In an explosive new book by Joe McGinniss, some shocking claims are made about the 2008 Republican vice president candidate, Sarah Palin. The book , called The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, seems to have found her and includes claims that Mrs. Palin used cocaine, cheated on her husband with his business partner and had an affair with an NBA star.
Joe McGinniss’s book The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, which is due to be published on September 20, also alleges that the former governor of Alaska is far from the traditional family woman she claims to be.
Mrs Palin, 47, had a one-night stand with Miami Heat basketball star Glen Rice less than a year before she eloped with her husband, the book claims.
She is said to have met the 6ft 8ins player in 1987 when he was playing in a college basketball tournament in Alaska and she worked as a sports reporter for KTUU television.
It is also claimed that she had a six-month affair with Brad Hanson, who ran a snowmobile dealership with her husband Todd – a betrayal which led to Todd dissolving their business.
How will the Fox News and Conservatives spin machine explain this one? Don’t be surprised if they praise Sarah Palin’s cheating ways as more evidence that she is “just a regular person.” They will claim that everybody does it, and may even build a shrine in her honor. It’s the Republican way, sweep this under the rug if the possibilities exist that she can advance their political agenda.
