The disclosure Wednesday raises new questions about the propriety of the Palin administration's use of nongovernment e-mail accounts . . .Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? These hackers commit a federal felony and the AP says it "raises questions" about Palin?
Flashback -- Associated Press, November 1963:
The events in Dallas raise new questions about the propriety of the Kennedy administration's planning of its motorcade route . . .Flashback -- Associated Press, December 1941:
The incident in Hawaii raises new questions about the propriety of the Roosevelt administration's selection of naval bases . . .Journalistic malpractice, plain and simple.
UPDATED: Linked in Hot Air headlines. Thanks. Meanwhile (small universe) Michelle Malkin has an account of how this hack happened.
UPDATE II: Jeff Goldstein questions whether "left-wing" is a fair description of the hacker(s) who did this. I'm going to go out on a limb here and bet that when the FBI makes an arrest in this case, a quick search of FEC records will reveal that the perp has zero donations to Republicans. Canadian Guy thinks he's identified the perp as a Memphis resident.
UPDATE III: "The bottom layer of the right-wing noise machine."
PREVIOUSLY: Alex Parene has some of the content at Gawker.
Needless to say, Michelle Malkin is (a) no fan of Gawker, and (b) a must-read on the tactics of the Palin Derangement Syndrome criminals. Yes, I said "criminals." Hacking private e-mail is a federal crime, and there is no amount of data-scrubbing that will prevent the FBI from hunting down these vermin and putting them in federal prison, where there is no parole.
ORIGINAL POST: Because they care so much about the "right to privacy," don't you know. What despicable, hypocritical vermin they are.
