The National Enquirer has exposed a Sarah Palin scandal that, if true, threatens to derail the McCain/Palin campaign. According to the Enquirer, Palin cheated on her husband Tom with Todd’s former business partner, Brad Hanson, who at the time was a married man.

Hanson owned a snowmobile dealership with Palin’s husband Todd, who angrily dissolved the partnership after he heard about the affair, which occurred around 1996.

Hanson denies ever having an affair with the 44-year-old candidate, but his family members say otherwise:

Hanson family insider, Jim Burdett, has gone on the record and passed a rigorous polygraph test.

"I've known about Brad having had an affair for a long time, but it wasn't until just recently that I learned his affair was with Sarah Palin," Burdett told The National Enquirer.

"Todd found out about the affair and was so mad he broke up their partnership at the snowmobile dealership," Burdett claimed. (Source)

  • Anna

    It has been stated months ago she had an affair with her husbands best friend. Not a Palin fan but if she were a guy would this make it more ok?

  • DivaMama

    Good Morning All!

    I heard this before and not from the Enquirer, so there may be some truth to this. All we can do is see how this pans out. Doesn't matter, I'm not voting for them anyway.

  • mj

    The National Enquirer has grown its credibility over time. They are after all the ones that first said John Edwards was cheating and a year later after denying it - John Edwards had to come out and admit the truth. He cheated and so did Sarah Palin I bet.

  • DivaMama

    "...I will GLADLY accept your, food (stamps), money, and gas cards."

    LOL @ prynsexx, I'm with you! Gimme the gas cards first, hell, get me some GAS!!!

  • starr

    Is this the man that had his divorced record sealed just as sarah was named vp.

    And the enquirer was right about Edwards, so why can't they be right about this.

    Sara Palin needs her hair done. She rocks it like a mormon woman.

    CNN) — McCain supporter Sen. Lindsey Graham tells CNN the McCain campaign is proposing to the Presidential Debate Commission and the Obama camp that if there's no bailout deal by Friday, the first presidential debate should take the place of the VP debate, currently scheduled for next Thursday, October 2 in St. Louis.

    In this scenario, the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin would be rescheduled for a date yet to be determined, and take place in Oxford, Mississippi, currently slated to be the site of the first presidential faceoff this Friday.

    Graham says the McCain camp is well aware of the position of the Obama campaign and the debate commission that the debate should go on as planned — but both he and another senior McCain adviser insist the Republican nominee will not go to the debate Friday if there's no deal on the bailout.

    I think that there is truth to this. I was reading about this one day from another source and the article contained a link to their small town's public records office.

    The link took you directly to the emergency petition filed on 9/3/08 to have the divorce records sealed for Brad Hanson - the guy she was creeping with.

    The petition was denied on 9/4.

  • Mississippi16

    Why does a person who's been divorced a year and a half need to SUDDENLY file an emergency petition to seal records a week after his JUMPOFF is nominated for VP.

    Uhhhh, yeah Sandra. You are late...I heard this when she FIRST got selected and I DIDN'T hear if from the National Enquirer either.

  • Bird

    I would feel bad for the Republicans if it wasn't for the fact that they nominated this joke of a ticket. I hope McCain keeps the silly stunts coming. He's throwing away votes. As for this Palin chick, she just gets worse by the minute.

  • 2bme

    It doesn't matter racism trumps adultery every the feminist groups are still mad Barack didn't pick Hillary so they are willing to ignore everything Palin stands for just to get her clueless behind in the white house..The National Enquirer wasted tremendous effort

  • Coop


    The Enquirer is the publication that broke the John Edwards story and it turned out to be true.

  • Bird

    Oh yeah let me not forget to mention that I saw a McCain ad during Today this morning. Isn't his campaign supposed to be suspended? When exactly does that start. Pure slime.

  • kwallace577

    @21 actually the newspaper in raleigh, nc knew about john edwards for a looong time...but out of respect we decided not to make it public. we are still catching flack about that too.

    but you are right the enquirer broke the story. they have no scruples. or the need to be loyal.

  • terika83

    @black, you just TOTALLY turned my view around on McCain copping out of the debate Friday. I thought he was trying to buy more time for himself...he's just trying to buy more time for PALIN! They think we are stupid....anyone who falls for their shenanigans are FOOLS!

  • stefany


  • Kymystry

    @ dblaq .. i stand (well i'm seated) .. I stand corrected :-)

  • kwallace577

    @stefany i feel you. but i sure wish WHOEVER gonna break the story (enquirer, anchorage or fairbanks newspaper...i don't care) hurry the hell UP!!

    time is a wastin'....

  • katgirl33

    Ok y'all....the Enquirer has been known to come out with some TRUE shyt....occasionally.....LOL

    Since Edwards came clean about messin round on his wife, Clinton, and countless others, I believe she probably did pull a creep move on fella.....

    Is it me, or does her husband look like an older Robin Thicke?

  • katgirl33

    OOH Terika & Black Beauty!

    I said the same thing this morning! Mc Cain is not ready to tell us what he plans to do with the crisis if he becomes President----BECAUSE HE DON'T KNOW----that's why he trying to back out. They should already have ideas on how to handle the problem....this shyt didn't just happen yesterday, been simmering for years....

    I actually commend President Bush for having McCain and Obama with him to discuss the plan, b/c one of them is going to have to deal directly with the situation in a few months......

    I don't think there is need to cancel the debate...we need to know what they each plan to do about this (and other issues) if/when they get in there.....

    I think McCain is punking out to make sure they got their shyt together/get some shyt on Obama...

    Cause he know his shyt is about to be dragged all thru the mud, in front of America.....or Palin den made a phone call:

    "Hey Baby, the public is about to find out about our thang! Yo biytach (the ex-wife) dropped dime to the judge when y'all got a divorce, so you need to get that shyt taken care of!"

    Guy: "Okay Baby. When I'mma see you/"

    Palin: "I don't know, I'll get back with you later. Gotta go," (blows kiss to him over phone)

    ((Hangs up abruptly as Mr. Palin enters room))


    this is kinda old news. it's true they say, even before the Enquirer "spilled" it.

    hey sandra why won't you post the video i sent you of the young african american boy claiming to be the REAL father of sarah palin's pregnant teenage daughter, bristol? the young man says that sarah doesn't want the kid to help raise the child and are pretending that bristol's current white boyfriend is the real father. i guess we'll see what happens when the child is born and looks half black.

    but now is a great time to post such a video since we see so many holes, lies, and discrepencies in the mccain/palin campaign.


    i do agree however with one thing, IF this were a MAN vp, then no one would barely blink an eye about the cheating unless it was done on the same scale as Bill Clinton. then people look and pay attention to a man cheating who is in office or running for office bcz Bill was just plain old messy about it.

    i say the same degree of attention and fault should go to man and woman equally who cheat on their AND out of politics ye heard!

  • Krysi J

    Who cares....we already know what her and McCain are in this together for! Besides what republican doesn't cheat?

  • black beauty

    @terika83 and katgirl33

    I don't understand why he thinks "sitting" in on a meeting is much more important that 2 hrs out of the day for the debate! We need some answers from him and Sarah P. They can't hide from the media anymore

    Ok I want to liven the room up. Read the headline again and look at the pic. Which penis is she describing, her husbands or his best friend?

    you're late dear, aunty san posted the story and video from the potential baby daddy. check the archives :)

  • brdnbutta

    I read about this earlier on a site. I actually think it might have been newsweek who was mentioning the national inquirer and how they have been pulling legitimate "trasy" stories that the mainstream media are reluctant to cover.
    Anyways someone over at the enquirer camp needs to pay a court clerk some serious money to get those divorce documents secretly scanned and posted for public review.
