So, you know those Yahoo accounts Sarah Palin was using to keep her official business safe from subpoenas? Turns out they’re not so safe after all. Palin’s Yahoo accounts (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) were successfully hacked last night and you can see the screengrabs here. Since then, the accounts have been deleted, which could be considered destruction of evidence if a court chose to pursue it.
The evidence, at first glance, looks pretty solid that the accounts were authentic. Photos of Palin’s family were pulled from e-mails, plus a “sent” e-mail to aide Amy McCorkell was confirmed by a call to McCorkell herself, reports Wired.
Who knew the GOP was so in favor of government transparency? Maybe the McCain/Palin team is a real “maverick” ticket after all.
