Sarah Palin's husband Todd attacks biography


.
News broke Wednesday that a new book about Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and possible 2012 presidential candidate, is coming out soon, and it paints a less-than-flattering picture of her life before she was governor, including allegations of cocaine use and extramarital affairs.


Sarah's husband Todd Palin has fired back at author Joe McGinniss in a statement:


"This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in right next door to us to harass us and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife. His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears. Even The New York Times called this book 'dated, petty,' and that it 'chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.'"


Excerpts from the book, due out next week, were first published in the National Enquirer.

In a statement, Todd Palin said the book was full of "lies" and "smears", and accused Mr McGinniss of being obsessed with his wife, according to ABC News.


"This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in right next door to us to harass us and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife," he said via a Sarah Palin campaign aide, the network reported.


"His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears. Even The New York Times called this book 'dated, petty,' and that it 'chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip."


According to US media reports, the book claims Mrs Palin had a six-month affair in the 1990s with Brad Hanson, Todd Palin's business partner at the Polaris snowmobile store in Big Lake.


Mrs Palin has previously denied the allegation.


Mrs Palin also allegedly had a fling with former NBA player Glen Rice in 1987 when he was in Alaska for a basketball tournament, a year before she eloped with Todd, the book says.


At the time, the young Sarah Heath was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU.


It also alleges that the former former Republican vice-presidential candidate snorted cocaine off a 55-gallon drum while on a snowmobiling trip with friends, and smoked marijuana with a professor at Mat-Su College in Alaska.


Mr McGinniss is known for his 1968 book on Richard Nixon, The Selling of the President.
