Frank Bailey, a former member of Sarah Palin's inner circle, has written a scathing tell-all book about the former Alaska governor turned professional celebrity.
Among many other things, he says Palin was ready to quit as governor months before she resigned and was eager to leave office for more lucrative options.
"In 2009 I had the sense if she made it to the White House and I had stayed silent, I could never forgive myself," Frank Bailey told The Associated Press.
Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years, due out Tuesday, is based on thousands of emails Bailey kept during his time with Palin.
It began with working on her 2006 gubernatorial campaign and continued through a failed run for vice president in 2008 and her brief stint as governor.
The Alaska attorney general's office has said it's investigating Bailey's use of emails and whether executive ethics laws bar him from profiting from them.
In any case, Blind Allegiance bolsters the perception of Sarah Palin as self-serving, casting Bailey as her enforcer - doing the dirty work, no questions asked.
