The ex-wife of a man said to have had an affair with Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin tells it's "absolutely, completely false."
"I can tell you this with 1,000 percent certainty, Sarah Palin never had an affair," said Debbie Richter when reached on Friday afternoon.
The rumor that her now ex-husband, Scott Richter, had an affair with Sarah Palin gained momentum after the National Enquirer reported she had been romantically involved with one of Todd Palin's former business associates.
The John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign threatened to sue over the story.
One celebrity news tabloid claims that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had an affair with a former business associate of Todd Palin. Seems like a bit of a stretch to us.

Meanwhile, other sources are saying that Brad Hanson is the man who the National Enquirer is going to break as Sarah's "secret affair."
Palin, the governor of Alaska and mother of five, became the first female nominated on a Republican presidential ticket last Friday.
Her life has been subject to intense scrutiny ever since - especially since on Monday, she announced her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol Palin, is five months pregnant with the child of her boyfriend, Levi Johnston.
