The National Enquirer is reporting that Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd Palin, has had an affair with a female massage therapist, Shailey Tripp, who has been “busted for prostitution.” Shailey Tripp, 36, was reportedly arrested on March 4, 2010 in Anchorage and charged with maintaining a house of prostitution. The Enquirer claims it has uncovered official documents showing Shailey Tripp was arrested and that cops have confiscated physical evidence that could tie Todd to the alleged extramarital affair.
The tabloid did not disclose when the alleged rendezvous took place or what evidence was seized by police. The allegations of Palin’s extramarital affair surfaced on Jan. 4 when an anonymous tipster sent out an email to several news outlets. “My sources reveal that a massage therapist and computer technologist, SHAILEY TRIPP, had an affair with Todd Palin that lead (sic) to her arrest March of 2010,” claimed the anonymous e-mail. According to the tenants in the building of her offices, they saw Todd come and go often and heard noises that sounded like someone was having sex. It was the same tenants who called the police on her.”
The Enquirer also unearthed documents showing Shailey Tripp contributed free massages to an anonymous person working for Sarah’s campaign for Governor of Alaska. Was Todd Palin simply getting a free massage or doing things he should not be doing behind his wife’s back? The Palins have not yet commented on the scandal.
