Hacking Sarah Palin’s personal e-mail accounts newsworthy? Updated

You’ve got to be kidding me. Isn’t this a federal crime? I assume that since Gawker was not the group that hacked in, they feel it’s perfectly fine to post screen shots, photos and the list of people in Palin’s personal address book.

UpdateMalkin reports that the proxy service – that the hackers used to hide their identity – will cooperate. Told ya – the FBI and Secret Service are on the case now. Pushing this to the top of the home page since it’s my number one post of all time for some reason (thanks Michelle).

Update 2: Like I said yesterday, this would not stand. I guess you fools who use proxy services to protect your identity need to rethink your approach.

Gawker calls this an exclusive – maybe because it’s their operatives that hacked into the account – illegally – and posted private information?

I normally don’t post about this crap, but this is way beyond going over the edge. Of course, leftist wackos are attempting to cover their ass by suggesting that the e-mail account was deleted to cover some sort of conspiracy.

Well I’m suggesting that since Gawker is calling this an exclusive, it’s logical to assume that they had something to do with the federal crime that was committed.

Go directly to jail.

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!

Gawker thinks this is newsworthy and won’t be taking it down? Maybe not, but don’t be surprised if a federal agency comes a knocking on the door. When that happens, they will claim that Bush is using the Department of Justice to attack their freedom of speech.

LGF is on it and Malkin is pretty mad too.
