Hackers Expose Sarah Palin’s Private Emails In “Emailgate” Scandal
A team of hackers dubbed “Anonymous” breached Gov. Palin’s Yahoo e-mail account, and posted a number of announcements and screenshots to several sites on the Internet including Wikileaks.org and Gawker.com.
The hackers were able to mask their tracks by using a CTunnel.com proxy server, but the released screenshots include some partial IP data which authorities might be able to use to catch them.
Sarah Palin Email Hack Exposes Government Transparency Issues
Palin’s personal email account isn’t just coming under fire from hackers, but also government watchdogs. It’s believed that Governor Palin was using this Yahoo email account to avoid government transparency mechanisms.
Also, after recovering the password from Yahoo, Palin’s people deleted the Yahoo email account. Isn’t that a destruction of evidence?
The John McCain campaign released this statement about the Yahoo the incident:
“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 e-mails will destroy them.”
John McCain has nothing to worry about. McCain doesn’t even know how to use a email (we’re not joking).
