The National Enquirer is reporting Gov. Sarah Palin had an extramarital affair. The story doesn't mention when the alleged affair happened.
My sources in Alaska say the incident occurred in mid 1990s, right around the time she became mayor of Wasilla. Todd Palin's partner in a Polaris snowmachine dealership in Wasilla, Brad Hanson Hampton, and Sarah were reportedly flirtatious and but never consummated the relationship.
When Todd found out, he reportedly dissolved the partnership and sold the dealership. Hampton is now a member of the Palmer City Council. He was married at the time of the reported flirtation.
Here's the response from the McCain people:
The smearing of the Palin family must end. The allegations contained on the cover of the National Enquirer insinuating that Governor Palin had an extramarital affair are categorically false. It is a vicious lie. Governor Palin is the most popular governor in the country. She is a proven leader, an accomplished executive, a champion for ethics reform, and a fighter against corruption. The efforts of the media and tabloids to destroy this fine and accomplished public servant are a disgrace. The American people will reject it.
Senator McCain and Governor Palin look forward to discussing the issues that Americans care about, fixing broken government, creating jobs, making our country energy independent and securing the peace for the next generation by bringing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to a victorious end. Legal action will be considered with regard to this disgraceful smear. McCain senior adviser Steve Schmidt.
There's a lot of criticism about the way the media is treating Sarah Palin. A national story on an almost-affair does raise questions about how much of Palin's personal life should be dragged out for public scrutiny. It certainly must be an uncomfortable time for the Palin family.
Does a decade old flirtation have news value in a presidential campaign?
*I've gotten reponses back saying the incident may have tested her relationship but she seems to have come out the other side in a stronger relationship.
When the Enquirer reports they'll probably say that it was consummated, this person says it wasn't. The initial report from the Enquirer said the allegation came from "enemies".
The Enquirer's story about the fight with Bristol is crap though.
There was another story reported in the Enquirer, does anyone know what it was?
I can’t remember a public figure being criticized for flirting with someone 12 or 15 years ago. This might be a first.
There is more proof that Larry Sinclair did coke and had sex with Obama in the back of a Limo.
Maybe the Enquirer wants to get sued...once again.
I could have sworn Sarah blew me a kiss Wednesday night at the RNC. It’s another scandal!
If it wasn’t consumated, it wasn’t an affair.
mid 1990s...its 2008, almost 2009 translation at least 13 years ago...
13 years ago, Keith Olbermann was a credible sports commentator.
13 years ago, Barack Obama was still doing lines of coke.
13 Years ago, it was 2 years since Bin Laden Attacked the WTC with no response.
13 Years ago, the Democrats thought David Koresh a bigger threat than International Terrorists.
13 Years Ago Was 13 Years Ago...its very very old news.
So, are they going to dig into the Obama’s personal history? Biden’s? Biden’s sons?
Are they going to dig into those 135 boxes of files?
Hey, lets let it all hang out.
The National Enquirer ??!!
What she do sleep with elvis?
man these people are beyond stupid
And what about the allegations that Sinclair made, about Obama’s dead gay lover, just saying...
Can’t compare to Clinton 15,000 flitation events
My friend’s cousin’s girlfriend’s uncle is from Alaska, and he says Sarah Palin once smiled at a cute teenage boy who was on son Track’s hockey team. You heard it here first!
When are they going to report on Obama ‘flirting’ with Larry Sinclair? I personally don’t believe the story, but if rumors are what is ‘news’ these days....
It was "adultery in the heart."
How in the world do you have an “affair” with someone WITHOUT consummating?
To paraphrase the late Johnny Cochran,”If you did not consummate, you did not cheat on your mate!”
And Jim McGreevy was the limo driver.
Or Clinton’s at least 3 certifiable rapes.
Bernadine Dorhn is godmother to the Obama children, she worships manson..
Eskimo nookie bothers me, not quite as much. Oh yeah, and DU’ers are fags.
Just wanted to get that out.
You mean to tell me that OBAMA IS GAY ???!
