Sorry, headline of this article is an old tech geek joke. . . .
Sarah Palin’s email account was hacked into. You know, the one she used to communicate official business whilst skirting document retention laws? Yeah, that one. And here’s the really funny bit. Check out the McHacked-Failin ’08 campaign’s reaction:
“This is a shocking invasion of the Governor’s privacy and a violation of law,” GOP presidential campaign manager Rick Davis said Wednesday in a written statement. “The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these emails will destroy them.”
OIC. . . So, cracking Sarah Palin’s clandestine gubinatorial email account was a violation of law because it’s a violation of privacy. Except that there’s really no privacy with government communications, which is why she’s not supposed to be using that email account in the first place. Right?
Now, I’m not suggsting that you should go rooting through what’s there, but I will say that if you did want to look, you’d better do it quick.
