The National Enquirer broke the story that Todd Palin had paid Shailey Tripp for sex.
It was Shailey Tripp, the person most knowledgeable about the encounter(s), that reported the information. Thus she was not reporting what someone told her. She was not insinuating that she had sex with Todd. She said she DID! To this day Todd, the only other person with personal knowledge of the relationship, has not denied the relationship. It was Sarah Palin who said:
It was “just guilt by innuendo, nothing else.”
“Heck, all they had to do was ask me or ask Todd himself, ‘Hey Todd, you been hanging out with hookers in Anchorage?’ and he’d tell the truth.”
I asked him, but never got an answer. Maybe he was afraid to answer for fear that he would feel compelled to tell the truth?
Dave Parker of the Anchorage Police Department said:
“”It was just guilt by innuendo, nothing else,”
Now, Joe McGinnis’ book is being discussed in multiple articles on the internet, referencing a sleep-over Sarah had with Glen Rice. It was not Sarah or Glen Rice who refudiated this claim, but instead Todd Palin. He said:
“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,”
Todd, not Sarah, released this formal statement which again used the word “innuendo”:
“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. He traffics in innuendo and falsehoods.
It must have been humiliating for Sarah to defend Todd, so that Todd wouldn’t have to lie about his relationship with Shailey Tripp. Likewise, when Todd was asked to deny Sarah’s sexual adventures, he must have been humiliated too. Payback’s a Bitch.
The only innuendo in each statement was the suggestion that Todd and Sarah had NOT had affairs. The innuendo is “payback’s a bitch” (the female dog kind).
