"SARAH PALIN`s husband TODD is caught up in a sleazy sex scandal, The ENQUIRER has learned!
Political bloggers are digging into incredible claims that the `First Dude` - father of the couple`s five children - cheated on his wife with a female massage therapist who was busted for prostitution!
The scandal not only has the potential to sabotage Palin`s possible 2012 White House bid, but also threatens to destroy her marriage, sources say.
We have also uncovered documents that show the woman - identified by bloggers as Shailey Tripp - contributed free massages to an anonymous person working for Sarah`s campaign for governor of Alaska."
The National Enquirer
Until there`s physical evidence connecting "The First Dude" to Shailey Tripp this story is just a rumor. But it should be noted that the National Enquirer has a sterling reputation for breaking political scandals. From O.J to John Edwards, the Enquirer unearths scandals that other publications are too timid to cover.
Sarah Palin is an evangelical Christian who likes to present her family as a paragon of virtue, but she may have a philandering husband, and her teen daughter is an unwed mother. All that "family values" talk is politically-driven nonsense, Palin and her family are as randy as the average American family.
Some bloggers and pundits are predicting that if the rumors turn out to be true, that it will spell disaster for Sarah Palin`s presidential aspirations.
Baloney! Even if Todd had an orgy with twenty masseuses, Sarah`s devotees will stand by her side. This story will have zero effect on Sarah Palin`s political ambitions. Palin remains a prospective presidential candidate with a very serious problem: She seems unwilling or unable to expand her appeal beyond her loyal evangelical base.
