(Newser) – Sarah Palin says the 19-year-old who threatened to kill her has stepped up his game, threatening to harm her family and even rape her daughter. Palin made the accusations in court documents filed to get a new restraining order against Shawn Christy, according to TMZ. Palin doesn’t specify which daughter Christy allegedly threatened, but she later mentions that he focused several threats on Willow. She also says that Christy called her home and called her a “slut or whore,” which according to Palin’s dad was so frightening that they “made sure we armed ourselves.”
