Nobody like those "muchachones" of the G2 and the University of Informatic Sciences to hack blogs, break into the dissidents' electronic mail boxes, and hijack their computers.
The Obamumistas don't lag that far behind: David Kernell, 20, the son of a Democratic Tennessee state lawmaker (Representative Michael Kernel, from Memphis) pleaded not guilty Wednesday to hacking the e-mail account of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
The hacker faces a maximum of five years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release if convicted, in his trial scheduled for December 16, 2008.
Let's see what the press cable say about it.
"The investigation is continuing. The indictment said at least one other person successfully reset Palin's e-mail password and accessed her e-mail account after the hacker named "rubico," whom the government contends is Kernell, posted his exploits on the Web.
"I wouldn't say specifically whether that other individual may be charged or not," Justice Department spokeswoman Laura Sweeney said from Washington.
U.S. Magistrate Judge C. Clifford Shirley restricted Kernell from discussing the case with any potential witnesses, which include his roommates.
Kernell was also restricted from having any contact directly or indirectly with the Alaska governor or her family.
Shirley warned that if Kernell violated any part of his release conditions, he would be held until the trial.
Kernell's attorney, Wade Davies, accompanied his client in court.
"As soon as we found out about the charges this morning, David voluntarily turned himself in," said Davies, who refused to answer any other questions.
The indictment alleges that on Sept. 16 Kernell reset the password to Palin's personal e-mail account to gain access to it. Authorities say Kernell then read the contents of the account and made screenshots of the e-mail directory, e-mail content and other personal information, later posting some of the information to a public Web site."
Isn't this wonderful?
The democratic party operatives use all possible and illegal means to hijack the e-mail account of a Governor, and the press treats it with leniency. The only thing that we are missing here is that the electronic vandal is treated like a folk hero. Well, he's been already treated like a folk hero by the Obamunistas. The same technique has been used in Cuba where the private e-mails from dissidents have appeared on tv shows and the press. Is this just a coincidence? Isn't this equivalent to Watergate?
Don't complain after your liberties are violated if you vote for the One!
