Sarah Palin bedding a budding NBA star, snorting coke and cheating on the First Dude?
The scandalous details are revealed in the highly-anticipated tell-all "The Rogue: Searching for The Real Sarah Palin," written by best-selling author Joe McGinniss.
Palin bedded future pro hoops player Glen Rice while he was playing at the University of Michigan, the National Enquirer reports about the McGinniss book.
The sharp-shooting Rice - who spent one season with the Knicks - was playing in the annual "Great Alaska Shootout" while Palin was a sports reporter with Anchorage television station KTUU, the Enquirer said.
Their one-night stand over Thanksgiving weekend 1987 reportedly occurred in the dorm room of Palin's kid sister at the University of Alaska Anchorage.
Palin was described by a friend as the aggressor, with the pal reporting "she hauled his ass down," the Enquirer said.
Less than a year later, Palin was pregnant by husband Todd and the couple eloped.
The book also repeated allegations - denied in the past by Palin - that she had a six-month affair with her husband's business partner in the mid-'90s.
The dalliance put a chill on the Palin marriage, with Todd complaining to friends about the loss of intimacy in their relationship, the Enquirer reported.
McGinniss, the author of "Fatal Vision" and "The Selling of the President," rented the house next door to the Palins in Wasilla while researching the bombshell book.
His agent, David Larabell, declined to comment on the Enquirer excerpts.
"As this is an embargoed book I can't comment on the specificity of its contents," Larabell wrote in an e-mail.
"Also, I haven't seen the National Enquirer article. I don't know about this instance, but they often get these reports right."
The book also reports that Palin was once seen snorting cocaine off the top of a 55-gallon drum while snowmobiling with friends. She also smoked pot with a professor while at Mat-Su College, the book says.
And it quotes a Palin family friend as saying that husband Todd Palin also snorted coke, describing him as "on the end of the straw plenty."
The Enquirer quoted a publishing source about the explosive stories contained in the 320-page book, due in stores next week.
There was no immediate response from the Palin camp.
Anything to distract from Obama’s failings.....
Gov. Palin got pregnant out of wedlock? Huh?
Is this guy the new Kitty Kelly or something?
McGinniss, fiction writer.
Funny, sounds like McGinniss should be reported @attackwatch for his smears!
Anyone who believes this crap needs a brain transplant...The NY Daily News is used primarily to clean the NYC Subway Cars no self respecting human would ever read that trash sheet.....
An alleged tryst between a Black male and a White woman. Reenacting the conception of Obama?
Is this guy trying to get Democrats to vote for her? She sounds like a combination of Bill Clinton and Obama.
Did McGinniss write about the porn movies that Palin starred in? /s
He would like to be. But Kitty Litter Kelly actually had a talent for writing fiction.
I don’t like Palin as I think she has manipulated a lot of nice folks to get money. That being said this “revelation” is nonsense.
She either ignores it completely,saying that she won’t dignify it..or she issues a complete and utter denial, or admits to whatever is true..
I can’t wait to read about everything Joe McGinniss alleged to have done in college.
Will this be in the fiction section? Is this satire? Was he abducted by space aliens?
“Sarah Palin had sex with basketball player, snorted cocaine and cheated on husband, book claims”
And all that before splitting kindling to cook breakfast!
That’s one heck of a woman!
Does this mean liberal left-wing losers will like her now?
Rice never could play any D.
The N.Y. Daily News is just as much of a tabloid as the Natl. Enquirer.
They found all this out and still can’t get their hands on Obama’s schoolmates, records, writings, law review articles, real birth certificate......
Is this guy the new Kitty Kelly or something?
And all he got was a bunch of recycled gossip.
This is old history.
McGinniss is the scuzzy, unbalanced perv who rented the house next to the Palins to spy, and called Sarah a Nazi on a morning show. Anyone who believes this garbage from him is a fool.
They eloped Aug 29, 1988. Track was born April 20, 1989.
“Gov. Palin got pregnant out of wedlock? Huh?”
That, I suspect, is the only true thing in the article. In any event, she married the father and has stayed married to him.
What? I thought she was a lesbian!!! You just can’t find good journalists anymore!
Isn’t this the idiot that lived next to her for a while. What a complete ASS!
Glen Rice has acknowledged the one night stand today.
Is this the liberal prick who rented the house next door to the Palins so he could spy on them?
So he’s basically saying that she’s a Democrat.
I'm not sure that word means what you think it means.
Now THAT would impress Hunter S Thompson.
Naaah, no creepy stalker behavior from that guy, honest.
/ sarc in case anyone needed it.
How many white chicks did Zero do, in his wild oats days?
Unless it has something to do with their jobs or it’s illegal, who gives a crap what politicians do in their private lives? If this story is true, Palin’s one-night stand with Rice took place before she was married, which would put her way ahead of most Washington politicians.
This crap doesn’t deserve a response.
Can she sue for libel?
Why would Sarah respond "immediately" to such nonsense?
After ALL these years, wouldn't we have heard of such crap prior to it's "book"?
This coming from the creepy stalker who moved into the house next to her, just to spy into her daughters bedroom.
Bunch of perverts, liars and evil.
He's also the one who railroaded Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald in his book (and TV mini-series) "Fatal Vision".
“The NY Daily News is used primarily to clean the NYC Subway Cars no self respecting human would ever read that trash sheet.....”
shhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaa! They endorsed Turner.
Is Joe McGinniss that POS that moved in next door to the Palins?
How can you cheat on your HUSBAND if you haven’t married him yet....the story title and premise is false.
McGinniss is a scumbag, but the part about the sex with the 6' 8" basketball player (supposedly 9 months before she married Todd and while she was dating him) did not come solely from McGinniss. Glen Rice and another source are backing the story.
I guess the sources could be lying, but the point is that McGinniss isn't making it up out of whole cloth. Objectively speaking, there could be something to it.
WOW! The ultimate tri-fecta!
There’s a book by Janet Malcolm that outlines in full detail the bad journalist ethics of Joe McGinniss. I’m sure somebody here will remember its title.
Anybody who would rent a house next to his subject is a real sickie.
I can’t believe anybody here would get taken in by this stuff. Plus, it was all detailed in National Enquirer back in 2008 and never gained traction.
His book will be dead as a doornail in a month.
Didn’t she have an affair with Larry Sinclair? I think I heard they smoked pot too. Oh .... wait ..... that was Hussein, wasn’t it. It’s all so confusing.
