(Newser) – The banned bloggers list Todd Palin instituted for his wife’s book signing in Wasilla last week has made its way online, revealing the identity of the fourth banned journalist, among other things. The two-page memo for the event, uncovered by Talking Points Memo, contains a section unambiguously titled, “DENIED ACCESS LIST PER TODD PALIN.” Below were three names (a fourth was tacked on), and instructions to coordinate with Todd to kick them out should they not identify themselves as media, which added, "They are not welcome by the family."

The now-revealed fourth name on the list is Andree McLeod, a Republican and former Palin ally who’s filed loads of ethics complaints and lawsuits against the Palins. Gawker adds that McLeod, who is not a blogger, is a "bit off her rocker": She once lodged a complaint about "the amount and magnitude of cleavage being exhibited by female employees in the State of Alaska offices these days."
