Todd Palin, the wife… oops, I mean, the husband of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, came out swinging today, defending his wife against the accusations portrayed in a new book called, “The Rogue: Searching for the real Sarah Palin.” In a statement released by Sarah Palin’s PAC, Todd called the book’s author Joe McGinniss a liar, and accused Mr. McGinniss of having a “creepy obsession” with his wife.” From the statement;
“This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in right next door to us to harass us and spy on us. He traffics in innuendo and falsehoods. A few years ago he interviewed members of Sarah’s administration for a magazine article, and afterwards they said that he was the most disingenuous and intellectual dishonest writer they’d ever dealt with. He’s spent the last year interviewing marginal figures with an axe to grind in order to churn out a hit piece to satisfy his own creepy obsession with my wife. I’d ask that people consider these facts when evaluating his latest lies.”
“I’d ask the fathers and husbands of America to consider our privacy when one summer day I found this guy on the deck of the rental property, just 18 feet away next door to us, staring like a creep at my wife while she mowed the lawn in her shorts, unbeknownst to her that he was prying. As well as our teenage daughters while they tried to enjoy our traditional Alaskan summer days outdoors. Joe’s son told the media he advised his dad not to move from the East Coast to become our next door neighbor, but said his dad ‘was just waiting for Todd to be out of the picture.’ Sarah has never spoken to this intruder into our lives, our friends and family don’t speak to him, so we have no idea where he would come up with content for his book. He was on our doorstep one day trying to make conversation with our son until Track cut the conversation short after discerning Joe’s odd behavior, and I spoke to him one time when I saw him 18 feet away, just to find out who he was. He took that conversation and reported it to the media as me ‘threatening’ him.”
The claims made in McGinniss’ book accused Sarah Palin of having a one night stand with a former NBA star, Glen Rice. The book also states that Mrs Palin had a six month affair with one of Todd’s business partner Brad Hanson, and that she used cocaine.
Glen Rice is said to have confirmed the one night stand with Mrs. Palin, but Brad Hanson denied the affair. He released a statement saying;
This is the same old story that went around in 2008. It is a complete and outright lie. Todd and Sarah Palin have been good friends for many years, and in fact we still own property together. We sold a former joint business venture for business reasons, nothing more. These attacks are shameful and those making them seem to be out only to destroy good people and make money doing so.
Sarah Palin likes to talk about abstinence, you know, no sex before marriage. Maybe Bristal knew about this all along, the little family secret. This would then explain why Bristal didn’t listen to her mother’s “no sex” teachings in the first place.0
