Palin’s E-Mail Account Hacked, Published on Web Site


In the latest of a series of invasions into Sarah Palin’s personal life, hackers have broken into the Republican vice presidential candidate’s private e-mail account, and a widely read Web site has published screen grabs from it.

An article Wednesday in posts family photos and snapshots of e-mail exchanges the Alaska governor had with colleagues. Gawker says the-email account has since been shut down, but it will leave the images up on its site for all to see.

“Here are the screenshots of the emails saved before the account went dark, along with the contact list. It’s newsworthy and we will not be taking it down!” the site declares.

Rick Davis, campaign manager for John McCain, released a statement calling the publication a “shocking invasion of the governor’s privacy and a violation of law.”

And some kind of explanation but anyone who has posted on message boards for any period of time realizes that this account sounds like someone trying to get their story together and it is published so when asked their accomplices can get their storys straight. Never in this explanation real or imagined is the word "CRIME" mentioned or facilitated in a CRIME or IDENTITY THEFT, ACCOMPLICE. RECEIVING STOLEN PROPERTY. THE PERSON HERE TALKS ABOUT INTENT TO FIND SOMETHING INCRIMINATING, to damage her part in the Presidential Campaign.

The good news both the FBI and The Secret Service are involved now. Lets hope we get to watch a perp walk. Lets hope GAWKER pays the ultimate price. For publishing personal material without the consent of the owner it was stolen from.
