[A new book is making unworldly claims about the U.S. ex-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, claiming she had cheated on her husband, had a one night stand with a basketball star and has a history of drug use.
The upcoming book "The Rogue" by controversial author Joe McGinnis,due to hit shelves on Sept. 20, looks to uncover the "real Sarah Palin."
The Daily Mail reports that the book claims that Palin snorted cocaine off a 55 gallon oil drum with her husband while snowmobiling with friends as well as smoked marijuana with one of her college professors in secret.
The author says that Palin, who is now 47-years-old, had a one-night stand with Miami Heat basketball star Glen Rice less than a year before she eloped with her husband Todd. She is said to have had the whirl wind romance with the basketball star in her younger sister Molly's University of Alaska dorm room. She met the incredibly tall player in 1987 when she covered a college basketball tournament as a sports reporter for KTUU television in Alaska.]
