Palin Affair Rumor Probably False

Posted in 2008 Election, Politics, Sarah Palin by Stacy McMahon on September 7, 2008

From TSG, via Andrew Sullivan who is still the all Palin-bashing, all the time blog. This is in reference to the Enquirer accusation that Sarah Palin had an affair with a business associate of her husband some years ago. The same man just tried (and failed) to have the court seal the records of his divorce, which apparently happened around the same time. The real explanation is exactly what I thought it would be:

According to the filing, Richter wanted the documents deemed confidential in a bid to cloak details about his home, workplace, and phone numbers because “reporters and news agencies” were using that information to contact him. Richter, a 39-year-old contractor, noted that he is “friends and land owners in a remote cabin” with the Palins and, as a result, journalists were intruding on the “cabin life and private life” of him and his 11-year-old son.

So the guy wanted to hide his dirty laundry because reporters were ransacking his life to try and smear his friend. Imagine that. Sullivan and others like to act as though the GOP is crazy to campaign against the press, but part of the overall problem is that Sullivan thinks this is the press “doing its job”. People not members of the press don’t think its job includes trashing everyone in sight to serve a political agenda, and they’re sick of it. The MSM is more hated than Congress or lawyers, and if they keep acting like they have a ___-given right to run roughshod over the denizens of flyover country for any reason or none, they may well bring on a reaction that won’t be good for anyone.
