The National Enquirer recently released a bombshell accusation that Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, has been unfaithful to the former Governor of Alaska. Rumors are running rampant about an alleged sexual relationship between Palin and massage therapist Shailey Tripp. The scandal reportedly came to light in March when Tripp’s business was busted and she was arrested for “maintaining a house of prostitution.” The Enquirer has published documentation that they claim is part of the confiscation of physical evidence from the woman’s business.
They are reporting that it clearly links the husband of Sarah Palin to Tripp’s business establishment. They allege that it was a politically motivated anonymous tip that led police to Tripp — via e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org. The 36-year-old Wasilla resident was arrested on March 4, 2010 in Anchorage and charged with engaging in and operating a prostitution business. She pleaded no contest on June 13, 2010 and will be sentenced on June 15, 2011.
While the latest Enquirer exclusive will cause many to roll their eyes in disbelief, the mainstream media is jumping on the bandwagon — and for good reason. Who can forget that it was the Enquirer that broke the story of the extra-marital affair between John Edwards and Rielle Hunter and the existence of a love child.
