He did not have authorization from Palin to use the account created by her. That's actually a felony in this country, so he should be charged accordingly. If Palin committed any crime, which has yet to be determined, then she will have to answer for that. It still doesn't negate the fact that this guy committed a felony. If a cop broke into your house without serving you a warrant to steal information on you, it's illegal as well. This is no different.

For those of you who don't have a problem with it, how would you feel if someone stole mail from Obama's mailbox that proved he was involved in criminal activity in Chicago? Exactly - it's a felony, regardless in the victim was guilty of another crime or not.

Edit:
Here's the law the "password resetter" broke:

If he broke a law, then he should be charged with a crime.

But if he gets a subpoena he should just ignore it.

A little time in prison would not only open his eyes, but the other end, too....

Yes, he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

It is a crime and it should be punished!!! If this guy gets away the next person will start to hack an email too.....and OMG what if it is Obama....than maybe the Dem. will get off their butt and react....no this time it is Palin and all the Dem. on this forum seem to be busy putting up posts to smear her and her family and try to get away from the real issue ....Obama has no experience and will raise taxes which is bad for the economy!

So would this apply to the Bush Administration officials that wiretape American citizens without judicial oversight?
