Sarah Palin's Attorney Threatens Lawsuit Over Book

Monday, 26 Sep 2011 11:01 PM

 

JUNEAU, Alaska — An attorney for Sarah Palin is threatening to sue over a new book that he says defamed the Palins and contains "a series of lies and rumors."

John Tiemessen, in a letter to the publisher of Crown Publishing Group Monday, cites an email that author Joe McGinniss allegedly sent a blogger in January seeking substantiation for several rumors that have surrounded Palin's family. That email was posted online last week by Andrew Breitbart.

Tiemessen says McGinniss' book, "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin," contains "most of" the stories that merely "amounted to the wishful fantasies of disturbed individuals."

Emails to Crown Publishing and McGinniss, sent after hours, weren't immediately returned.

McGinniss lived next door to the Palins last year while researching the book. It was released last week.
