The 20 year-old daughter of the former governor of Alaska and current reality star Sarah Palin, has purchased a five bedroom house in Maricopa, Arizona. The former Dancing with the Stars finalist paid $172,000 in cash to purchase the house that was in foreclosure. Maricopa has been identified by some as the “poster child of the housing crisis.”
Her house is located in Pinal County which is part of the Phoenix metro area. Pinal country was formerly part of Maricopa county where another ‘celebrity’ rules – Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Sheriff Arpaio, who is currently fighting numerous lawsuits for racial profiling and violation of civil rights, is known for his tough anti-immigrant stance and his intense dislike of them ‘darn illegals”. HS News isn’t sure if the two local celebs know each other or if the Sheriff plans to drop off a welcome neighbor gift.
