Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell If Todd Palin is a Pimp!

Ignorance is not bliss. Failure to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request for five months is evidence that the Federal Government is in favor of full disclosure, unless it might embarrass someone. On June 18th, 2012, I requested documents regarding a statement taken of David Chaney regarding Todd Palin’s activities as a pimp. Shailey Tripp, a convicted prostitute, alleged that Todd Palin, her pimp introduced her to David Chaney, the Secret Service agent assigned to guard Sarah during the 2008 campaign. David Chaney is also one of the agents who resigned as a result of the scandal in Colombia with a prostitute there. Shailey Tripp alleged that she received a visit from Mr. Chaney and provided sexual services to him, for which he underpaid her.

Shailey Tripp gave two verbal statements and one written statement to Merek Shaffer of Homeland Security before the Senate Subcomittee Hearing regarding the scandal in Colombia involving David Chaney and at least 11 other agents. Nothing was asked during that hearing about the use of prostitutes by agents on assignment in the United States. Mark Sullivan, the director of the Secret Service was clear that the Colombia scandal was an isolated event and that there was not a “culture of corruption” within the Secret Service.


Three months has passed since my appeal of the denial of my request for a copy of any statement taken of David Chaney regarding his introduction to a prostitute by Todd Paliln. After two months I was informed that my request “continues to be under review”. Now, three months later, I have still not received any response. Perhaps it is taking Homeland Security this amount of time, as it’s really hard to figure out how there is not an “overriding public interest” in production of these documents.


This is the e-mail sent yesterday regarding yet another reminder that we are still waiting.






Dear Ms. Teal,


It has been a month since I last asked about a response to my FOIA appeal in case No. 2012-A13. At that time you indicated my case “continues to be under review.” It has now been THREE MONTHS since my original appeal was filed and yet no response has been forthcoming. Please consider this as an additional supplement to the request.


Since the original request was made, Todd Palin has appeared on behalf of Ted Cruz, to support him for Senator from Texas. Todd’s trip was paid for by people donating money to SarahPAC. I think that people paying for his expenses might be interested in knowing if Shailey Tripp’s claim that Todd was a pimp were true. Ted Cruz has now been elected Senator of the United States. I bet people who voted for him would have like to know if one of his most famous supporters was a pimp.



More allegations have surfaced regarding a “culture of corruption” within the Secret Service. ABC news reports that the investigation by the Department of Homeland Security contradicts the testimony of Director Mark Sullivan when he denied that there was a “culture of corruption” within the Secret Service. That article referenced :

1. One of the agents who was in Cartagena also admitted to soliciting a prostitute on two previous occasions, in El Salvador in 2008, and in Panama in 2009.

2. Other allegations of similar misconduct were reported by Secret Service agents on trips to Romania and China.

3. Allegations that Mr. Sullivan knew of the history of use by agents of prostitutes have also been made.

4. ABC reported that in the three and one half years prior to the Cartagena scandal, there were only a report of 105 contacts with foreign nationals when in fact it was 423 additional contacts that were reported.


In the last few days there has been a report of a Secret Service agent who was involved in a “long term affair” with a Mexican woman. Rafael Prieto reportedly committed suicide after failing a national security polygraph. It was also reported that Mr. Prieto brought this Mexican woman to Secret Service functions attended by Secret Service Supervisors, including the head of the Orlando field office. The affair of many years of Mr. Prieto was described as being “well known” within the Secret Service.


There has also been the report of a Secret Service agent who has been charged with sexual abuse of a 14-year-old girl. That agent, Hector Cuellar was reported to have previously worked as part of President Obama’s detail.


Additionally there is an investigation underway in Alaska of a special task force headed by the Attorney General of Alaska regarding sex trafficking in Alaska.


Each of these reports further reinforces the compelling and overriding public interest in disclosing any documents requested in the original FOIA request. If a statement was taken of David Chaney, and if he confirmed that Todd Palin introduced him to Shailey Tripp, that would be some evidence of a “culture of corruption” within the Secret Service, and would additionally confirm the allegations by Shailey Tripp that Todd Palin was her pimp, which has been denied by Sarah Palin. If a statement of David Chaney was not taken, that would be evidence of a lack of good faith on the part of the investigators.


The longer these documents are withheld, the longer the damage to the public. People continue to give money to the SarahPAC thereby supporting the campaigning of Todd Palin for candidates including Ted Cruz and Newt Gingrich. The President of the United States continues to be guarded by Secret Service agents who may be involved with foreign nationals. Certainly this is the most compelling example of an “overriding public interest” in the production of these documents. A majority of the electorate in the United States has re-elected President Obama as our President, and it is in the best interest of the American people that we ensure his safety. If there is a “culture of corruption” within the Secret Service, it must be uncovered, and remedied.

If these documents requested are not produced, and a lawsuit is necessary, please be advised that I will ask that the Court award attorney fees for the necessity of obtaining these documents through litigation. There is legal precedent for being reimbursed for attorneys feels


Please produce the documents requested immediately.


Malia Litman



Make us believe that our government stands for justice and equality. If there is a statement by David Chaney, we are entitled to see it. We now have Senator Ted Cruz as a member of the United States Senate, in part because of the fact that Todd Palin appeared at a rally for him. The American people are entitled to know the character of the people endorsing and campaigning for our elected officials. As referenced in the above e-mail, it is clear that there is a “culture of corruption” within the Secret Service. The only remaining question is whether there is a “culture of corruption” within Homeland Security as well. Please produce the records!

Add yours

  1. Malia, have you addressed this issue through your Senators and Congressional Reps? Even if they are Republicans, the party must realize it needs to get rid of these bottom feeders and extremists. When one of your own becomes the historical buzzword for the worst possible V.P. candidate, it’s time to cut the strings. They kept Bush out of the 2012 mix, now they need to get Palin shifted from Fox to E Channel or TMZ or Cops.


    1. Ms Palin needs to be shifted to silent. She has done nothing of meritorious value to be passed on to anyone. She was a sham then, and she is a sham now. The sooner the Palins are off the radar, the better for our country. Her hatred of our President has done nothing but further widen the divide in our country. In the process she has shammed her whole family. Anyone who is only in it for herself, is not worthy of any praise. Todd found happiness outside of his marriage vows, but hangs on just like her bots. They are all hanging on because they are smitten by her illness and use her just like she uses everyone for self-aggrandizement. From the looks of things, the whole GOP has been smitten also, too. Cross-hairs, blood libel, Star of David…all accepted by the Party of No. Why would they investigate the Secret Service if they would ignore her hate spiel that took 6 innocent lives and injured many more. If they pall around with Ted Cruz and Ted Nuggent why should we question them when they supported Newt Gingrich? All such fine, upstanding Patriotic citizens. Why on earth would Homeland Security want to delve into him being a pimp for the Secret Service. Joe Lieberman? John McCain? Karl Rove?


  2. Good luck Malia. It is a shame that the wheels of justice turn so slowly in our country. I really hate having Ted Cruz as our new senator. He will be a detriment to the state and the Palins definitely need to be exposed for the criminals they are.


    1. shondi99,
      I don’t think that it’s a secret, but only something that they have denied. To have a government confirmation that Todd is a pimp and Sarah is a liar, would be hard to explain why charges haven’t been filed!


  3. Beyond your attempts to communicate with those conducting the investigations and others on the committees like Lieberman who has completely exposed himself as a total A**hole, and you’ve probably already done so, but my thought was communicating and providing your documentation requests & communications and responses to same to someone like David Corn of MotherJones as he has clearly shown himself to be above the norm of the MSM in digging in, investigating and exposing so much this year. He’s been like a ‘skud missile’ zeroing in and nailing it and has gained much street cred in his ability to bring the information out of the closet and into the light informing the public and the reporting by the MSM.


    1. de,
      Thanks for the idea! I’ll give them a few more days, as they may have been waiting until the election was over, but if it takes much longer, I may have to find a way to get their attention!


  4. Malia, maybe it is time to go public with this. Put this post as an ad in some national newspapers (open a PayPal account, and I am sure, people will be willing to help defray the costs for those ads!). Maybe also contact Bernie Sanders. Gloria Alred (sp?) might also be an avenue.
    Let us know how we can help you with this!


    1. FEDUP!,
      I’ll wait a little longer as they may have wanted to do it after the election, and if so the documents should be produced shortly. If not, then I may have to exhaust other avenues.


    2. FEDUP – I wouldn’t go down the road of Gloria Allred. She has made herself the laughing stock in far too many situations and that’s not what this situation deserves. It deserves someone who has respect in order to take it public if it has to be taken down that road.Gloria in the ‘legal’ field could be compared to Nancy Grace in the ‘media’ field.


  5. Well if they are evading – it must be HUGE…

    What they really need to investigate are these rumors I keep hearing about the affiliations with the Idaho Aryan Nations, and the KKK nationwide…

    This KKK klub that incites hate and violence!

    They had them on Nightline, and I laughed, hoping one of their
    “sheets” caught fire, but alas, with the dunce hats, that was funny…

    The prostitution scandal, is black mail, for the Palins, is why they won’t adhere to a request by anyone…they got officials under threats..

    And why Patraes resigned…to avoid that, so the news reports…and the FBI is investigating the “mistress”…

    May be they will move to Palin’s pimping…and money laundering?

    So Malia – you are cracking the surface with this but keep digging…

    It will open the nest of hornets…bring Raid…lol…


    1. The Lawman,
      I don’t know what David Chaney said, but feel confident they must have taken a statement, and that it is definitely in the public interest to produce the documents. the only question is how long they’ll take to produce the records.


      1. Malia, I doubt much will happen in the lame duck and there is also the issue the Lieberman is gone in January – so he certainly is not interested in upsetting his own applecart.

        The fortunate part is you have evidence of communications from Lieberman of his non-interest of involvement because you were not a constituent of his State yet he’s the head of the Committee and therefore should be addressing ALL complaints filed by ALL citizens of the USofA!!

        Should it be necessary for you to take it public — this information should also be included as NO ONE should get a free pass. Far too much gets swept under the carpet and it’s time everyone should get exposed as it is the citizens of the US that employ all these elected officials. The citizens are the CEO’s of those elected and earning their living via taxpayer money and most definitely those who sit on or head Committees as that does expand who they work for and answer to.


      2. de,
        I agree and my efforts to get this information will be firm, regardless of the consequences to either party. The American people, and women in particular, are being victimized by Todd Palin, and at a minimum, people should know the truth before they send money to the Pimp and his wife.


  6. Maybe there is an investigation going on that is taking several months and they choose to not respond until the investigation is complete. Look at how long the FBI was investigating the initial harassment of the woman before it was tied to Petraeus. I know it has been a long time, but I want to have faith that you will receive a response. It just seems strange that nobody is responding. If Petraeus can be brought down, so can Palin.


    1. Marie,
      I hope you are right!!! I hope they are conducting an investigation, and finding so much corruption that it is taking much longer than they thought!!! Todd Palin may be only a small part of the problem, but he is an important example of all that is wrong in our political system.


  7. If I were Alaskan, I’d send a letter to Parnell and the organizations backing this much needed crackdown on sex trafficking. Parnell is milking this in the media. It’s time for someone in Alaska to lift the rock Todd Palin is hiding under.

    Thanks for all your continued hard work, Malia.


    1. jk,
      The really frightening thing is that it doesn’t appear that he has to hide. The APD and the attorney general seem to be in the pocket of the Pailns.


      1. He’s probably Parnell’s pimp – it has been widely mentioned that Toad pimps for big chief high mucky Alaska mucks. Don’t forget, Alaska thinks they are “special” … well yes .. I guess they are. Aside from being a National joke for having a sociopathic narcissist as Governor, her husband is a known pimp for bigwigs.
        I would love to see the story grow legs…but Parnell will bury it. There is an even deeper question Malia – the prostitute murders. The Knik Road murder that was never cleared …
        I doubt that Toad would stop at simple pimping when he has the protection of the Governor of the State.


  8. Shailey Tripp clearly stated that Todd wanted names, documentation on ALL her clients that Todd sent to her. The palins have advanced from bribes, threats and bullying since day one. Even dating back to High School and earlier. My guess is that there are so many Gov. officials, military contractors, oil exes and more involved that it will be a blood bath. I think this investigation will surface soon. Im sure the petreaus issue took priority. And I just cant help thinking that woman was a rove plant. Republicans were and are so desparate that I believe that rove is behind many of the mysterious happenings such as the muslim video etc. Rove is a very corrupt scumbag.


  9. Malia. Thank you for your continued efforts to expose the truth. Now that there is another case of a high powered taxpayer paid military officer tarnished with corruption and sex. Seems like the FBI should know about the problems in Alaska. Please refresh my mind. Shailey Tripp did reach out to the FBI over 2yrs ago right? In the todd palin case, Im guessing at least 100 people will be indicted. I cant hardly wait to see this on the evening national news soon.


      1. Yes. that could be part of the problem OR THE PROBLEM. Do we know who that FBI agent is? Who is head of FBI? and who does he answer too? It will not go away, its just a matter of time. Has this been forwarded to Eric Holder?
