A highly anticipated biography of Sarah Palin alleges the Tea Party politician and former Republican vice presidential candidate used cocaine and marijuana, and had a long affair with her husband’s business partner.
The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin by the respected if controversial author, Joe McGinniss, claims Palin was seen snorting cocaine off the top of a 55-gallon drum while snowmobiling with friends. It also alleges she smoked marijuana with a professor while at Mat-Su College in Alaska.
The book, scheduled for release in the US next week, quotes a Palin family friend as alleging that Palin’s husband, Todd, also used cocaine and that he was “on the end of the straw plenty”.
