Levi Johnston says Sarah Palin called her son with Down syndrome the R-word; Palin's response: He's "propagating lies"

From Inside TV on

On 'The Early Show,' Levi Johnston (pictured), former boyfriend of Bristol Palin and father to her child, continued to offer interesting tidbits on the Palin family.

According to Johnston, Sarah Palin repeatedly joked about her son Trig's Down syndrome, using a disparaging term to refer to his condition. And that's not all, said Johnston. He's apparently witnessed other damaging things while Palin was Governor of Alaska that could "get her in trouble."

Sarah Palin had this response, which is on the MSNBC Web site:

"We have purposefully ignored the mean spirited, malicious and untrue attacks on our family. We, like many, are appalled at the inflammatory statements being made or implied. Trig is our 'blessed little angel' who knows it and is lovingly called that every day of his life. Even the thought that anyone would refer to Trig by any disparaging name is sickening and sad. CBS should be ashamed for continually providing a forum to propagate lies. Consider the source of the most recent attention-getting lies - those who would sell their body for money reflect a desperate need for attention and are likely to say and do anything for even more attention."
