The First Dude implicated in a sex scandal?! Who would have guessed.
The National Enquirer, N.Y. Daily News, Gawker, Yahoo News, Vanity Fair and other sources report that Todd Palin, the husband of Sarah, has been linked to a female massage therapist, Shailey Tripp, who was recently busted for prostitution.
Police have confiscated physical evidence in Tripp's arrest, according to reports, that could tie Todd Palin to the alleged extramarital affair.
TRIPPED UP: Will this story have an unhappy ending for the First Dude?
Hilariously, reports suggest that Shailey Tripp contributed free massages to an anonymous person working for Sarah's campaign for Governor of Alaska.
Reps for the Dude vehemently deny that he cheated on Sarah Palin, but allegations of Toddles' extramarital affair with Tripp first surfaced on January 4.
That's when an anonymous tipster sent out messages to news outlets making the allegation using the address thepalinmorals (at) hotmail (dot) com."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," claimed the anonymous Deep Throat (har har) via e-mail.
"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."
Shailey Tripp was in fact arrested on March 4 of last year in Anchorage and charged with maintaining a house of prostitution. She pleaded no contest on June 13 of last year with sentencing set for June 15 of this year.
She must complete 80 hours of volunteer service, not post ads on CraigsList and pay a fine of $500. If she meets these conditions, Tripp can withdraw her no contest plea at the sentencing hearing and the case will be dismissed.
So far, there is little evidence of Todd Palin tagging that, but there appears to be at least some loose connection to the First Dude. If there was hanky panky going on, Dude's gonna end up in Sarah's crosshairs map all by his lonesome.
Stay tuned ...
