BREAKING: Sarah and Todd Palin To Divorce? (TWO UPDATES)

palin_0.jpg

Question mark because the reports are not 100 percent solid yet, but the news, which was broken by a local Alaska publication called Alaska Report News and a blog called the Immoral Minority, is starting to be picked up by other blogs and publications, including Mudflats — an Alaskan blog that is highly regarded:

According to The Immoral Minority blog who was the first one out of the chute with this story, and The Alaska Report, known for breaking news on Palin, the Palins’ marriage is on the rocks.  Both outlets stick by their sources in Anchorage and Wasilla.

According to the Immoral Minority’s bombshell post this morning, the Palin’s are calling it quits, she tossed her wedding ring in the lake, she has purchased land in Montana, Todd pulled a gun on Levi Johnston back in the summer of 2008, Levi has given an “explosive” interview to Vanity Fair Magazine, and Sherry Johnston’s court date was pushed up to allow negotiations which were not possible with Palin as governor pressuring for the maximum penalties in her drug case.

More at Memeorandum.

UPDATE: Lots more blogs starting to report in now.  Via Alaska Report, MSNBC’s First Read blog noted the distinct hostility between the Palins at her farewell resignation speech a week ago.  Apparently Sarah Palin left immediately after the speech, with Piper and Trig, leaving Todd behind to find his own way home. Also: The stress on the Palins’ marriage was, according to Alaska Report News, the main reason why Palin quit the governorship.

UPDATE 2: Sarah Palin’s attorney has denied the reports that the Palins are divorcing, according to CBS News.

An attorney for former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has denied a report that she and her husband are planning to divorce.

Sarah Palin’s attorney, Thomas Van Flein, told CBS News that the report of a divorce is “categorically false.”

Sorry for the delay in getting this up. I had family visiting and just got back to the computer.

  1. Apology accepted, GS.

  2. There is some unhealthy hatred towards Palin, as evidence in immature commenters pointing out that true Americans do not like her (And how so would you measure a true American? Would a true American support the current and last president who both have spent this country into a recession?) There are politicians (read: overwhelming majority of politicians) that I cannot stand, who are still in office despite being proven to be corrupt (some of these are uber-liberals, so some of their supporters are no doubt Palin-haters yet continue to support corruption – are these people true Americans?) Lackluster logic of these basement dwellers, aside. It is pathetic this website would push such a story. There is more pressing “domestic and international news” than a Palin divorce. I suppose next you will be pushing a story that Bristol Palin has a thing for Todd (since, younger photos of Todd Palin show a resemblance to Bristol's ex Levi Johnston). Is this original reporting, TVM? Report on the important matters at hand, not on somebody who you hold a personal grudge against. Feel ashamed, Kathy. You are falling into the ranks of bloggers who push stories due to their own disgust.

  3. Why can't the media and people just leave the woman alone? For God sake, if MSNBC or any other network would take seriously the world situation Sarah Palin would be left alone. I think she is a very intelligent woman and hope she goes after the idiots that started this rumor. Give her a break.

  4. Are we, as a nation, so gullible as to believe everything that is written? If so, I am from Chicago and I know President Obama and he has a “love child” that not too many people know about. I wonder how far will this go.

  5. perhaps we are all being played here??? . . .

    Less than one week ago, Governor Palin asked the media to 'quit making things up. . .

    my question is would it be in Palin's “gottcha” PR resurrenction to set up rumors and situations to prove her point premise; “Poor Sarah Palin if only the media would”guit making things up”??????

    once of the problems with Palin is she is crafty like a fox by not real integral. . . .this entire Palin divorce seems like some media people fell into the foxes trap??? “gottcha'???

  6. You obnoxious, immoral, bi- – - es and bas- – ds deserve to have the sh-t kicked out of you. If Todd Palin would come down beat the hell our Bill Mahr, Keith Oberman any other coward that attacked his wife falsely I will raise the money for his bail and defense so he can get out and whip them again. If there was ever a need for Tar and feathering to return to popularity it is now and we all know who I'm talking about.

  7. Jazz, thanks!

  8. “If you want to get into discussions about a right to marry the one you love, you need to change the law through the legislative branch to reflect this new right.”

    Gays and lesbians had the right to marry under the California constitution until Proposition 8 was passed. Prop. 8 was an amendment to the constitution, banning same sex marriages.

    So gays and lesbians had the constitutional right to marry before conservatives took that right away by amending the California constitution.

    As I keep saying conservatives want others to live like them, even if they have to amend the constitution to do it. That's not freedom for all. That's conservatives being bullies and it's even more bullying because these were rights in the CA constitution. The conservatives were ACTIVELY taking away rights of those they don't like.

  9. “You obnoxious, immoral, bi- – - es and bas- – ds deserve to have the sh-t kicked out of you”

    Somebody doesn't know how to spell—uses hyphens instead. Soon he/she will be using *#@&!'s…

  10. >>You obnoxious, immoral, bi- – - es and bas- – ds deserve to have the sh-t kicked out of you.

    Ah, what a class act. Thank you for your thoughtful drive-by commentary.

  11. I like ehr and her husband I hate to hear that I feel she has a lot of love in her heart but I am sure she will be okay because she walks with God.
