Just kidding about the sexism part. But you believed it, right?
Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin's personal email was hacked recently the John McCain campaign is seriously pissed.
Palin’s Yahoo! Mail was plundered late Tuesday night. Her personal emails, addresses, family photos and phone numbers were soon published on the Internets.
Taking a break from picking fights over more important issues such as Lindsay Lohan, John McCain's campaign chief fired off the following threat reply:
“This incident represents a shocking invasion of the governor’s privacy and a violation of law. The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities. We hope that anyone in possession of these e-mails will destroy them.”
Ooh. That'll work. The hacker community always heeds to "authority.”
Sarah Palin might want to think up a new password.
Aside from the obvious humor in this - what was her password, Trig? - Sarah Palin's use of a Yahoo! account for state business does raise issues.
The Anchorage Daily News even wrote two days ago:
"Even before the McCain campaign plucked Palin from Alaska, a controversy was brewing over e-mails in the governor’s office. Was the administration trying to get around the public records law through broad exemptions or private e-mail accounts?"
One other side note: Sarah's husband, snowmobile racer Todd Palin, uses the screen name FeK9Wnr – short for Iron Dog Winner. Get it?
