(CNN) – An upcoming tell-all on Sarah Palin authored by a former top aide alleges the Republican firebrand despised her job as governor and broke campaign election laws in 2006.
According to the Anchorage Daily News, a 500-page manuscript authored by Frank Bailey was leaked to several Alaska media organizations over the weekend.
The book reportedly describes a Palin deeply exasperated with her political opponents and the heightened attacks she faced after being tapped to be the GOP vice presidential nominee in 2008.
"I hate this damn job," Bailey says Palin wrote in an e-mail to him shortly before her resignation in the summer of 2009.
The yet-to-be-published book was leaked to the media and widely circulated over the weekend. It also alleges Palin flagrantly violated campaign law when she closely collaborated with the Republican Governor's Association on a campaign ad in 2006. Because of the RGA's status as a 527 organization, the group can only support candidates independently and are barred from coordinating on strategy.
According to the Daily News, Bailey joined Palin's political team in 2006 and had been in her in her circle until her resignation as governor. He had previously declined all media requests regarding his perceptions of his former boss.
The book was also written by Jeanne Devon, a longtime critic of the former governor who publishes the anti-Palin blog Mudflats, and California author Ken Morris, who has written anti-Palin articles on his own website.
In a posting on Mudflats Friday, Devon writes she is "shock and horrified" that the book has been leaked to the media.
"The toothpaste is out of the tube as they say," she wrote. "So, now there's a little intrigue added to this story, which we certainly would not have chosen, and the consequences of which are yet to be known."
Morris also expressed similar outrage: "One thing I'd like to be very clear about is that the leak was not in any way approved, and the team will protect our rights in the material to the fullest extent of the law. We will seek all legal recourse available against those responsible and those that continue the unauthorized spread of the content," he said.
Pam Pryor, a spokesman for Palin's PAC, told the Anchorage Daily News she did not expect Palin would respond to "this kind of untruth."
Another Palin spokesperson has not responded to CNN's request for comment.
