Sarah Palin’s E-mail Hacked By “Anonymous” [UPDATED]

Republican VP Candidate and MILF Sarah Palin has had her private Yahoo e-mail hacked by the activist group “Anonymous” who are best known for their run-ins with Scientology. The contents of the e-mail account were then posted to the Internet via Wikileaks for all to see (if you can, the site is currently Slashdotted). The damage to Palin is huge. Apparently the contents of the e-mail account prove that she used private e-mail to to shield government business from public scrutiny, which from what I hear is illegal.

Sucks to be her.

Here’s the deal. Attacking Scientology is one thing. While I don’t condone that, I’m not losing sleep over it either and neither it seems are the authorities. However, when somebody hacks a VP candidate, the FBI and Secret Service can be fully expected to bring the pain to these individuals…. whomever they might be. If they can pin this on someone, they’re about to get owned.

Having said that, it should be interesting to see how McCain and Palin respond to this very embarrasing leak.

UPDATE: Gawker has posted more info on this including some contents of her e-mail account as well as a selection of her address list. As for McCain and Palin’s response to this, campaign manager Rick Davis said this:

“This is a shocking invasion of the Governor’s privacy and a violation of law. The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these emails will destroy them. We will have no further comment.”

Dude, the genie is out of the bottle. Everybody is going to be poking through these e-mails. You’ve got a major issue on your hands.
