The book claims that Palin had sex with Rice during a college basketball tournament in Alaska in 1987 while Rice was playing for Michigan, and Palin was a sports reporter for a TV station in Alaska.
The National Enquirer reports:
A publishing source told The ENQUIRER that McGinniss claims Sarah had a “fetish” for black men at the time and he quotes a friend as saying Sarah had “hauled (Rice’s) ass down.”
A source unrelated to the book told The ENQUIRER, Todd was very much in the picture at the time and the couple married just nine months later.
In the book, McGinniss quotes Rice as confirming the one-night stand.
