Son of Democrat state rep behind Palin email hacking

Were there really any doubts that a democrat was behind this? David Kernell, the son of Tennessee state representative Mike Kernell, seems to be the one behind the hacking of Governor Sarah Palin’s email account.

David Kernell, 20, is a student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. The FBI and Secret Service paid him a visit yesterday and started a formal investigation.

You can read about it here and here.

I'm really not that surprised.

I'm a little confused. He said he did this on a lark... And realized that he might be in trouble... -But - he still managed to get the emails posted on the internet.

I think he broke the law... And feels bad that he got caught. I say prosecute the little creep.

You're right Janice, this is sooooo out of the lefty playbook. I would love to say it is all a Democrat dirty trick traceable back to the Obama campaign. But it's so stupid! Even they wouldn't try anything so ridiculous. He had to know he would be caught. Although at 20 years old (and a Democrat) he probably had that old I-am-invincible thing going.

I hope they throw the book at this little turd.

I say where are all those so-called privacy advocates that squeal like stuck pigs whenever we try to conduct surveillance on terror suspects?

Where are all those lefty windbags that howl about the Patriot Act and the evil George BOOSH reading their email and listening to their phone calls?

Chris, MeThinks they're moving a little slow on this case. I don't know what the problem is.

Exactly Dinah, where's the ACLU? Shouldn't they be advocating on behalf of the Palins privacy? Maybe they're only worried about non-Americans rights.

The Left doesn't care one bit about their enemy's privacy. Just follow the outrage to see who is friend and foe to them...
