Todd Palin, husband of Sarah Palin, is not involved in a prostitution ring with Shailey Tripp: cops
The New York Daily News ^ | January 26, 2011 | Aliyah Shahid

Posted on 01/26/2011 11:12:14 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Looks like the First Dude is off the hook.

The Anchorage Police Department blasted the National Enquirer’s recent report that Todd Palin is embroiled in a sex scandal involving an extramarital affair with a massage therapist who belonged to a prostitution ring.

"It was just guilt by innuendo, nothing else," Lt. Dave Parker told the Daily News on Wednesday. "There’s not one scintilla of evidence that Todd Palin had anything to do with this."

The Enquirer claimed 36-year-old Shailey Tripp was arrested for maintaining a house of prostitution in March and that cops had confiscated physical evidence that could tie ex-Gov. Sarah Palin's husband to the alleged affair.

The tabloid did not disclose when the alleged rendezvous took place or what evidence was seized by police.

Parker confirmed that Anchorage police arrested Tripp for running an illegitimate massage parlor, and evidence -- like record books -- were taken by cops as part of the investigation.

But none of the evidence examined by police showed any connection to Palin, Parker maintained, adding that Palin was never even on their radar.

They have no shame. "The ends justifies the means." BTW, if you'd seen a photo of the alleged hooker, you'd know the story was bogus from the get go...

Just polluting the stink they do so well. We know Todd didn’t do it and I don’t give a flying fig what the left thinks. If I want Todd Palin to be First Dude; I will vote for his wife. It’s time to to stop caring what the Left thinks and start caring about what we think.

“Todd Palin, husband of Sarah Palin, is not involved in a prostitution ring with Shailey Tripp: cops”

Todd Palin, husband of Sarah Palin, did not rape and murder a woman in 1990: cops

They got the story out there. That is the important thing. Get the story roiling around the leftest blogs. One more little step in the destruction of any Palin bid for the Presidency. My guess this is the closest we will see to a retraction.
National Enquirer? Doesn't a former Clinton confidant run this rag?

Any chance of a libel or slander suit?

The Palin’s are probably above that. Ms. Palin has a country to fix.

But maybe a nice lawsuit would put the rag out of business for good. Food for thought...

I figured it was bogus, the left is trying desperately to destroy Sarah at any cost, lies, slander, physically, by whatever means. God will protect that family and insulate them, spiritually, physically and mentally, from all that are trying to destroy them. They have many people praying for them.

In other mainstream media news today, Sarah Palin did not kidnap the Lindbergh baby, make Judge Crater disappear, or kill Jimmy Hoffa.

“Looks like the First Dude is off the hook.”

What crap. He was never on the hook. Even when there was no story, liberals, in their relentless, irrational hatred of Sarah, will try to make it seem like a story.

But, in a larger sense, it imitates their governance: Trying to make a policy out of nothing, and when the nothingness is exposed, giving it a name as though it actually existed.

They didn’t even wait until they had the facts, just what they hoped was true. Front page. They went for the jugular. I hope they are sued into oblivion and I hope they have to shut down. His face and his family names were plastered all over the article. In case anyone missed it, here is the opening shot courtesy of the birdcage liner National Enquirer:

“SARAH PALIN’s husband TODD is caught up in a sleazy sex scandal, The ENQUIRER has learned!”

Yet they still continue to ignore Man’s Country’s client list.

That was my question also.

Not necessarily the National Enquirer, but I remember the Vancouver Sun printing this story also. I have no idea what the law would cover, but I’d go after the ones that spread it into the mainstream.

Of course it was total BS, but that didn’t take away from some people actually believing it..they post garbage like this all the time..but will the National Enquirer apologize..nope..but they do have the statement on their front page, along with today’s rag paper having another article from the hooker saying she slept with Todd..the National Enquirer has ZERO shame, just like the leftists they are

I am RELIEVED!

While Todd seems like a good and decent person, there have been people who appear so, who have done some pretty weird things where sex is involved. Preachers, senators, etc. He would not have been the first to behave stupidly pecker-wise. So glad he didn't!!

Do y'all remember the headline that went something like "Sarah Palin's Daughter's Ex-Boyfriend's Mother Busted for Drugs" that ran a while back?

Is there no level to which the MSM will not stoop?

(Sorry, that was a ridiculous question.)

The hate of these leftists is mind blowing.

They are going to choke to death on their hatred. They are driven by it. It consumes them. If you ever watch Joy Bahar when she talks about conservatives she gets this look of pure disdain on her face. It is so obvious. But, this is good - we know our enemies.
