"The Lies of Sarah Palin" is the first full-scale critical biography of the former vice-presidential candidate, up through her resignation as Alaska governor, and as a potential presidential candidate in 2012. In "The Lies of Sarah Palin", award-winning investigative reporter Geoffrey Dunn will expose: personal secrets about Sarah Palin's coming-of-age in Wasilla and her marriage to Todd Palin; her extremist religious views and 'End of Days' beliefs; the truth behind 'Troopergate' and the firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan; the secrets surrounding her selection as John McCain's running mate; her failures as governor upon her return to Alaska after the campaign, and the real reasons she resigned; the strange inner-circle of Washington D.C. powerbrokers, neoconservatives, and rightwing Christians who have taken control of Palin's career; her obsession with Barack Obama and her lies about his 'death panels'; and, her Presidential ambitions and aspirations for 2012. Based on more than 100 in-depth interviews and thousands of pages of revelatory documents, "The Lies of Sarah Palin" tells the story that she doesn't want the American people to know.
