They have all reported it and it's currently under investigation. Kudos to them for respecting her privacy and not publishing excerpts from the e-mails. What more is there to be reported . . . or are you insinuating that Obama is behind this, and that he should be called on this without any proof?

Remember she said she would cooperate with the investigation, and all of a sudden, without giving a reason, she said she would not?

This is just speculation, but -

I think the Repubs hacked into her emails and found incriminating evidence and told her not to cooperate until after the election. This way, McCain gets in, and they don't care much what happens to Sarah after that happens. In fact, McCain could then do what he wanted to in the first place, and appoint Joe Lieberman as the new Vice President.

It would give them a good excuse for getting her out of the way.

Laws were broken when she used a yahoo account to perform her official duties. It's too hard to explain.

They would be having a meltdown if it had been Obama's email.

It's not 100% verified yet. The problem with hackers is that they are not exactly the most honest people so it's hard to trust them. The other problem is that it's not like Palin is going to come out and say "Yes those were my emails". That's the whole point of the private email usage for government business. 0 transparency. Shady b***h.

Yeah, more "the media is against us" B/S.

There has been plenty of coverage of it - they are just not fixated on it. There is too much turbulent economic news right now eating up the air time right now.
