Funny how Republicans are willing to invade private lives for every little puritanical whim, yet when it involves someone's family, it becomes aÂ privateÂ matter.
Sherry L. Johnston, the mother of Bristol Palinâ€™s fiancĂ©, has been arrested on drug charges.
Johnston was arrested at her Wasilla home and charged with six felony drug counts. Alaska state troopers then searched the Johnston home for further evidence of narcotics. She was charged with second-degree misconduct for allegedly manufacturing narcotics and a fourth-degree misconduct related to possession.
She has been released from the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility on a $2,000 bond.
Johnston is the mother of Levi Johnston, who was vaulted into the national spotlight in September when it was announced that he is the father of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palinâ€™s teenage daughter Bristolâ€™s child. The baby is due on Saturday, and the two are set to wed this summer.
Via a spokesman, the Alaska governor issued this statement to the Anchorage Daily News: â€śThis is not a state government matter. Therefore the governor's communications staff will not be providing comment or scheduling interview opportunities.â€ť
