A new tell-all book, In Blind Allegiance To Sarah Palin: A Memoir Of Our Tumultous Years, paints a scathing portrait of Sarah Palin.
Bailey also writes that Palin's dark side includes "the compulsion to attack enemies, deny truth, play victim and employ outright deception."
Shushannah Walshe is a senior political reporter for The Daily Beast and the author of Sarah From Alaska.
INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerny sat down with Walshe and asked, "Does the author claim that Sarah Palin uses her children for political gain?"
"That to me is most shocking allegation, that really puts forward Bristol in the spotlight when she was pregnant and that she put Trig her fifth child in the spotlight for child down syndrome. In a way that they're used a political props," said Walshe.
Among the many claims in this book, there is one about Palin's marriage. The book contains e-mails that Bailey says were written by Palin about her husband Todd.
"There's this one e-mail and it says, 'Frank, we're not like other couples we don't talk.' And I thought that was really surprising because of how close they do seem," said Walshe.
