The Tennessean reports what blogs have been buzzing about all day:
The son of state Rep. Mike Kernell has been contacted by authorities in connection with a probe into the hacking of the personal e-mail of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Kernell confirmed on Thursday.
Kernell, a Memphis Democrat, said his 20-year-old son David had been contacted by authorities investigating the hacking of Palins personal email account.
The FBI and the Secret Service started a formal investigation on Wednesday into the hacking.
David Kernell is a student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Mike Kernell said he spoke to his son on Thursday, as he does on a regular basis.
Kernell otherwise declined to comment, or discuss his sons whereabouts and whether he was in custody.

This could get VERY interesting.
So when the FBI and Secret Service produce tangible evidence, what will the ball-less, compassionate conservatives in the Bush Administration do with it?
Son’s computer at bottom of their family backyard pool?
Not a damn thing.
Sentencing should be either the death penalty or 5 years without the internet./sarc. But I hope the feds get him good to set an example that this will NOT be tolerated.
But, can you IMAGINE if one of ours did this to Obambi? It would be worth it just to watch Olbermanniac sputter and drool...
“The Associated Press is still not cooperating with the feds. But it has published a new story about Ramuglias cooperation and has recycled the story behind the hacking as an original report.”
Somehow I thought that “not cooperating with the Secret Service” was not an option. Silly me.
I think some of you are missing something here.
His father has links to the Obama campaign.
I want to know whether the Obama Campaign has any fingerprints on this.
That’s way tacky. You should hit the abuse button on yourself and get it self-deleted before someone else does it.
He seems eager to let everyone know about this. I guess it's a badge of honor for him and figures it'll help him in his reelection.
(I just did. Guess the Mod doesn’t mind it)
And how active is he on the MoveOn, Kos, and DU sites? Inquiring minds want to know.
what has happened to FR?....
The son of the head of Obama’s campaign in Tennessee, if I’m not mistaken.
You need to slap your own hand!!! Shame on you.
if they find a certified letter from osama obama ordering the kid to hack into the email account, the Bush admin would still not think it was good enough evidence.
“Refused to discuss his son’s whereabouts” other than to say it is somewhere up sh&t creek
His Father I believe is a State Chairman for “Tennessee for Obama”.
McCain needs to get off his ass and make this a Dan Rather Scandal pronto.
