A former aide to Sarah Palin is writing a book expected to be a "chilling exposé" of his experiences working with her, both as governor of Alaska and a 2008 vice-presidential candidate.


When a book is called "Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin," you can guess it's not a happy story.

An imprint of Simon & Schuster announced Monday that it had signed up "Blind Allegiance," a long-rumored tell-all by former Palin aide Frank Bailey. The imprint, Howard Books, will release Bailey's book May 24. Excerpts from an early draft were leaked to reporters earlier this year.

Bailey worked with Palin while she was governor of Alaska and when she was John McCain's running mate on the Republican presidential ticket in 2008.

Howard Books is calling "Blind Allegiance" a "chilling exposé." Author Ken Morris and Alaska political blogger Jeanne Devon helped write the book.
