Sarah Palin denies affair with hubbys business partnerSeptember 25th, 2008 - 12:42 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept 25 (ANI): Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has dismissed claims that she had an affair with her husband Todds business partner.
According to the National Enquirer, Palin had an affair with Todds snowmobile dealership partner Brad Hanson, reports the Sun.
However, the Alaska governor has furiously denied claims that she cheated on Todd, dubbed the First Dude, in 1996.
The National Enquirer said that the affair took place when Palin was mayor of hometown Wasilla and started because she was lonely while Todd was away working on oilfields.
And the fling ended when Palin, 44, confessed to furious Todd, according to the magazine.
Now, Republican John McCains campaign has threatened legal action over the vicious lie.
The magazine quoted convicted thief Jim Burdett, a relative of Hansons wife, and said to have passed a lie detector test.
However, Hanson, 46, said: I never had an affair of any kind with Sarah Palin. Todd and I are friends.
The story has reportedly been spread by Palins political rivals.
McCain senior adviser Steve Schmidt said: The smearing of the Palins must end. (ANI)
