Sarah Palin`s hubby ‘in sex scandal with masseur’

Todd is reportedly involved in an extramarital sex scandal with a prostitute.

New York: Former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin`s husband Todd is embroiled in a sex scandal involving a massage therapist who has been "busted for prostitution”, according to a report.

The National Enquirer claims it has unearthed official documents showing Shailey Tripp was arrested for maintaining a house of prostitution in March and that cops have confiscated physical evidence that could tie Todd to the alleged affair, reports the New York Daily News.

However, the tabloid did not reveal when the alleged rendezvous took place or what evidence was seized. And the Palins have also not commented on the report.

The Palin story began after several media outlets received an anonymous e-mail from claiming Tripp had an affair with Todd that eventually led to Tripp`s arrest in March 2010, wrote the tabloid.

"According to the tenants in the building of her offices, they saw Todd come and go often and heard noises that sounded like someone was having sex," the e-mail read.

The Enquirer claims its investigation revealed that Tripp was arrested on March 04 in Anchorage and charged with having a house of prostitution.

Tripp pleaded no contest on June 13, 2010, according to the tabloid, and has a sentencing date set for June 15, 2011.
