Below is an email I sent to Sarah Palin in August of 2008 on the anniversary of my wrongful arrest. I included some information about the 6th, 8th and 9th amendments because by then I was pretty sure she had never heard of them. This was about the time I had figured out she was not a real governor and could care less about the people of Alaska.


Sixth Amendment: In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial(denied), by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed(prevented by lies which came from the public defender agency), which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation(no real evidence was produced for the charges, common practice in Nome); to be confronted with the witnesses against him(two perjurers called serial bullies); to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor(not allowed by public defender agency), and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense(there was no assistance).

Ninth Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

(The state of Alaska violates the constitution to harm citizens and aids the criminal element in this state. The criminal element includes many of the legislators, commissioners and directors of departments.)

Eighth Amendment: Excessive bail shall not be required(they knew I would not have what was imposed as I am on disability), nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted(this has been imposed on many levels).

Governor Palin,

Exactly one year ago within minutes I was wrongfully arrested and then taken on a journey of terror through four different jails/prisons in this state as I was promised all along the way I was going to Nome for a hearing. This was all after ADA Earthman and Judge Esch scheduled a hearing I was not informed of and the public defender agency not only did not inform me of, but did not go to themselves. The warrant was issued against an email I had sent to Trooper Derek Loop, one among many I had sent him about the activities at the horrible place I was living at. It described how I was holding my last months rent due to having had to pay utilities(included in rent), having money conned and stolen from me by the owner, and much more. This email in no way shape or form implicates me in this stolen money nor anything else. Pursuant to the landlord tenant act citizens have a right to due process when their landlords do not provide a tenable situation.(no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause...),The man had stolen my wallet several weeks prior to this, but when I called the state troopers they said they would not investigate. Nor did they do anything when I reported theft, vandalism, meth being cooked, danger to myself or to the four year old child living there.

The owners were pulling an insurance scam and had ignored my complaints, emails and phone calls that the other two tenants were stealing his furniture, etc. After I gave them the notice one of them shortly became upset and would not tell me why. He then said he had $700 taken from his wallet the next day. The first person accused was someone I believe was in jail at that time. Interesting they claimed he had left a note in the lodge. One of the owners is a con man, he also cons the other brother. I am %100 sure he took the money from his brother's wallet and I was sure of it from the start. Some people believe the whole thing was an act. The reason I think he did it is he steals everything he gets his hands on. His best friend told me he stole money from his wallet and most of his things from his storage unit. Everyone knew I stayed there most of the time and had him convinced I slept all day to keep him from stealing my things.

The night I was arrested officer Loop took pictures of everything in my room. The state troopers have apparently destroyed them so I can not use them in court. They were asked for them over a period of several months and refused to give them to me. Now they claim they are gone. They also refuse to charge the man who falsely accused me in a police report of taking his money with a crime. One of the troopers actually told me it was not against the law. I quoted him the statute. The state troopers are corrupt to the core. Officer Loop and the female officer who transported me from Kenai to Anchorage are exceptions. The DOJ(Svobodney) has told me they will not do anything about DA Earthman. I was arrested for retaliation. The judicial system is very corrupt and out of control, so nothing is being done about(Judge) Ben Esch. The director of the board of licensing for nursing(Nancy Sanders) told me a lie to harm my case. It goes on and on. The public defender agency did the opposite of defend me. It is too numerous to list here. The worst being to lie to me that I would have expert witnesses at my sentencing hearing and then I had none. When will you do something about Quinlan Steiner?

When I was originally accused of several crimes I did not commit and had a public defender who smelled of booze and had alcoholic lesions on her face no one did a thing.

You got rid of Monegan? But, you supported someone like Schmidt who is running a dangerous prison system where the corrections officers psychologically torture inmates, deny them basic hygiene and deny the most basic of health care. It is truly something I could have never imagined in my life. My medication was withheld and I am just now getting over that. The phones go almost nowhere in the jails, making it impossible to get someone to post bail.

I have not gotten so much as an apology, except from one public defender who shall remain unnamed to prevent retaliation against this person. What I do get is several government agencies playing games, putting me off, accusing me of all kinds of crap when I try to talk with them. Hell even one of your aids told me the department of law said they could not talk with me. Sounds more like a dictatorship than a democracy to me.

The public defender agency on every level, the state troopers, DA Earthman and Judge Esch all knew Robin Hume would steal my things and starve my beloved cat, Misbehavin. They allowed it to happen. WHY? How can so many levels of government plot together to be so cruel and unjust? The only explanation is they were told to do what they did by someone from the top. Otherwise it just makes no sense at all. (...without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use...).

If even one of these agencies had done their jobs or you had listened to my complaints in the beginning most of this would not have happened. Clearly advancing your career is more important than justice, health, and safety of the people. It remains that I am most angry about them allowing my cat to be tortured and starved. This is America. You had no right.

This email got this auto-response: Thank you for writing to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The concerns, opinions, and/or information you have sent are important and valuable to the Governor. Although she is unable to respond to each and every email herself, your message has been received and is being reviewed by the appropriate staff person in this office who can best address your need suggestion, or comment. At the point I had written this email I knew I was not going to get that response from the "appropriate staff person".  Sarah Palin was clearly oblivious to the concerns of the people in Alaska.

At this time I did not know that Joe Schmidt, the director of the department of corrections was her classmate and most probably former lover. I really knew very little about her like so many others. I could not conceive of a governor whose real agenda was to infiltrate the government by putting people in key positions to advance her creepy dominionist agenda. Even though she has resigned we are living with this burden. Hell, one of them is our new governor. I followed up the email with one of many phone calls to remind her aids that I will never stop telling my story, the judicial abuse of the native people in Nome, or the conditions in the prisons. Of course I have to remember how busy Sarah Palin was during this period, it takes so much time and energy to coordinate lies and cover-ups. She must have been exhausted from all that vindictiveness she is well known for. How selfish of me to think a governor should take busy time out of her day to investigate my complaints of corruption and abuse, she was busy reading all those magazines, "all of them, any of them that have been in front of" her "all these years", don't you know.

To this date no charges have been filed against Robin Hume or Steve Hume for animal cruelty, giving false information to law enforcement, or theft. Every attempt to file a report at the Anchor Point state trooper station was blocked. They played games, destroyed evidence, did not do their jobs, lied, threatened to arrest me again when I pushed the issue, and the supervisor of the trooper who told me it was not against the law to give false information to law enforcement called me a liar when I told him about it. I explained to him all of the phone calls at his station were recorded and all he had to do was listen to it. Judge Esch is still sending large numbers of native people to prison from Nome and almost no white people. ADA Earthman is still prosecuting, probably often without evidence because he simply does what the powers that be in Nome tell him to do. He should have been charged with using his position to maliciously prosecute me. The ACLU continues to not be interested in my case, nor apparently anyone else’s.

I NEED TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT ROBIN HUME!!! he hired me as caretaker for the winter -- verbal hire. I had paid rent to Jan 26th and then, for free rent, took over. I HAD to spend my own money for snow removal, for repairing burst pipes (not from freezing from RUST!), a flooded cellar, a drunken 100% of the time tenant whom Robin would NOT get rid of because "he pays the electric bill." Today, he and I got into a HUGE fight over him beating on my door and waking me up to use the printer, that I took OUT of the trash, fixed upand made work! HE could not have done it! He got bck a month ago and it's been one continuous act of disrespect, of "borrowing my things - without asking" (aka STEALIGN) and then, telling people it is ME that has their money! HA! Ido NOT have their money! BUT the three guests he has here now? If notfor ME, he'd have NO ONE. I spent the ENTIRE winter, with hundreds of hours of labor, CLEANING IT UP ... and buying new furniture with MY money .... and I WILL take it all when I go! BUT .. I WANT TO "GET" ROBIN HUME AND HIS LOUSY LYING BROTHER STEVE. THEY ARE BOTH HORRIBLE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT DESERVE THESE 3.3 ACRES OF LAND. IT GIVES THEM THE CHANCE TO KEEP HURTING PEOPLE! I want to nail his hide to a wall .. in COURT!

Not sure that first post went through but in case it didn't .. I want to sue Robin and Steve Hume for theft, for conning people, for putting unspsecting tourists into a dangerous situation, and more.

Lovely Virago, If you are real (I never know who might be playing games)you can email me by clicking on the envelope at the top of the right column. I tried to email you back, but I do not know if it worked. I would like to talk to you. I know this isn't Robin because he is illiterate and this post is not.
