Somehow members of the Palin family not named Sarah are still making news. Here we have the barnburner that Levi Johnston, father of Bristol Palin’s child, claims in his book being released next week that Bristol got pregnant in retaliation for her mother getting pregnant with Trig.
I feel cheap for even passing this along. But here it is, from the HuffPo:
Johnston says when Bristol found out her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was expecting a baby she responded she should be having a baby, not her mother. He says she told him in March 2008, “let’s get pregnant.”
His book, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs,” comes out Sept. 20. The Associated Press bought a copy on Monday.
In Bristol Palin’s own book, “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far,” released last June, she says she lost her virginity to Johnston on a camping trip when she got drunk on wine coolers.
If there is truth to what Johnston claims, it definitely undercuts the Bristol’s-brave-for-keeping-the-baby bump that Sarah Palin got in evangelical support.
