All Your Emails Belong to Us

September 22, 2008

Wednesday afternoon the hacker group “Anonymous” posted the content Sarah Palin’s yahoo email account to the media gossip site Gawker.  The Gawker post tries to validate the reasons for the group to hacking into her private email.

…the account has been deleted! Which is, as we said, maybe destruction of evidence? So for now this is, we think, all we’ll get to see from this email account…

While this incident is a HUGE breech of privacy, it brings up a legitimate question; why is Palin conducting government business on her personal email?

One reason that seems to be on everyone’s mind; Palin’s government email is public record, her private email is not. So it looks like she is hiding evidence when she uses her private email.
