Alaska Won’t Disclose If or When Sarah Palin Has Jury Duty

Allison Shelley/Getty Images(WASILLA, Alaska) -- How long can Sarah Palin claim that jury duty is keeping her from her cross-country bus tour? Indefinitely, in theory.

The state of Alaska is not required to disclose if or when Palin (or any citizen, for that matter) has been called for jury duty.

“Jury lists are confidential, regardless of who is on them,” a spokesperson for the Palmer courthouse, which presides over Palin’s hometown of Wasilla, told ABC News Thursday.

The former Alaska governor/potential presidential candidate blasted the media Wednesday for reports that she canceled her “One Nation Tour,” which has been on a three-week-long hiatus since it left the Northeast. Palin previously told ABC News she wanted to tour Iowa, South Carolina, Nevada and beyond.

In a Facebook post, Palin said she's "looking forward to hitting the open road again" later this summer but, for now, "civic duty calls," and, "even former governors get called up for jury duty."

She added that her bus tour will resume "when the time comes" and, in the meantime, "no one should jump to conclusions" about why she's not traveling.
