9/3/2008 7:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who will be the father of Gov. Sarah Palin's grandkid is getting dragged into the fray – he's going to the GOP convention today.

Levi Johnston, who will be marrying Bristol Palin, left Alaska yesterday and will be joining the Palin fam in St. Paul, just in time for the Gov's big speech tonight. According to Levi's mom, the couple decided to get married before the big revelation of Bristol's pregnancy.

Johnston was a star forward for the local high school hockey team, the Wasilla Warriors.

Raffa Mooched Thousands Off Anne H


Before he got pinched by the Feds for conning investors out of millions, Raffaello Follieri was sucking tens of thousands from his ex-GF Anne Hathaway's bank account.

A new story in Vanity Fair (as the NY Post reports) says Anne paid Raffa's rent -– all $37,000 per month of it – for months, until his lease ran out, and he had to move in with his parents at their Trump Tower pad. Anne also helped Feds nab the con artist by luring him back from Europe when they were ready to pop him.

It was just six hours after Hathaway dumped Follieri that he was busted by the Feds, says the mag.
