Todd Palin Affair? The Facts - Is This Evidence Credible?


Todd Palin

This might be a case of ‘much ado about nothing.’ Or maybe it’s just an attempt to sell more magazines. Whatever the reason, the evidence that Todd Palin – Mr. Sarah Palin to you – is having an affair with Shailey Tripp is pretty flimsy…for now.

The National Enquirer has had some luck breaking extra marital affair news. Their big scoop was uncovering the affair between John Edwards and Rielle Hunter. But they’ve also made some wacky claims like saying that Barack Obama had an affair but then soon made actions to retract their story.

What are their claims, their “facts” that Todd Palin is having an affair with a woman who has been busted for prostitution?

They got an anonymous tip from a anonymous email address (, who wrote: “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.” An anonymous email with no proof backing it up?

They also added that, “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.” Those “noises” led to her arrest on charges of prostitution.

This is all just a “teaser” from National Enquirer upcoming print issue, and maybe there is more evidence in their upcoming report? But as of now, it sounds like it’s just a way to sell more paper!
