Who's giving Palin underwear?

(CNN) - A last-minute trip to Arizona for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin ended with an unlikely gift from controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

According to Arpaio's Twitter account, the tough on crime, anti-illegal immigration lightning rod gifted Palin a pair of pink underwear similar to those that inmates at his notorious Phoenix jail are supposedly required to wear.

"I just got done welcoming Sarah Palin to our County. Had a nice chat and gave her a pair of pink underwear," Arpaio tweeted Friday.

Palin arrived in Phoenix on Friday after kicking off a 15-day Tea Party Express tour on Monday to rally Tea Partiers in a final push before the midterm elections. It wraps up in New Hampshire on November 1.

CNN calls to the Arapio and Palin camps went unreturned Saturday.

    In our United States Constitution, Section l, Amendment XV, it states the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account or race, color, or previous condition of servitude. Now with that said, what will the Department of Justice do to the State of Illinois and New York for not sending or sending on time Ballots to our servicemen and women and their families overseas? I believe some cities in New York have done this twice now.
