a neighbor.
Mercedes I look at the -- statute and the harassment statute in Alaska.
I don't think she's got.
I don't but there's another claimed called constructive -- and an invasion of privacy that's completely different yeah but you're going to civil right -- legal and -- and I think criminally and not be charged with stalking her there's nothing that he's done thus far however he's using binoculars -- he's using some recording device if he's using anything.
Pro actively to record something that.
-- -- -- Expectation of privacy she's singing -- -- or having a private conversation with their family having private conversation with her husband.
Whatever it is if she hasn't reasonable expectation of privacy and do you -- some recording device.
Then yes he is definitely cross the line.
Okay -- our viewers now because the stocking the -- -- -- in the Alaska says.
You've got you've got -- recklessly place another person in fear of death or physical injury you know eat it she it's not at that point yet let's hope it doesn't get there.
Harassment speaks you -- intend to harass another person.
In a manner likely to provoke an immediate violent response again we're probably not there yet but Jonathan.
What about a civil.
Lawsuit for invasion of privacy the elements of that according to the Alaska -- you have to intentionally intrude on someone's solitude or seclusion of private affairs I think we got that.
And a reasonable person as -- a highly offensive are we there.
I still don't think we're there a -- points those binoculars in her direction yeah -- well.
We think he's going to but he silly hair but in this he's doing -- he is he could be doing the most genius thing ever and again I feel badly for therapy and he want to meet a guy that gets beat up -- story on the block.
And -- -- the up close story doesn't get too close he's gonna sell a lot of it lets you can glean about your neighbors despite being -- I know my time my neighbors walk the dogs get up the company they keep.
That's what he's going after doesn't do anything really done -- At twelve feet away even when she had these private conversation cordial over here.
I know that we -- the patient privacy and that's what he's crossed the line yet what is either twelve -- -- -- -- -- the -- -- blinds open her children aren't gonna -- that -- without saying you know live without them being watched by this guy.
Have you should know that not only is -- fifteen feet away this -- -- -- a charity auction for dinner with her was willing to pay higher than 60000 dollars for it.
He dropped by the Palin home to -- a copy of his other book.
It's her her son showed up in Florida at a book signing -- -- bother her I mean it wet where does it stop I gotta go quickly Mercedes and then I got Iraq.
That's why I think the court's going to -- she should even go forward and -- -- -- -- protection this is getting absolutely insane if they had pictures of music of the -- peering into these children.
I think what we'll take that -- this.
Up and say yes Susan or protect gets them the children at a hole at a whole new element to it all right without thank you so much one final run for our viewers.
This is so wrong unfortunately it isn't stopping or harassment at least not yet -- might give rise to a civil suit for invasion of privacy.
But that will unfortunately take longer to litigate than the five months this -- plans on being there.
Sarah Palin does not deserve this public figure or not she is entitled to have a private life and so -- her family.
This is really deplorable.
