In the latest of a series of invasions into Sarah Palin’s personal life, hackers have broken into the Republican vice presidential candidate’s private e-mail account, and a widely read Web site has published screen grabs from it.
An article Wednesday in Gawker.com posts family photos and snapshots of e-mail exchanges the Alaska governor had with colleagues. Gawker says the-email account has since been shut down, but it will leave the images up on its site for all to see.
“Here are the screenshots of the emails saved before the account went dark, along with the contact list. It’s newsworthy and we will not be taking it down!” the site declares.
Rick Davis, campaign manager for John McCain, released a statement calling the publication 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. We will have no further comment,” Davis said…
A Personal Comment:
I strongly urge Gov. Palin to pursue these individuals to the fullest extent allowed by law. Such an invasion of privacy is an attack on every person who relies on the internet for communication, business, or any other reason. This type of take no prisoners and hear no opposition approach has been evident ever since Sen. Obama began his campaign. He has developed a cult like following that seems to have no limits when it comes to choosing tactics to intimidate people who stand up to Sen. Obama. He has developed a massive email list(s) that is used to mobilize attacks to any possible trouble for the Senator. Ask the radio station that hosted Stanley Kurtz how far Obama’s supporters will go to silence people.
Unfortunately Gov. Palin, you are not the first to be attacked. Larry Sinclair and many other bloggers who raise legitimate issues concerning Sen. Obama have had their share of attacks from Sen. Obama’s hidden internet supporters. Mr. Sinclair has had to endure threats of physical violence against himself and his family (death threats). He has had his websites attacked numerous times and his web hosts intimidated. It even appears that legal processes may have been abused to have him unjustly arrested in Delaware.
One would think that the media would be following these attacks closely – they are not. They cover for Sen. Obama at every turn because they have chosen him. He is one of them, the elite who should decide for everyone else.
Obama’s campaign is shameful. The Media’s behavior is shameful. What about the allegations that Obama used cocaine and engaged in consensual gay sex with Larry Sinclair in November of 1999? Will the MSM stop taking sides in the election and do their jobs? Will they investigate Mr. Sinclair’s allegations? Will they dig into Obama’s past as hard as they have jumped on Gov. Palin, and her 17 year old daughter? Will they look deeply into Obama’s relationships with William Ayers, Rev. Wright, Tony Rezko, Acorn, and all the rest? Will they look into the Congress’s involvement in the Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac failures? (Requiring lenders to make more and more risky loans.) Will they mention the role that some of Sen. Obama’s current advisers had in the failures of Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac? Unfortunately, the answer is No. They will tell the Obama narative just the way he wants it told.
The media is willing to sell it’s soul and destroy it’s own credibility to see Sen. Obama elected. I wonder if they tell their children what they are doing?
