Sarah Palinís private e-mail hacked, family photos raided; cesspool blog gloats

Scroll for updates…Wired News confirms…

Sometime early this morning, between approximately 3:00am - 4:00am, members of an infamous group of hackers broke into Gov. Sarah Palin’s private Yahoo e-mail account. The incriminating discussion threads included screenshots of Palin’s e-mail and private e-mail addresses of her contacts. The threads have since been deleted.

Hacking e-mail is a federal crime. A TV anchor who broke into his colleague’s e-mail account recently pleaded guilty and faces a maximum five years in prison.

The law will catch up to the hackers, but what about the lowlifes who are now gleefully splashing the alleged contents of Palin’s private e-mail account all over the Internet?

The Gawker smear machine — see here for all the background you need — has posted private family photos of Palin’s children that were apparently stolen from the e-mail account.

They have used Bristol Palin’s illegally obtained private cell phone number from her mom’s private account, recorded her voicemail message, and posted it on their website.

They have reprinted her husband Todd’s private e-mail address and son Track’s private e-mail address.

You think this is just a harmless prank? Those of you who have had to deal with break-ins and identity theft know exactly what a burdensome process it is to recover from crimes like this.

Gawker knowingly and deliberately published illegally obtained photos of the Palin children.

Where are the privacy absolutists now?

You think Palin Derangement Syndrome is bad now? These by-any-means-necessary lunatics are just warming up.

Let me repeat what I said about Nick Denton and his slime businesses in 2006. It’s every bit as relevant now. And I expect the same cowards who said nothing then to remain silent about the violations of the Palin family’s privacy now:

-----------------------------

There is a time to be tolerant and there is a time to draw lines. If you don’t draw those lines, bullies will be emboldened. The smug Gawker smear machine is all about pushing those boundaries with the expectation that no one will push back. They project their own cynicism, recklessness with facts, intellectual laziness, and bad faith on everyone else.

But outside of Manhattan and Los Angeles, not all of us think blogging is a for-profit enterprise founded solely to tear people down with gossip, rumor-mongering, and damaging lies disguised as “satire.” Funny how some of the loudest voices decrying the lack of civility in the blogosphere are the biggest promoters of the bottom-feeders and debasers at Gawker Media.

----------------------------------

Bastards. Bastards all.

A reminder of another high-profile privacy breech against a Republican: The Democrats’ fraud and theft of Michael Steel’s credit reports.

Update: Wired News confirms one of the messages…

Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s private Yahoo e-mail account was hacked, and some of its contents posted on the internet Wednesday.

The internet griefers known as Anonymous took credit for the intrusion, and screenshots of e-mail messages and photos belonging to the Alaska governor have been published by WikiLeaks. Threat Level has confirmed the authenticity of at least one of the e-mails.

The cache of stolen data contains five screenshots from Palin’s account, including the text of an e-mail exchange with Alaska Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell about his campaign for Congress.

Another screenshot shows Palin’s inbox and a third shows the text of an e-mail from Amy McCorkell, whom Palin appointed to the Governor’s Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse in 2007.

The e-mail, a message of support to Palin, tells her not to let negative press get to her and asks Palin to pray for McCorkell, who writes that “I need strength to 1. keep employment, 2. not have to choose.”

The Republican Party hasn’t responded to a call for comment, but McCorkell, reached at her office, confirmed that she did send the e-mail to Palin.

I hope Gawker gets taken down by this for reposting the stuff.

Lucky for Palin, she has a highly organized and decidedly resourceful Secret Service to help.

Well, they really stepped into this time. This is a potential VP, idiots! The Secret Service is probably gassing the sedan for their trip to Mom and Dad’s basement right now.

Good!

I don’t feel the faintest flicker of surprise. This is simply the kind of creatures they are.

If this is indeed a Federal crime, I hope that the perps are not only caught, but that their mug shots are disseminated far and wide...

It’s becoming more and more apparent that the “Big Battle” is coming to the surface over this election.

This is the same outfit that had the private divorce proceedings of a former obama opponent in Il (Ryan) unsealed and exposed for the world to see. Why should anything these marxist do suprise anyone.

Do NOT Worry, this will not work. Palin is an honorable woman, and there was a prophecy that MCCAIN PALIN will win this election. If God has declared it, it will come to pass and NO lowlifes of Obama’s will be able to stop it...not even voter fraud.

You may not travel believe in the spiritual thing I am speaking of, but those who are spirit-filled will understand. Obama is going down!

Also, “Rothschild” who is Hillary’s good friend, and her DEMOCRAT FUNDRAISER during Primary came out in support of MCCAIN PALIN today on CAVUTO, Fox News...saying Obama could not do the job of President....a big boost for McCain-Palin.

FBI should be on Yahoo’s doorstep waiting on the CEO Yang and arrest his ass, then cease and disist the entire company until the perps are located.

What about the publication of the minors’ photos?

I would think that could get into some real bigtime jailtime.

Folks, at some point we have to consider the serious possibility that the U.S. is no longer a single nation, but actually two very different nations — with different principles, mindsits and loyalties — masquerading as one, and these two nations are heading toward a major conflict beyond anything we have yet seen.

I'll say this much for them... they're consistent.

Let’s not forget what was discovered here. Although its a horrible thing to sneak into her inbox, it’s giving everyone a sneak peak into her life. A TOTALLY normal look.

Sarah Palin is a normal human with nothing ugly going on behind the scenes. She sends pics of her kids, offers words of encouragement, supports conservative folks and is God fearing.

Nothing about her inbox shows corruption or shadiness.

Palin haters really dont have anything concrete against her. LOL!

Obama’s poll numbers “will start going down” soon...he can’t hold some of the democrats that belonged to Hillary, because of the BACKING OF MCCAIN by Rothschild.

I hope the DOJ can trace this back to some higher up in the Obama Campaign. Put the squeeze on the little guy and they’ll give up the big guy.

If there is to be a silver lining in this sea of cloud, it is that McCain was ahead of the curve, not using email. We now have an object lesson as to why there is risk for a politician to do so.

OTOH God Bless Jeb Bush for reading and replying to emails from us lowly Floridians while he was our Governor.
