Joe McGinniss' 'The Rogue' Alleges Sarah Palin Affair: Here Are 5 Other Rumors

Joe McGinniss, the man who famously moved in next door to Sarah and Todd Palin in Wasilla, Alaska, is set to release a scathing (and apparently thinly sourced) biography of the former First Lady of Alaska later this month--and he's adding a few more rumors of infidelity to the mill.

According to the National Enquirer, McGinniss's book alleges that Sarah had an affair with her husband's former business partner, Brad Hanson, in the 1990's (the Enquirer was first to break that story three years ago).

The book also reportedly accuses Palin of a tryst with NBA player Glen Rice less than a year before her marriage to Todd. Although The New York Times review of McGinniss's book doesn't mention the encounter, reviewer Janet Maslin pulls this choice quote from The Rogue: "A friend says, 'Sarah and her sisters had a fetish for black guys for a while.'"

This isn't the first time the Palin marriage has come under scrutiny (and it's certainly not the first time the National Enquirer has blasted the tall tales). Click through the slideshow below for five other relationship rumors.
