Sarah Palin Had a Fling With Former Laker Glen Rice in His College Days
Sarah Palin had a one-night stand with former Laker Glen Rice, when the towering University of Michigan junior was playing at a basketball tournament in Alaska, according to The National Enquirer.
The affair happened in 1987, while she was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU and less than a year before she eloped with First Dude Todd Palin.
The Enquirer says that Rice confirmed the juicy detail in Joe McGiniss' upcoming book on Sarah Palin "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin." (The Enquirer calls the affair a "steamy interracial hookup," which means it is either slumming for Google keywords or hoping to stir up racist controversy.)
For the record: we're not judging that Palin may have slept with Rice. Good for her. But we do submit this little tidbit as a window into Palin's journalistic ethics. We're not the SPJ here, but we're pretty sure you're not supposed to sleep with the subjects of your reporting — at least until after your stories are done.
