Reports that Track Palin vandalized school buses aren't true, says pal

By NANCY DILLON DAILY NEWS WEST COAST BUREAU CHIEF

Wednesday, September 10th 2008, 7:55 PM

Despite snowballing reports and rumors, Sarah Palin's eldest son, Track, was not part of the gang of four teenagers who criminally vandalized 44 Alaska school buses in 2005, a key culprit told The News.

"Track wasn't with me. Track had nothing to do with it," participant Deryck Harris, 20, said Wednesday in an exclusive interview.

Citing an anonymous judicial source, the Anchorage radio station 1080 KUDO was the first to report last week that Track Palin was the unidentified 16-year-old delinquent who not only trashed the buses but also swiped the bottle of alcohol that fueled the teen rampage.

The National Enquirer will report his "involvement" in the "notorious" attack in its issue out Thursday.

"I was friends with him. We hung out. But he wasn't there," Harris said, describing the incident as a senior prank gone awry. "It was my high school mistake. It was a really bad choice. I've paid my restitution."

Harris was expelled from school, wore an ankle monitor for 90 days, had to pay $4,000 and is on probation for five years. For community service, he did construction work on the Wasilla Bible Church that the Palin family attends in Wasilla.

Track Palin, 19, graduated from Wasilla High, joined the Army last year and is set to leave for Iraq this Thursday. Gov. Palin boasted of her son's enlistment as she became John McCain's surprise pick for vice president.

The McCain-Palin campaign declined to comment on the issue.

But rumors quickly swirled Track was forced to join up as penance for the alleged vandalism.

"I talked to him before he joined, and he was trying to decide between the Marines and the Army. It was totally his decision," Harris, who now lives in Anchorage, said.

"Track Palin was not involved [with the vandalism]," confirmed Capi Coon, the mother of another Wasilla teen arrested for the destructive spree.

Authorities never identified the two other juveniles accused of deflating the tires on 44 buses, breaking mirrors and disconnecting the engine block heaters of 110 buses in sub-zero weather.

The incident forced the Mat-Su Borough School District, which includes Palin's hometown of Wasilla, to cancel school for a day, according to the local paper the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman.

Oh look, another lie they are trying to spread is shot down.
Of course Track wasn’t involved if all the others were arrested.
Track, as far as I know, has never been arrested.

I’ve heard this rumor but never anything confirming he wasn’t involved. Glad he wasn’t. Very glad.

Doesn’t matter....Track briefly though about it before he clubbed a baby seal to death, and Sarah didn’t care.

Whew, it’s been almost 6 hours since the last smear was released. I was beginning to wonder if they’d run out of things to say.

The drive-by in-the-tank-for-Obama media won’t rest until they have attacked all of the Palin children, will they?

One would think any escapades/trouble that a politician’s kids would be involved in would have made the news when it allegedly happened. Why is this the first time some of these allegations are just now making headlines? (rhetorical question of course - I know what the answer is!)

Do they ACTUALLY think voters who like Palin are going to harrumpf and say, “Her teen may have been involved in vandalism! Well! There goes my vote!”?

The Drive-Bys really do think Americans are as stupid and shallow as they are.

Ya can just imagine the breathtaking panting from this reporter as he jotted down this salacious revelation while on the phone with one of the 30 DNC operatives sent up to Alaska ........
