Salacious details about Sarah Palin are quickly emerging from leaked copies of Joe McGinniss’ highly-anticipated book The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin.
The book, which is said to answer such questions as “Who is she, really?” and “How did she happen?” according to a statement on the author’s website, details the former Alaskan governor’s alleged one-night stand with basketball great Glen Rice nine months before her marriage to husband Todd, reports The National Enquirer, which obtained an advanced copy of the controversial book due out Sept. 20.
McGinniss unearthed some of the details about the former U.S. vice-presidential candidate’s alleged affair with Rice in 1987 during his time living next to the Palin in Wasillia, Alaska last summer.
Rice, the former Miami Heat player, was in Anchorage for the college basketball tournament Great Alaska Shootout while Palin was working as a sports reporter for TV station KTUU at the time of the alleged hookup, the tabloid says.
McGinniss, who says he spoke with Rice, who confirmed the tryst, claims Palin had a “fetish” for black men during that time, the Enquirer says.
Rice, whose ranked eighth in NBA history with over 1,500 three-point field goals in 15-year career, could not be reached for comment Wednesday, The Miami Herald reports.
The book also details how Palin allegedly had a six-month affair with Todd’s friend and business partner Brad Hanson and how Palin and Todd experimented with cocaine use, adding that Palin was seen snorting cocaine off an overturned oil drum while snowmobiling, the tabloid reports.
On Thursday, McGinnis criticized Chicago Tribune, Newsday and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for not running the popular Doonesbury comic strip because it referenced his soon-to-be-released book.
“Major newspapers in Chicago, New York, and Atlanta refuse to run–for a full week or more–a comic strip that refers to excerpts from a book that dares to criticize a woman who once ran for vice president and then quit as governor of her state and has subsequently made millions of dollars by doing reality shows and appearing as a highly-paid political commentator on a right-wing TV channel?” McGinniss wrote on his blog.
KNEW it! All females just knew what she was like!Knew people like her in High School. Ahaha--it's true then, Krystal had the Hots for her when he recruited her!! And she used her "wiles" on him. dang. so Typical!
She was proud of her nick-name Barracuda....it means what it means.
If Sarah Palin loses supporters because of this I guess that says a lot more about her supporters than it does about Sarah Palin.
I'm actually amazed that Glen Rice has confirmed this. If he's anything like the typical sports star, he's had plenty of one night stands. Being able to recall one in particular from 24 years ago is remarkable.
If she had had the courage to tell this part of her life she might have got more votes. We have just had an MP outed by the Murdoch press as a former drug user. She said more or less "Yes we all were at that time. So what?". It does not seem to have hurt her.
Ralph I remember when I was in the 4th grade my teacher said " I don't beat around the bush" and I told him "no you probably beat behind it". Needless to say the conversation didn't go well from there.
These supporters of Sarah Palin must know something I don't know, if so please enlighten me. Otherwise all I have seen from this women is incompetence. In my opinion, this women might be the most unqualified...
While Sara Palin was contemplating if it would be more profitable to run or not to run,for her economic future that is, which is obviously the only thing that matters to her, a star was born. Michele Bachmann, must've...
This past election there was a lot of energy created in the choice by John McCain to have Sarah Palin as his running mate. What do you feel was the reason for this choice and how do you think she was qualified to...
