The cretins at Gawker.com, assisted by members of Obama’s campaign team, have proved once again that the candidate who called for more civility in American politics will go to any length to win the White House, including breaking the law.
In the latest of a series of invasions into Sarah Palin’s personal life, hackers have broken into the Republican vice presidential candidate’s private e-mail account, and a widely read Web site has published screen grabs from it.
An article Wednesday in Gawker.com posts family photos and snapshots of e-mail exchanges the Alaska governor had with colleagues. Gawker says the-email account has since been shut down, but it will leave the images up on its site for all to see.
“Here are the screenshots of the emails saved before the account went dark, along with the contact list. It’s newsworthy and we will not be taking it down!” the site declares.
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.”
As a private entity, Gawker.com has no legal authority whatsoever to hack into a candidate’s computer and steal private, confidential material. The staff at Gawker should be taken into custody immediately and the appropriate charges can be filed against them. The investigation into this incident should not stop with Gawker but should look aggressively into their accomplices within the Obama campaign.
This latest outrage comes on the heels of revelations earlier in the week that the Obama campaign has been pressuring Democrat Hollis French, who is in charge of the investigation into alleged improprieties in the firing of an Alaskan bureaucrat.
As reported by CNN, “Former Palin Press Secretary Meg Stapleton told reporters in Anchorage that the investigation has been “hijacked” by “Obama operatives” for the Democratic presidential nominee — namely, Alaska state Sen. Hollis French, the Democratic lawmaker managing the investigation and an Obama supporter. French has denied working on behalf of the Obama campaign.”
Democrats who have been uncomfortable supporting Barack Obama and his Stormtroopers but felt guilty about voting for McCain-Palin, today had that discomfort replaced by disgust and rage at the lawlessness of Team Obama and his cronies.
