Palin should be arrested by the idiot police for using a Yahoo account for ANYTHING.

What a tool she is.

I think he was performing a community service. Seriously, what laws did he break? He did not hack, he just guessed her secret pass code. Yahoo and others always advise you to provide a password/answer that only you would know. Sarah wasn't too smart about that was she?

She was dumb to use a Yahoo account, he did something that is probably illegal (fraudulent??) and should be prosecuted.
