Palin Divorce Email Likely a Joke

It looks like the email suggesting that Sarah Palin contemplated divorce was actually...a joke. In 2007, Palin sent an email to aide Kris Perry and Todd with the subject line "Martial Problems," asking, "if we, er, when we get a divorce, does that quell the 'conflict of interest' accusation about BP?" But another aide, Frank Bailey, responded, "VERY funny," implying that the email was just a gag to begin with. If it wasn't, Bailey probably would have mentioned it in his salacious 2011 tell-all about the former Alaska governor. In other Palin news, one of her former aides offered to “confidentially consult” on 2008 HBO election film Game Change, according to Politico.
