According to the National Enquirer, there is an odd Sarah Palin tidbit in an upcoming book written by Joe McGinness, the investigative reporter who moved next door to the Republican Vice Presidential candidate.
Apparently, Sarah Palin had an interracial one night stand with former NBA star Glen Rice back in 1987, a year before she married her husband, Todd. And before you write this off as just a rumor, you should know that Rice has confirmed this story to McGinness. The encounter occurred while Palin was a sports reporter fresh out of college. Rice was in Alaska for a college basketball tournament. Palin has yet to comment on this. Here are the details, courtesy of the National Enquirer.
“In the book, which will be published on September 20th, 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, the book says. At the time, Sarah, just out of college, was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU.
A publishing source told The ENQUIRER that McGinniss claims Sarah had a “fetish” for black men at the time and he quotes a friend as saying Sarah had “hauled (Rice’s) ass down.”
Try getting all that out of your head. This author apologizes for any trauma you may have just experienced by reading this.
