Wow, so Palin’s Yahoo account was hacked. Obviously against the law but I thought that privacy law suspended 😉 And the Republican party response, please ignore the man behind curtain, destroy the emails. Please don’t forward to any authorities.
Palins Yahoo Account Hacked | The Trail | washingtonpost.com
A group of computer hackers said yesterday they accessed a Yahoo e-mail account of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee, publishing some of her private communications to expose what appeared to be her use of a personal account for government business.
The hackers posted what they said were personal photos, the contents of several messages, the subject lines of dozens of e-mails and Palins e-mail contact list on a site called WikiLeaks.org. That site claimed that it received the electronic files from a group identifying itself only as “Anonymous.”
“At around midnight last night some members affiliated with the group gained access to governor Palins email account, firstname.lastname@example.org and handed over the contents to the government sunshine site Wikileaks.org,” said a message on the site.
Rick Davis, the campaign manager for Sen. John McCain, issued a statement Wednesday afternoon condemning the incident.
“This is a shocking invasion of the Governors privacy and a violation of law,” Davis said. “The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these e-mails will destroy them. We will have no further comment.”
