Palin furious about email theft.
Rick Davis, campaign manager for John McCain, released a statement calling the publication a “shocking invasion of the governor’s privacy and a violation of law.”
“The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these e-mails will destroy them. We will have no further comment,” Davis said.
The Peter Rost blog has the following thought . . . perhaps if Ms. Palin hadn't tried to hide official business among personal e-mails to avoid getting them scrutinized, hackers would never have come up with this idea. After all, no one hacked McCain's email. Oh yeah, sorry, he doesn't know how to use e-mail, nor a computer.
It's already been widely reported that Palin and her associates used their private emails for conducting government business, in order to avoid the archiving and oversight that governmental email addresses are subject to.
The governor's Yahoo account is "the most nonsensical, inane thing I've ever heard of," said Andree McLeod, who is appealing the administration's decision to withhold e-mails.
