You know you want it. Some juicy detail from the Bailey book here; strange refusal of the Anchorage Police Department to investigate the National Enquirer's claims:

Officer Parker said that there is currently no plan of the Police Department to issue a “retraction” of the previous press release to clarify the “MINOR”  issues that were misstated in the previous press release.  There is currently also no plan to review the cell phones or computer in their possession to determine the names or identity of the phone numbers on the evidence in their possession.  Thus if there is evidence on the cell phone or computer in the possession of the police, of a connection between Todd Palin and Shailey Tripp, the Anchorage Police Department has no current plan to investigate  that connection.
