On September 16th Sara Palin’s Yahoo e-mail account was hacked by 20-year-old David Kernell, the son of Democratic Tennessee State representative Mike Kernell. David hacked Sara Palin’s account by impersonating her online, a process done by guessing at personal facts and looking up public information available on her. After that David simply invented his own password, granting him access to her account.

So David posted 5 screen shots at WikiLeaks where government leaked secrets are usually found. Some of the screen shots included Sara Palin’s e-mail contacts, and family photos, and from there the pictures spread across the web. After it was to late the FBI started a private investigation in the matter. David knew he would eventually be caught so he turned himself in, and is now facing 5 years in prison. Of course nothing is certain until David goes to court on December 16.
