UPDATE Sarah Palin To Be Divorced?

This is why a complete vetting process of Sarah Palin needed to be undertaken by the John McCain campaign.  The voting public needs to know what type of person is asking for the power to run the nation.  There is NO WAY that a proper and complete vetting of Palin was done, so how can we trust McCain to properly vet cabinet members, or those who wish to sit on the Supreme Court?

As my readers know I do not cotton to the notion of breaking marriage vows.  Period. As I have said here on this blog even liberals like myself can be prudes…..and I am fine with that label. 

From The Dallas Morning News

John McCain‘s campaign is denying a tabloid report that vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin had an extramarital affair. “It’s a vicious lie,” spokesman Steve Schmidtsaid. The campaign is considering legal action, Mr. Schmidt added. The National Enquirer reported that Ms. Palin had an affair with a business associate of her husband, Todd. Mr. Palin discovered the infidelity and dissolved the business, the article said. It attributed the allegation only to “an enemy” of the Alaska governor. “The smearing of the Palin family must end,” Mr. Schmidt said in a prepared statement.

A former journalist and dog musher had this on Alaska Abroad.

My sources in Alaska say the incident occurred in mid 1990s, right around the time she became mayor of Wasilla. Todd Palin’s partner in a Polaris snowmachine dealership in Wasilla, Brad Hanson Hampton, and Sarah were reportedly flirtatious and but never consummated the relationship.

So on many levels I am disgusted with the stories that are everywhere today about the alledged affair that Sarah Palin was to have been involved with.

On the heels of their outing John Edwards’ affair, the National Enquirer is sticking by claims that Republican vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin cheated on her husband Todd with his former business partner.

Now, Andrew Sullivan over at The Atlantic is claiming the rumored beau’s legal team has filed an emergency order to have his divorce records sealed.

The rumored affair was part of a more intensive cover story which claimed, among other things, that Palin initially tried to cover up daughter Bristol’s pregnancy. Palin announced two days after accepting the nomination to run alongside John McCain that her 17-year-old daughter is five months pregnant.

The National Enquirer was the one that sealed the last nail in John Edwards’ political career.  As a strong supporter of Edwards, I found his actions horrible, and I said so.

Likewise, while I hope that these rumors are found to be false about Plain, as the institution of marriage is far more important to me than politics, there are some issues that lead me to think there is more here than we want to think true.

The ex-business partner to Sarah Palin’s husband filed a motion to have his divorce papers sealed after the news broke about the alleged affair.  A strange time to make such a request, at least that is how it seemed to this former news reporter.  Others also thought this strange.

The Enquirer’s own anonymous source claims: “Todd discovered the affair and quickly dissolved his friendship and business associations with the guy. Many people in Alaska are talking about the rumour and say Todd swept it under the rug.”

The man at the center of the campaign, according to Alaskan Abroad, the blog of an Alaskan journalist, reports that the allegation refers to the time when Palin became mayor of Wasilla in the mid-1990s.

Palin’s husband Todd owned a snowmobile dealership with his business partner Brad Hanson. Apparently Hanson, who was also married, and Sarah got on famously; Alaskan Abroad’s sources say the two were “flirtatious but never consummated the relationship”.

“When Todd found out, he reportedly dissolved the partnership and sold the dealership. Hanson is now a member of the Palmer City Council.”

Brad Hanson is currently a city council member in Palmer, Alaska.

The McCain campaign has gone on record as saying the “affair story” is nothing more than a “vicious lie”.

The latest news from Alaska is that Sarah Palin’s name does not seem to appear in the divorce papers.  We can only hope that more evidence comes to light to prove that this affair never took place.  However, many are sticking to their stories, and so we will just have to wait and listen.  But once a rumor starts, such as saying a Christian candidate for office is a Muslim….well….it can be hard to put the toothpaste back into the tube.

…the 98-page file shows that the Palins are only mentioned in Richter’s sealing request. According to the filing, Richter wanted the documents deemed confidential in a bid to cloak details about his home, workplace, and phone numbers because “reporters and news agencies” were using that information to contact him. Richter, a 39-year-old contractor, noted that he is “friends and land owners in a remote cabin” with the Palins and, as a result, journalists were intruding on the “cabin life and private life” of him and his 11-year-old son. The petition to dissolve the marriage was filed jointly last July by Richter and his ex-wife, who were not represented by lawyers. A judge granted the dissolution less than two months after the couple filed to end their marriage.

    The “institution” of marriage is not anywhere near as important as politics — your marriage is probably more important to you than politics, but it means absolutely nothing to me. I’m guessing vice versa, eh? Guy girl or dog, it could not mean less to me.

    That said, why would you post this crap? Just because the blind squirrel found out your boy Edwards is a scumbag doesn’t make them credible-seriously, are there aliens among us? If you don’t care for Sarah Palin (and I don’t by the way) do the research. Don’t cut and paste crap rumors that aren’t even important- even if, against all your “hope”,they aren’t true (she had an affair in her 20’s- why would I care? cuz she’s not Bill Clinton?).

    She’s inexperienced, kind of a religious nut, pathological liar (see Bridge to Nowhere), and a self proclaimed hockey mom (yes that’s an insult). And she likes guns, which is no longer cool is a VP. I don’t care if she’s a slut, I don’t care if her daughter’s a slut, and don’t care about Mr. or Mrs. Rivers.

    I just love the left. They know the obama train has been derailed by a strong conservative women and all they have left is try to discredit her with cheap stories, lies and distortions. Again this is very typical of the left it is how they live their lives. Don’t be surprised in the next couple of weeks Biden has to withdraw as VP due to “personal” issues. They need to do something to save their campaign and their only hope is hope some of the lies stick with people or Hillary gets on the ticket. They are DOOMED!

    Hockey mom is an INSULT! In what world? Just laughable how desperate.

    “What’s the difference between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama?”

    “One is a well turned-out, good-looking, and let’s be honest, pretty sexy piece of eye-candy.

    “The other kills her own food.”

  4. It’s commonly known that John McCain began his relationship wiyh now-wife Cindy while he was still married to his first. Everybody knows it but apparently nobody cares. I wouldn’t count on a long ago affair to make the righties lose interest in their new star.
    Much as I might hope. Haven’t you heard? It’s okay if you’re a Republican.

  5. Why don’t you folks get your minds out of the mud? Stop slinging salacious and unfounded accusations at Mrs. Palin, and start debating meaningful policy differences. Just because she’s a woman doesn’t mean the only political news about her has to be about sex. Can’t a woman candidate be considered seriously on the basis of her policy views, as a man would be? Come on folks, this is ridiculous. Enough with the sexism already.

  6. For the love of Pete! Look at Clinton! Look at Kennedy! Look at your own house before throwing stones. I doubt any one of us could stand the media’s penchant for digging up dirt. And who hasn’t flirted with someone other than their spouse in their live. As for guns, she not only can bag the meat, she cooks it and serves it to her family. A real woman!

    I personally couldn’t care less about her personal life. Her skill as a manager and leader are far more important to me.
    Don’t care about her daughter’s pregnancy, or her dress color (or size) or who the hell she sleep/slept with.

    As usual the Republicians have officially one-upped us and I think they have us beat, yet again.
