The history of the house next door to Palin

Fox News' Greta Van Susteren, who often acts as Sarah Palin's information sherpa to the lower 48, puts up a photo of the tall fence going up to block any potential peering from her new neighbor, reporter Joe McGinniss. And Alaskan writer Shannyn Moore has some background on that neighbor's house:

The home Joe McGinniss is renting used to be an Oxford House from 2005 until 2008. The tenants were men recently released from prison who were recovering addicts...The Palins themselves rented the home McGinnis is staying in for six months in 2009, but weren't interested in purchasing it... During the election, the Secret Service guarded the Palin home from the backyard now occupied by Mr. McGinnis.

I've clipped a few things I don't see Moore offering proof for but the rest of this is verifiable. Palin uses the one-way Facebook information feed to give the impression of openness and honesty about her life -- her fans are the first to know, reporters hustle to type up what she says.
