I agree. I'm glad they haven't published it, even though it's apparently available on the web.

I seriously doubt the Obama campaign had anything to do with this.

State Rep. Mike Kernell confirmed Thursday that his son, a University of Tennessee-Knoxville student, is at the center of heated Internet discussion into the hacking of the personal e-mail of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Kernell, a Memphis Democrat, confirmed that it is his 20-year-old son, David, who is being widely named on Internet blogs and chatrooms in connection with an unfolding story about Palin's hacked e-mail accounts.

The FBI and the Secret Service started a formal investigation on Wednesday into the hacking.

David Kernell is a student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Mike Kernell said he spoke to his son on Thursday, as he does on a regular basis.

Kernell otherwise declined to comment, or discuss his son’s whereabouts.

Shady b***h.

The disclosure Wednesday raises new questions about the propriety of the Palin administration's use of nongovernment e-mail accounts to conduct state business. The practice was revealed months ago - prior to Palin's selection as a vice presidential candidate - after political critics obtained internal e-mails documenting the practice by some aides.
Now John, tell us again how well you vetted this woman for your running mate. Please. Enlighten us.

Are you serious?

In any case. It's called the Alaska Public Records Act. It includes emails that deal with government business.

I thought these e-mails were between Palin and her hubby..would that be considered "government business"?

Some of the screenshots show emails with subject lines that relate to government business as well as official government email addresses. There were two accounts hacked. Only one, with mostly personal items, have been released to the web. Both accounts were deleted.

It wouldn't be that big a deal had it not been shown earlier in the year to be something she's done before as the link I posted above says.

The irony of all of this is that, thanks to the "Patriot" act, brought to you by the Republicans, EVERYONE'S email can be hacked so that we can "catch terrorists." Sounds like some karma is coming home to roost.

I'm voting Republican this year, but god I hate the Patriot Act. That's a Bush thing, not something real Repubs normally support.

The hacker could have chosen to leave Palin's email alone. Assuming this guy was a democrat, it's hypocritical for him to get into her account. Aren't the dems all for privacy? Oh, you guys respect the privacy of people that think like you. I see.
