Sarah Palin Private Email Account Hacked By Scumbags

[Update] 9/21/08- Warrant Served to Democratic Politician's son.

Person claiming to be the hacker is Democratic politician's son and says there was no incriminating evidence in any email.

Looks like morons will stop at nothing to continue attacking Sarah Palin, including hacking into her personal email account at yahoo.

The internet griefers known as Anonymous took credit for the intrusion, and screenshots of e-mail messages and photos belonging to the Alaska governor have been published by WikiLeaks. Threat Level has confirmed the authenticity of at least one of the e-mails.

The cache of stolen data contains five screenshots from Palin's account, including the text of an e-mail exchange with Alaskan Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell about his campaign for Congress.

Both Palin's yahoo accounts have now been deleted.

ArtVoice tells us previous idiocy by this group of hackers.

Anonymous is the same group responsible for such stunts as the NFL dirty bomb threat in October 2006, and has more recently been behind organized global protests of Scientology.

WikiLeaks said in a press release sent to reporters that Anonymous gained access to Palin's e-mail account around midnight Tuesday.

They posted private family photos that Palin sent to friends, the email addresses in her contact list and more. Those email addresses are now being passed around by.... you got it...Liberals.

Gawker sunk even lower by publishing the private family pictures that have never been released to the public.

Guess there is no level too low for them to stoop to huh?

[Update] Malkin goes farther than just calling these jerks 'scum" , in her words, "Bastards. Bastards all."

Well said and agreed.

[Update] Hot Air has the McCain campaign response, via campaign manager, Rick Davis:

“This is a shocking invasion of the Governor’s privacy and a violation of law. The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these emails will destroy them. We will have no further comment.”
[Update] Now a site, which I refuse to link to and give traffic to are calling Palin's daughter, 5 times as of now, recorded the messages on the voice mail then recorded his message he left the poor kid asking for naked pictures. (H/T Don Surber)

Now, the Secret Service will become involved.

[Update] Per Macsmind, the DOJ will now be getting involved and a good point from him is:

Per a contact with the DOJ, an investigation will begin into the group who hacked into Sarah Palin’s email and posted messages on the internet. Intercept of private email communication - even of a public figure - is a federal offense. Not only can the original hackers be charged, but all those who posted the messages as well. The website Gawker may be in further trouble for going beyond the email to post pics from the Palin’s personal message box, as well as other personal information that may be afoul of laws dealing with identity theft.

So, liberals busy spreading the information obtained illegally are also in violation of the law.

Now we are talking.

[Update] As per Fox News, the Secret Service has asked Associated Press for copies of the leaked emails and they refused.


Huffington Post, Gawker, AmericaBlog All Published Illegally Obtained Information From Sarah Palin's Hacked Email Account

FBI spokesman Brian Hale said, "The FBI is aware of the alleged hacking incident involving Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and is coordinating with the United States Secret Service on the matter."
