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)
