ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- John McCain's campaign is denying a tabloid report that vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has had an extramarital affair, calling it "a vicious lie."
Spokesman Steve Schmidt says the campaign is considering legal action against the National Enquirer.
The tabloid wrote in its September 15th edition that Palin had an affair with a business associate of her husband, Todd Palin. The report goes on to say Todd Palin dissolved the business after discovering the infidelity. The claim is attributed only to "an enemy" of the Alaska governor.
Schmidt says in a statement that "the smearing of the Palin family must end."
