BOMBSHELL! Mama Grifter’s husband, Todd Palin, is caught in a sleazy sex scandal with a female massage therapist who was subsequently busted for prostitution.
The National Enquirer broke the sordid sex story which has the potential to further sabotage his wife, Sarah Palin’s possible 2012 presidential bid, but also threatens to destroy her marriage, this according to sources.
Sarah Palin, the one time mayor of the tiny meth capital of Wasilla, AK, and the one time governor of Alaska, who quit the job mid-term to chase pots of gold dangled in-front of her from book publishers and FOX News, after Sen. John McCain plucked Palin from utter obscurity to be his 2008 vice presidential running mate
But Palin’s brand has come under fire of late after 18 people were shot at a political event in Tucson, AZ just two weeks ago. One of the shooting victims was Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, one of twenty democrats Palin targeted for defeat by placing a rifle crosshairs over their respective districts.
The National Enquirer says it uncovered official documents confirming Todd Palin’s extramarital affair with the massage therapist, identified as Shailey Tripp, allegations of his affair surfaced on Jan. 4 when an anonymous tipster sent out messages to news outlets making the allegation using the e-mail address email@example.com.
This is not the first time the National Enquirer broke the news of an affair involving a high profile politician. In 2008, the tabloid broke the story of an affair between John Edwards and filmmaker Rielle Hunter. Mainstream news sources dismissed the story was untrue but, within weeks of the story’s publication, John Edwards dropped his bid for the presidency.
Sources told the National Enquirer that Shirley Tripp had an affair with Todd Palin that lead to her arrest March of 2010. According to tenants in the building where Tripp performed massages, Todd was often a frequent visitor. They reported hearing noises that sounded like people having sex. It was the same tenants who called the police on Ms. Tripp.
An investigation confirmed Tripp, 36, was arrested on March 4, 2010 in Anchorage and charged with maintaining a house of prostitution.
