It’s bad enough that Sarah Palin is using a private Yahoo! email account to conduct state business to circumvent public records laws, but she also apparently chooses some pretty easy to guess passwords. The group calling itself “Anonymous” managed to hack her email account:
The internet griefers known as Anonymous took credit for the intrusion, and screenshots of e-mail messages and photos belonging to the Alaska governor have been published by WikiLeaks. Threat Level has confirmed the authenticity of at least one of the e-mails.
The e-mail, a message of support to Palin, tells her not to let negative press get to her and asks Palin to pray for McCorkell, who writes that “I need strength to 1. keep employment, 2. not have to choose.”
The Republican Party hasn’t responded to a call for comment, but McCorkell, reached at her office, confirmed that she did send the e-mail to Palin.
Good to know state secrets will be in such good hands if she becomes VP, eh?
