The cesspool deepens

Just when I think the lunacy in the election season in America can't sink any further, I come across this at Michelle Malkin:
Sarah Palin’s private e-mail hacked, family photos raided; cesspool blog gloats
By Michelle Malkin • September 17, 2008 02:59 PM

Scroll for updates…Wired News confirms…

Sometime early this morning, between approximately 3:00am - 4:00am, members of an infamous group of hackers broke into Gov. Sarah Palin’s private Yahoo e-mail account. The incriminating discussion threads included screenshots of Palin’s e-mail and private e-mail addresses of her contacts. The threads have since been deleted.

Hacking e-mail is a federal crime. A TV anchor who broke into his colleague’s e-mail account recently pleaded guilty and faces a maximum five years in prison.

The law will catch up to the hackers, but what about the lowlifes who are now gleefully splashing the alleged contents of Palin’s private e-mail account all over the Internet?

The Gawker smear machine — see here for all the background you need — has posted private family photos of Palin’s children that were apparently stolen from the e-mail account.

They have used Bristol Palin’s illegally obtained private cell phone number from her mom’s private account, recorded her voicemail message, and posted it on their website....

There is more, of course, and you can read that here.

Sarah Palin Private Email Account Hacked By Scumbags

Looks like morons will stop at nothing to continue attacking Sarah Palin, including hacking into her personal email account at yahoo.

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 cache of stolen data contains five screenshots from Palin's account, including the text of an e-mail exchange with Alaskan Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell about his campaign for Congress.

Both Palin's yahoo accounts have now been deleted.

ArtVoice tells us previous idiocy by this group of hackers....

Read more here. I wish I could say I am surprised, but I cannot. I am also not holding my breath for Obama and his campaign to loudly - and SINCERELY - condemn this latest insanity/criminal act.

WHEN is this madness going to end? Is there no depth some 'people' will not stoop to?
