London, Feb 23 (ANI): Sarah Palin has a secret Facebook account that she uses to publish comments on daughter Bristol's profile page, according to a new tell-all book.
Even before its publication, the manuscript by former Palin aide, Frank Bailey, has sparked firestorm around Palin.
In the book, the former Alaska governor has also been accused of calling former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich a 'goon', reports the Daily Mail.Its contents have been steadily leaked, first in Alaskan media and then online. The Politico blog, which has seen manuscript, published the latest claims about Palin and Gingrich.
Palin is said to have made the comment after being bumped from a Republican fundraising dinner in 2009 in favour of Gingrich.
She sent a 'scathing email' that, according to Politico, demonstrates her 'distrust of Republican insiders'.
In the email Palin is said to have referred to Gingrich and colleagues as 'egotistical, narrow-minded machine goons'.
In spite of her anger, she also apparently suggested it was a blessing in disguise that she had dodged "introducing him and acting like that good ol' rich white guy is the savior of the party."
Palin's personal Gmail address was also included in the manuscript. The blog Wonkette searched that address on Facebook and managed to turn up a Facebook account under the name 'Lou Sarah', seemingly a secret account maintained by Palin.
The account is used to like many of the statements and claims made on Palin's official page, as well as to comment on daughter Bristol's page.
In the book, Bailey has claimed that Palin repeatedly said: "I hate this damn job." (ANI)
