The National Enquirer, although their evidence seems scanty, is inferring that Brad Hanson is Sarah Palinâ€™s affair. Read his biography and see photos and video here.
The evidence that Brad Hanson is Sarah Palinâ€™s affair is thin so you might consider this to be more campaign dirty tricks. But that is what the ever so reputable National Enquirer insinuated. Adding to the rumor are allegations that Brad reportedly filed an emergency motion to have his divorce records sealed in Alaska. The National Enquirer is filled with photos and â€œevidenceï¿½ï¿½? about Brad Hanson and Sarah Palinâ€™s alleged affair, which supposedly took place in 1996. This seems the stuff of dirty campaign tricks so don’t believe it until there is more hard evidence.
Brad Hanson was born in Montana, but he grew up in small town Alaska. He was a jock in high school and later became a Palmer football/hockey coach and property developer. He is a friend of Sarah Palinâ€™s husband, Todd Palin, as the two bonded over sports and hunting. The two also ran a snowmobile dealership together until Todd allegedly discovered Brad and Sarah had been bonding over their shared interest in politics. Brad was married at the time, which was supposedly around 1996. Todd diminished the partnership after hearing stories about the affair.
According to reports, three members of Hanson’s family have sworn – one by affidavit – that Brad Hanson had a relationship. This has been denied by Palin, and the McCain campaign has threatened to sue over this story, which clearly didnâ€™t prevent the Enquirer from publishing.
A Hanson family insider named Jim Burdett talked about the affair, and reportedly passed a polygraph test, to supposedly offer proof that the affair happened. Burdett says,
â€œIâ€™ve known about Brad having had an affair for a long time, but it wasnâ€™t until just recently that I learned his affair was with Sarah Palin. Sarah was elected mayor of Wasilla, Brad became a city council member in the nearby town of Palmer, and they started an affair. Todd found out about the affair and was so mad he broke up their partnership at the snowmobile dealership.ï¿½ï¿½?
Another source, which remains anonymous, but also gave a sworn affidavit said.
â€œTodd was away on business a lot and Sarah felt lonely. Brad was a good listener, and Sarah talked to him at length. Eventually, she realÂized she was falling in love with him. When Todd got back from one of his trips, Sarah told him that she had begun to have feelings for Brad.ï¿½ï¿½?
Since when did feelings and talking become an “affair.” This anonymous source doesn’t even claim they had sex!
