Todd Palin was a vicious flirt who spied on naked girls, even while married to Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, a new book asserts.
In the book -- titled The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, written by Joe McGinniss and due out Tuesday -- a woman in Todd Palin's hometown of Dillingham, Alaska said that Todd hit on me constantly in the mid-1990s.
McGinniss interviewed the woman, who said she used to hang around the local fishermen during the summers, one of whom was married to Wasilla politician Sarah Palin.
During summer, the fishing season, Todd was out there, and they'd all flirt with me. I'd probably flirt back, the attractive white woman, told McGinnis.
One day... Todd was in his old Ford truck with a boat hooked up to the back, and he was like, 'Come here.' I had on these overalls with a bikini top, and he said 'I hear lots about you.' Then he said 'Turn around,' and I said, 'What?' and he said 'I hear you got a great heart-shaped ass' and 'Aren't you just adorable?'
If that wasn't enough, the woman retells another conversation between Todd Palin and herself, in which the fisherman and snow mobile enthusiast implied that he's been secretly looking at her while she changed her clothes.
One day Todd made a comment about my nipples being pink, she noted I said, 'You've never seen me naked,' and he said, 'Well, maybe there's a peephole.' Todd and his friends had been peepin' on us for months. And he wasn't some horny teenager; he was a grown and married man.
The Rogue paints Sarah Palin, once a candidate for the vice-president of the United States, in an even more negative light. McGinnis asserts that Palin had an extra-marital affair with one of her husband's business partners, and also had a tryst ex-NBA player Glen Rice.
The book also says that Palin and her husband used cocaine up until she decided to run for governor, and there is a scene in The Rogue in which Palin snorts cocaine off an overturned 55-gallon oil drum while snowmobiling with pals, according to the National Enquirer.
To research his book, McGinniss rented a house next door to Palin's and interviewed her old Wasilla, Alaska associates.
