Cops: Palin Has NO Connection to Prostitute Ring

1/25/2011 11:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Anchorage Police Department is adamant they have NO information connecting Sarah Palin's husband Todd Palin to an alleged prostitution ring, despite a recent tabloid report ... TMZ has learned.


The APD released a statement explaining they did seize evidence in a massage parlor sting operation -- but none of the evidence showed any sort of link between a massage therapist named Shailey Tripp and Todd Palin.

The APD also claims the National Enquirer published their story without ever contacting officials to check their facts.

For those of you outside Alaska, let me point out that the prostitution ring is in Wasilla, Not in Anchorage. Anchorage Police would not have any thing to do with the arrest.

Sarah what's her name didn't have anything to do with it, but she benefited from the money made from it. The comedy continues.

sarah palin brings enough drama on herself without anyone having to make up storys about her. she is a walking story book everytime she opens her mouth she puts her foot in it and leaves herself wide open for ridicule. no one has to do or say anything about her, she does a fine enough job doing it all by herself..

Here are some photos of the Defendant's Agreement from Shailey Tripps court file, it directly contradicts Lt. Dave Parker of the Anchorage Police Department. It clearly says that APD got a call of potential prostitution.

"The investigation of the prostitution operation was initiated by Anchorage Police Department’s Vice Unit responding to internet advertisements, not through information developed from any tips or other persons."

Does anyone really think the Anchorage Police will jeopardize this massive prostitution bust to cover up one person's involvement?

Nope- doesn't pass the smell test (or the feasibility test- what do people think there is, an "erase evidence" button?)

I'm sure the Palins will try to sue. People try to sue the Enquirer all the time. Not all are successful. Let's wait and see how this plays out. Todd has been known to stray before. Oh boy.

It seems as if politics and prostitution go hand in hand.

Sarah Palin plans on Arizona after India, Kathy Grittin with play Palin on Broadway, and Julianne Moore is covering Palin's ruin in Hollywood when she plays Sarah Palin to win the Oscar Award. Palin is finished. Kathy has Palin in Broadway. Julianne Moore in Hollywood. Palin is finished now. Julianne Moore is excellent and I know because Sarah Palin impersonators model for all my books on Sarah Palin (and I have three now). They are hard to find. SNL parties, Halloween at the Hollywood Roosevelt, and at nightclubs in Las Vegas, finding a Sarah Palin impersonator who can deliver lines like Palin is impossible. Sarah Palin has a monopoly on "Folksy" phonetics . I have been casting for Sarah Palin impersonators since 2008. Sarah Palin's trip to India will ruin US. The people of India will have no respect for her, but the visit will promote Julianne Moore new movie where Moore plays Palin. Sarah better watch out. Jealous much, with Sarah away Todd might find Moore interest in films.

I find it funny that the APD is claiming the National Inquirer did not verify their facts before putting the story out when the BBC News put out an interview with Chuckie Heath stating that the FBI was on top of things and arrested Shawn Christy and sent him home without first verifying their facts! It's amazing because Chuckie's first lie was that the APD arrested him and, get this...bought him a plane ticket home! It's just another example of the Palin's using law enforcement for their own gains. If you people only knew the real truths...but in time, maybe you will.

He's too busy being Sarah's pimp to have time to have others prostitute for him.

Dear TMZ. The APD may have a strong statement but I do too.
On my blog I point out that their statement that Mr. Parker gave is completely untrue!

I beg to differ! Maybe TMZ should have interviewed me instead.
