Legal action against paper weighed by McCain camp
(09-04 10:57)

The McCain campaign said legal action "will be considered'' against the National Enquirer after the tabloid published allegations that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin had an extramarital affair.

"The smearing of the Palin family must end,'' McCain senior adviser Steve Schmidt said in a statement e-mailed to reporters. "The allegations contained on the cover of the National Enquirer insinuating that Governor Palin had an extramarital affair are categorically false.''

Schmidt called the story a "vicious lie,'' and said that "legal action will be considered with regard to this disgraceful smear.'' Palin was named as Republican presidential candidate John McCain's running mate on August 29.
