Shocking New Expose On Sarah Palin Not All That Shocking

Joe McGinnis, the “journalist” who made headlines when he moved in next door to the Palin family in Wasilla in order to spy on them, has released his book. Here’s one of the oh-so-shocking revelations made therein, courtesy of the National Enquirer.

McGinniss claims Sarah had a steamy interracial hookup with basketball stud GLEN RICE less than a year before she eloped with her husband Todd.

Sarah hooked up with the NBA great, then a 6-foot-8 junior at the University of Michigan when he was playing in a college basketball tournament in Alaska in 1987 … at the time, Sarah, just out of college, was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU.

So a single girl had sex with a single guy more than 20 years ago. I’m, uh, shocked or something. Presuming it even happened, which given McGinnis’ track record it probably didn’t.

I have my own history with Mr. McGinnis. I have no idea if this actually made it into the book, but McGinnis contacted me in 2010 while he was trying to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin’s father Chuck Heath. Back in the 1980′s Heath was a teacher/coach in the Wasilla public school system at the same time a teacher by the name of Walter Koenig was arrested for molesting several girls, one of them my sister. The revelation of Koenig’s crimes came at the time that public schools in Alaska were being rocked with revelation after revelation of molestation.

My father, an Alaska State Trooper at the time, investigated these cases though once it became clear that my sister was involved in Koenig’s case he handed it off to another investigator.

Regardless, Koenig confessed his crimes and was convicted. At the time, though, there was a scandal in the community over the firing of a school principal to whom students had complained about Koenig. The principal, who later regretted his decision for obvious reasons, didn’t take their complaints seriously. At the time there were no mandatory reporting laws in Alaska requiring teachers, etc. to report complaints of abuse to law enforcement. My father investigated the matter and ultimately found that no laws had been broken.

Regardless, the school superintendent still chose to fire the principal. This caused some uproar in the community as some, including Sarah Palin’s father Chuck Heath, felt that while the principal made a mistake it shouldn’t cost him his career. The controversy escalated to the point where the superintendent reported having his tires slashed, though ultimately after my father investigated that incident it turned out that the superintendent had slashed his own tires so he could get new winter tires at the expense of his insurance company (my father arrested him for the crime).

McGinniss’ angle was to attempt to make Chuck Heath out to be some sort of apologist for a sex predator. That wasn’t the case at all. Heath simply felt that the decision to fire the principal was wrong. A debatable position (my family certainly disagreed), but hardly one that reflects on Heath’s character. Indeed, my family and the Heaths/Palins remain friends to this day.

My response to McGinniss was to politely decline to comment on the matter, saying that it was a long-dead issue with no bearing on Sarah Palin or her political career (she was in high school at the time) and that my family considers the Heaths/Palins to be fine people and friends. In response, McGinnis sent me another email with a concocted narrative making Chuck Heath out to be some sort of enabler of pedophilia and my father as someone willing to tolerate it even as his own daughter was victimized. McGinniss told me that if I didn’t share my version of the story, this was the version he’d have to run with.

I never responded to the threat, and maybe McGinnis ran with it or maybe he didn’t. I’m not giving him the satisfaction of buying his book to find out.

The moral of the story, though, is that McGinnis is a slime ball.

Here’s a PDF of my email exchange with him:

            Where is the hypocracy?  Is Palin expected to be perfect?  Can she not learn from her own mistakes?  How many of our young women today would sleep with a popular athelete if given the chance?  And how many of them would go on to mature and decide that having unmarried sex was not in a young person’s best interest?  Hypocracy thy name is Democrat!
            If she has sex with him, it is her own business, not ours.
            If she did not, as I suspect, McGinnis should be hung out to dry for all his lies.

            I highly doubt this “one night stand” even occurred, but even if it did.  How she acted as a young woman at 24 has no bearing on what she believes and supports today.

            I know a former prostitute that works to get girls off the street and back in school.  She’s a tireless champion for these women.

            You would see her as a hypocrite because in your warped mind, since she was a prostitute for 15 years, she can’t have a voice against the practice.

            I see her as a hero.

            She lived the life, saw how shallow and destructive it was, and now she seeks to prevent other girls from being caught up in that horrible lifestyle.

            The point is whether it be promiscuity, a former alcoholic, a former drug user, a former prostitute, or even a former thief, that person can still be an advocate against such things and actually their life experience has more weight behind their opposition.

            Why give McGuinness any credibility? He has an infamous past in plagiarism, deception,  lying, duplicity and fictional biographies of persons who ultimately sued him.  Sarah and Todd have set the example for a loving, faith centered marriage and family for at least the last 25 years. Why doubt the relationship now? Don’t give this proven scum bag any credibility. They tried the same tactic on McCain with the blonde associate and quite recently, they tried to make something about Todd getting a massage. These people know that sex sells and gets immediate attention.

          • lidia17

            Yet Sarah had an affair with Brad Hanson, and Todd visited prostitutes. The Palins have never denied these reports nor sued the Enquirer which reported them (as it reported on John Edwards).

            What’s the point of pretending the Palins have a “loving faith-centered marriage”??

            At this point, such code words virtually guarantee adultery and worse, as in the case above defending Chuck Heath and his pedophile friends.

            Maybe it’s just a sexual obsession he has for  a white woman who probably interviewed him 27 years ago.This very troubled out of work washed up one-time basketball dribbler is looking to be noticed again. It’s not too difficult to believe he has always voted the Democratic ideological line. He is not to be believed. It was spread by some jealous spiteful bitch in Alaska. If Rice wants to play that game, he’s fair game and his private life and family will be open to inspection and investigation. The skeletons will come out of the closet in record time.

      • grkorbel

        As far as I could tell, Rice never explicitly said he was intimate with Palin. Rice recalls Palin as being a “real sweetie” or some such thing and then going for the kill shot, McGinnis blindsides Rice with the question (not verbatim),

        So, Sarah Palin didn’t seem to feel bad about being with a black man.”–or something like that.

        There is no response from Rice, nor does he give any specifics. He merely uses the word “respectful”.

        As far as I can tell, Rice has yet to unambiguously say, “Yeah. It’s true. We had sex.” We have only been given a few snippets of conversation which terminats with a forced-choice question that Rice apparently doesn’t answer in the book.

        Rob Port’s documentation seems damning of McGinness insofar as it exhibits McGinnis is willing to create a “narrative” to support his theories with facts not in evidence.

        As an aside, it says mich about McGinness that he was throroughly spanked in court by Jeffrey McDonald, a former Green Beret and physician, who murdered his wife and two children and who sued McDonald (who entered into a contract to write McDonald’s story).McDonald sued McGinnis for fraud and breach of contract and the hung jury sided with Mcdonald 5-1.

        One can only imagine how repugnant the jury found McGinnis’ manipulation of a man who brutally
        murdered his family to bring back a verdict that even suggested even the perpertrator of one of the
        most sensational crimes of the 60’s deserved more than the loathsome tactics McGinnis used to
        get his story.

        To put it in perspective, imagine being sued by O.J. Simpson or Charlie Manson for fraud and having the court rule they were journalistically abused.

        A slimeball? Who knows but he does have a history of abhorrent tactics in pursuit of a story        

        McGinnis made his investigative bones with a book on Nixon and a sensational, if not, nauseatingly biased account of the McDonald murders. Subsequent investigation has debunked 
        McGinniss’s “drug theory” for Mcdonald’s alleged homicidal rage and, more reprehensible still,  establishes how McGinniss
        worked closely with his editor to delete references that might make “MacDonald
        look innocent.

        A final not about how predatory and Machiavellian Mcguinness can be: Asa journalist he is under no legal obligation to tell the truth, the whole truth etc. In “Fatal Vision” he could spin a compelling theory of the crime and connect the dots in whatever manner he pleased, Under oath, however, facing the penalty of purgery, McGinniss strangely was a bit less certain in the theory he created which seemed to provide the reason for McDonald’s homicidal spree. McGinniss, under oath, during the suit Mcdonald brought against McGinnis, the later was asked if he believed the theory he concocted in “Fatal Vision”–MacDonald flew into a homicidal rage because he was abusing diet drugs– McGinniss responded with one of the most incredible justifications, suggesting readers wanted more than the trial transcripts. They wanted authors “to write”. When pressed, he admitted, no, he was not certain his theory was sound or that Mcdonald flew into a homicidal rage.

        Maybe Rob has the McGuinness pegged. That sounds like something a dirtbag would do to sell a book–particularly if he detested his subject.

            Evidently the facts are NOT validated by the subjects themselves…and that is the whole problem with McGinnis book.  He claims things were said by a “friend”, he uses “sources say” and apparently even the whole accusation of an affair with Rice is not actually verified by Rice, it is merely insinuated by the questions the author asks of Rice.  The whole book is being trashed by both right and left leaning reviewers.  McGinnis is out to raise some bucks…and it hurts no one but you if you waste your hard earned money on it.

    I bet every racist douche GOP who has been swooning over her won’t be able to get it up for a month after this *shocker*.

    • footballchik1

      Did you read the part that said this was a year before she married?

    • Garym

      Here’s something new. A lefty calling conservatives racists. Gee Sparks, did it take you all day to come up with that one?

    • falling321

      ROFLMAO…. I know you don’t understand this, but conservatives intergrated long ago.  We happily and peacefully work together, party together, go to school together…heck, we marry and have beautiful bi-racial children together!  Not until the left stops keeping the race card in play in order to get elected, we will never see the end of racism!

    • cheeflo

      You mean Sarah Heath, single and 24 years old. She wasn’t married to Todd Palin until August 1988.

  • Bat One

    Interesting that the only ones making either a sexual or a racial issue of this unsubstantiated accusation are our oh-so-tolerant liberal snarks.  And this in defense of a multi-racial president (sort of) whose own history is charitably described as murky.

    • mikemc1970

      You know they can’t help it when their Palin Derangement Syndrome starts to act up.

    • Queequeg

      Interesting? Why, it’s down right hypocritical!
       
      Funny the epithets one is allowed to hurl at conservative women, Blacks, Gays, blue collar, etc, when they stray from the left wing plantation! 

      All the outrage over forbidden derogation is abandoned. And yet they dare cry hypocrisy…

      Clearly desperation is the hallmark of the democrat/Progressive/Socialist  as their party drove us off the rails upon taking power in January of 2009 and their president’s fecklessness has elevated Jimmy Carter into hall of fame material.

      Finally, it takes a real man to slap together such a screed. I remember when  the gutless McGinnis was wailing about how rude the people of Wasilla were to him and how they were like “The Nazis”…

      Dear Lord, it was a better place when one would pummel such a person for his own good.

      His past defines “murky.”

    • lastarza

      Are they to be reminded that Obama’s white mother was engaged in a sexual relationship with a black man of the Negro race in the early 60’s when such behavior was socially and culturally inappropriate and even unlawful in some states?

  • Dustin

    DIsgusting tactics of a slimeball.

    I’m sorry they tried to drag your family into it.  I guess you have to have incredibly thick skin if you don’t agree to play ball with slimeballs.

  • Carolport

    Mick. You forgot to add the E-mail where McGinnis says if your Dad didn’t cooperate he’d write what whatever he heard.

    • Guest

      You need to scroll down in the window with the PDF to see it.

      As for Sarah potentially hooking up with a star while single… have any of our erstwhile liberal commenters considered that perhaps she’s big on family values because her married life let her realize how shallow and harmful such an acts can be? 

      Some people LEARN from their experiences- and that’s not saying I believed it happened, I’m saying she may have learned from being married.

      • WOOF

        Learn what ?

  • Guest

    Notice how the anti-Palins are all extremely sexist in their posts? Champions of womens rights and dignity? What a joke.

    • Bat One

      Pretty much racist too!  Which is about what you’d expect.

  • Algoria

    Speaking of racism.

    McGinniss:
    “Palin isn’t comfortable in the presence of dark skinned people”.
    “Glen Rice, Sarah Palin had a one-night stand in ’87.”

    So which one is true? Probably neither but people who love lies will eat it up.

  • James_Cloninger

    “Back in the 1980′s Heath was a teacher/coach in the Wasilla public school system at the same time a teacher by the name of Walter Koenig…”

    (blink)

    Chekov?

  • Palinpower

    Oh, my! The Jews rejected Obama this week and the blacks are loving Sarah Palin. I think the Apocalypse is here.  Also to confirm story, Haitian rapper, Wyclef Jean today said he loves Sarah Palin cause she is for the people and he squabbles with his family/friends over it.
    Liberal heads exploding nationwide.

    • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

      And he gets publicity in the process…..imagine that.

  • Evelkneefb

    Hmmm, I personally didn’t read any threats from Mcginnis, or him being slimeballish.  He asked for info.  You politely declined.  And in the final exchange he fished one more time.  What exactly did he say that any other writer wouldn’t of said?  I didn’t see the big deal.   I didn’t like the part at the end about the sister, I thought that was creepy. Oh well.

    Face it.  Palin isn’t an Angel, and she stirs up plenty of shit.  McCain, after the election, then continual attacks on the left.  This battle between the left and right, digging up dirt, lies, it will continue until the American people wake up and get different parties.  This two party system sucks.

    I remember the big deal when Clinton was accused of smoking a joint.  It was all over the place.  And again when he was dipping his cigar into places, and christianing an interns dress. Clinton didn’t campaign or govern “pro family” anti pre-marital sex, anti drug.  He was just one of the guys.  I didn’t like him them nor did I vote for him.  But I like him now.

    The right runs on an anti drug, family values, anti gay, tough on crime agenda.  And it is great to see that they are people too.   How don’t you see the hypocrisy

    • D17

      “I didn’t like him them nor did I vote for him.  But I like him now.”

      That’s what a decade of drug use will do to you.

      Clinton is all about Clinton.  He never cared about you or anyone else.

      • lastarza

        Clinton is the biggest egotist who ever lived. Anybody from grade school on who makes it his goal in life to be President, has got to be a born sociopath. IMO that Obummer fits the same model.

    • DocEpador

      How close to:

      Gee that’s a pretty nice family you have there.  Shame if anything should happen to it if you don’t provide me some juicy tidbits.

      do you have to get to see the threats?  Reading comprehension goes beyond the words, the context here is pretty telling.  

    • robert108

      It’s an unproven accusation from an obama operative.  Why don’t you see the hypocrisy?
      Sarah doesn’t stir up anything; she has been the object of a left wing lying smear campaign since 2008.

      • AKRNC

        An Obama operative?  Are you really trying to pin this on him?  This man is everywhere according to the RWNJ’s, allegedly starting investigations on Palin for Troopergate months before she was picked for V.P. and he got a majority of Republicans to sign onto it!  Impressive skills he has.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_I52BSYWCC5KGEEDUMQKHGVRKKA Sayeret Golani

      I highly doubt this “one night stand” even occurred, but even if it
      did.  How she acted as a young woman at 24 has no bearing on what she
      believes and supports today.

      I know a former prostitute that works to get girls off the street and
      back in school.  She’s a tireless champion for these women.

      You would see her as a hypocrite because in your warped mind, since she
      was a prostitute for 15 years, she can’t have a voice against the
      practice.

      I see her as a hero.

      She lived the life, saw how shallow and destructive it was, and now she
      seeks to prevent other girls from being caught up in that horrible
      lifestyle.

      The point is whether it be promiscuity, a former alcoholic, a former
      drug user, a former prostitute, or even a former thief, that person can
      still be an advocate against such things and actually their life
      experience has more weight behind their opposition.

      • robert108

        I find it amazing that, after three years of unrelenting slime from the Dems, there is anything new they can throw at Sarah.  It’s almost as if they just thought of it…

        • lastarza

          Sarah and Todd were sweethearts from High School to this day. I can’t conceive of any break in their relationship and fidelity to each other at any time. Therefore, the story is tripe and not to be believed. Anyone with common knowledge and common sense can discern the truth from the untruth.

    • AKRNC

      I didn’t see a threat from McGinniss, either, as readers are led to believe.  He politely asked for info, when it was refused, he sent you the info he had been given in hopes that you or your father would either confirm or deny it on the record.  You chose not to, but I didn’t read anything nasty or what you call “slimy” in any of it.  I’ve seen our President accused of far worse without any proof to back it up.  There was no, “say this or else” in the email.  He was looking for another side to the story and was hoping you or your father would provide it.   

      Palin’s family pretends to be the happy, all-American family.  It’s not a line that’s holding up too well these days and after everything I’ve read, both pro and con, it seems they were your average family with just as many problems and in some cases, more, than many others.  However, when you’re running on family values and your Christianity, you’ve set the bar high, NOT us, but Palin set the bar. It was especially amusing to read what Bristol said about their inability to attend church because they’re just “too busy” to do so but she added that they know that God is on their side.  Hypocrisy?  Yes.  Surprising?  No.  The emails also weren’t quite the picture of a hard-working governor that her advisor claimed.  Instead, they showed a woman with a vindictive streak who thought nothing of cheating to get ahead whether it was rigging polls via their newly installed software acquired for that specific purpose or having letters written by Palin herself signed by supporters who lied about writing them at her request.  Not the person she wants us to believe she is and far from the leader we need.

    Dear Mr. McGinniss,
    I hope you have a good lawyer.

    • falling321

      Unfortunately, our laws make if very difficult for a public figure to press charges against those who slime them.  Apparently if you are a public figure, you are public game…especially if you are a political public figure.  Worse lies than this have been written about political figures and the writers get away with it.  In fact, McGinnis has gotten away with it himself in the past.

  • Evelkneefb

    Are you serious?   You think your example of an exprostitute helping current prostitutes and Sarah Palin running on a platform of social conservative/ christian/ family values, is the same thing.Your effing crazy.

    I’d vote for the ex prostitute for president, before the self proclaimed soccer mom, who snorted coke, banged a basketball player and cheated on her husband.  Plus the numerous other black smears on her record while in office(which are easy to find). Ones a hero, the other is a hypocrite.  If you can’t figure out which is what, your dumb.  I’m baffled.

    Someone help me out here, please…  Mr Port publishes an e-mail headed with the name George Koenig which Gmail says come from lucy lake and then claims it came from Joe McGinnis.  If Mr. Port really wanted to make Mr. McGinniss look bad he should have used a real e-mail from him – just sayin…

    • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

      It was a real email from him.  i’m not sure why he used the “lucy lake” email.

  • gahanson

    There are already close to 60 books about Palin in print.  There are tens of thousands of articles, and columns, and there are hundreds of hours of air time devoted to every aspect of her life, and that of her family.  How come evey one of these people missed this over the last 3 years.  We know for a fact that the day after Palin was announced as McCain’s VP running mate, the DNC dispatched at least 30 people to Alaska to dig up every piece of dirt they could get their hands on.  It sounds to me that McGinniss knew that his book would be just added to the list of books about Palin, so he needed to get something “new” about her, so he effectively just made something up.

    McGinniss is just another bottom feeder who would have gladly scuba dived into the Palins ceptic tank if he had gotton the opportunity.

  • lidia17

    Rob, did you ask your sister before deciding to reveal that she was molested as a child?

    Why would you defend Chuck Heath or the principal responsible for your sister’s safety, in this case?

    Please refresh everyone’s memory with what Ray Carter REALLY did:

    • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

      The principal was ultimately fired, which is what my family wanted.  My family disagreed with Mr. Heath on that issue, but don’t feel that disagreement rises to the level of him being a bad person.

    The “IMPRESSION” McGinnis got ????

    The Rogue’s biggest news nugget is McGinniss’s claim that when she was a young sports reporter for a local television station in 1987, Sarah had a one-night stand with basketball star Glen Rice, who is black.

    McGinniss speculates that they did the deed in a college dorm room in Anchorage or possibly a hotel. But when he actually interviewed the former Miami Heat star, he didn’t directly ask him if they had sex. Instead, McGinniss asked: “So you never had the feeling she felt bad about having sex with a black guy?” Rice’s reply: “No, no, no, nothing like that.”

    Despite the ambiguity of that response, McGinniss insists, “I think it’s pretty clear … That’s certainly the impression I came away with.” Rice didn’t respond to Newsweek’s request for comment.
