From the Times Online:
THE rambunctious extended family of Sarah Palin, the Republican governor of Alaska who ran for US vice-president, produced a fresh scandal this weekend when the mother of her daughter’s fiancé was arrested on drug charges.
Sherry Johnston, 42, was arrested on six charges relating to the prescription drug oxycontin, which is widely known as “hillbilly heroin”.
Oy, do I have a guy for her!!!

As Mike Huckabee gains in the polls, the former Arkansas governor is finding that his record in office is getting more scrutiny. One issue likely to get attention is his handling of a sensitive family matter: allegations that one of his sons was involved in the hanging of a stray dog at a Boy Scout camp in 1998. The incident led to the dismissal of David Huckabee, then 17, from his job as a counselor at Camp Pioneer in Hatfield, Ark. It also prompted the local prosecuting attorney— bombarded with complaints generated by a national animal-rights group—to write a letter to the Arkansas state police seeking help investigating whether David and another teenager had violated state animal-cruelty laws. The state police never granted the request, and no charges were ever filed. But John Bailey, then the director of Arkansas’s state police, tells NEWSWEEK that Governor Huckabee’s chief of staff and personal lawyer both leaned on him to write a letter officially denying the local prosecutor’s request.
