WASHINGTON (AP) - Details emerged Thursday behind the break-in of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's e-mail account, including a first-hand account suggesting it was vulnerable because a hacker was able to impersonate her online to obtain her password.

This hacker is liberalism personified. They have no life, no ideas, no identity of their own so they have to mimic, then steal, from others to be “validated.”
All collectivist ideology, as is evil itself,
They cannot exist alone and must suck the life out of good ideologies.
Is there any proof of this? If not, isn't it time for the public to punish news outlets who print unsubstantiated rumors as truth?
Hm. Criminal impersonation and identify theft.
I hope he’s got his panties in a wad right about now. I hope they find him and prosecute to the fullest.
‘impersonate her online to obtain her password.’
Classic social engineering hack.

Might? Dork, the Secret Service WILL ... get ready for the knock on your door from the guys with the dark glasses and funny watches. You are in for a serious *talking to*, they don't care your party politics.
If 34% of democrats believe she is, Obama is in trouble. Very few republicans and reasonable people listen to PBS.
I think the poll has been closed as the number has NOT changed in two days.
What difference does it make how the criminal hacked her email account?
Would it be admirable, or any less a crime if the crook had borrowed sophisticated equipment from Tom Cruise and Mission Impossible?
Sometimes I can't believe the idiocy...
You nailed it.
It’s a shame that the liberals have made a sham out of the political process.
And out of everything else as well.
This case will be an interesting test for the Secret Service. Can they catch the wrongdoers? Or will they be defeated by clever defiance and political correctness? If they succeed, the wrongdoers should go to prison,where they can enjoy their liberal inclinations. If they don’t succeed, we should all catch our breath for what is coming next!

This is a case where politicians of both parties will close ranks to protect themselves. Neither Dems or Repubs want to risk having their e-mails hacked.
*talking to* code for getting royaly screwed. Whoever did this will be made an example of to.
The F.B.I. is now involved.
Article has a good description of how he did it.

I’d bet 10 to 1 that someone at Yahoo offered the password to the Obama campaign or that this kid knew someone working there.. the YHOO people are pretty much as liberal as the GOOG people.
WHAT did Obama know, and WHEN did he know it?
