According to US media reports, the book claims Mrs Palin had a six-month affair in the 1990s with Brad Hanson, Todd Palin‘s business partner at the Polaris snowmobile store in Big Lake.
Mrs Palin has previously denied the allegation.
Mrs Palin also allegedly had a fling with former NBA player Glen Rice in 1987 when he was in Alaska for a basketball tournament, a year before she eloped with Todd, the book says.
It also alleges that the former former Republican vice-presidential candidate snorted cocaine off a 55-gallon drum while on a snowmobiling trip with friends, and smoked marijuana with a professor at Mat-Su College in Alaska.
McGinnis went to Alaska to do a hit piece on Palin. Are we surprised at his “revelations”?
Scurrilous authors can float any wild assertion as “fact” and the truth will never be known. It’s akin to asking the question “have you stopped beating your wife yet?” There is an assumption that McGinnis “knows” and that his point of view is factual when it really appeals to our worst instincts.
I don’t care if Sarah Palin smoked pot or did a line of coke in college. A lot of us did. I don’t care who she slept with before her marriage. I don’t care if she’s had problems in her marriage. It’s NOT my business.
McGinniss’s liberal heroes like FDR had mistresses. JFK was an unapologetic playboy and partied naked up until his assassination. His Dad, his brothers and at least one of his sisters were swingers as well. Cluck cluck, Enquiring minds want to know. Slick Willie disgraced the Oval Office with Monica.
“Even The New York Times called this book “dated, petty,” and that it “chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip”. No matter where you stand on Sarah Palin, the author has a history of writing tabloid lies, and is no better real author but merely writes unsubstantiated dribble. It is like picking up the National Enquirer. He might as well have said, Palin was an alien from Zog and had blue and pink baby hippos, for all the credibility this author possess. If the NYT said it was garbage and they hate Palin being a leftist media outlet, believe me this is garbage.
Two words for you Sarah, law suit.
