Sarah Palin’s Unauthorized Email Access: An Update

On September 17, 2008, an email account used by US vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was breached by a hacker. The contents of her emails, including private photos, were then posted online by someone called "anonymous," stating the aim was to "derail her campaign." The son of a prominent Tennessee politician, twenty-year-old college student David Kernell, has now had his apartment and computer searched by the FBI and he remains the only named suspect in the case.

Kernell (20) is the son of Mike Kernell, a Democratic state representative from Memphis. The FBI and Secret Service launched a formal investigation on September 17 into the hacking of one of Palin’s Yahoo email accounts.

As more detailed information is released, I will share it with you all.
