*Well, well, well. Like the old saying goes, “what’s done in the dark …”

According to a tell-all book to be released this month, staunch Republican and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin reportedly had a one-night stand with former Heat/Hornet/Laker  Glenn Rice.

The book, entitled “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin” by Joe McGinniss, said that Palin and Rice met when she was a sports reporter for Anchorage TV station KTVV and Rice was a 6 ft. 8 forward at the University of Michigan.

The tryst occurred in 1987, and Tea Party Palin was described by a friend as the aggressor, with a pal reporting “she hauled his a** down.”

The book also reports that Palin was once seen snorting cocaine off the top of a 55-gallon drum while snowmobiling with friends as well as smoking pot with a professor.

There was no response from the Palin camp to any of the tales from the McGinniss book. Rice did not return calls for comment, reports the NY Daily News, although the Enquirer said former NBA player confirmed the hook up to McGinniss.

The 230-page book is due in stores next week.
