Palin's photo of her new neighbor, Joe McGinniss

Author Joe McGinniss (Fatal Vision, Blind Faith, The Last Brother: The Rise and Fall of Teddy Kennedy) has officially gone from just

a) that guy who got sued by a convicted murderer for pretending to be his friend to make money (!), and

b) an accused plagiarist — to stalker.

What else to make of Sarah Palin’s latest Facebook post?

Spring has sprung in Alaska, and with this beautiful season comes the news today that the Palins have a new neighbor! Welcome, Joe McGinniss!

Yes, that Joe McGinniss. Here he is – about 15 feet away on the neighbor’s rented deck overlooking my children’s play area and my kitchen window. Maybe we’ll welcome him with a homemade blueberry pie tomorrow so he’ll know how friendly Alaskans are.

Joe announced to Todd that he’s moved in right next door to us. He’s rented the place for the next five months or so. He moved up all the way from Massachusetts to live right next to us – while he writes a book about me. Knowing of his many other scathing pieces of “journalism” (including the bizarre anti-Palin administration oil development pieces that resulted in my Department of Natural Resources announcing that his work is the most twisted energy-related yellow journalism they’d ever encountered), we’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning. Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden, and the family’s swimming hole?

If McGinniss’ name sounds familiar to you, but you still can’t quite place him, this might help:

In the 2009 McGinniss began probing the explosive rise of Alaska governor and Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. He published a provocative and controversial article, “Pipe Dreams,” in the April 2009 issue of Conde Nast’s now-defunct Portfolio and in September he bid $59,999 on Ebay to dine with Palin.
