News broke and circulated widely on the internet that Sarah Palin's private Yahoo email account had been hacked and publicized some of its contents on the Wikileaks Web site by "Anonymous", who exposed the “Church” of Scientology’s dark side.
Palin has since deleted both accounts simultaneously,the previously accessible public profiles for gov.sarah@yahoo and the private e-mail address gov.palin@yahoo.
The offending posts, screenshots, unseen family photos, and emails have all been deleted from Imageshack and 4Chan, but gawker.com has some screenshots of the emails saved before the account were deleted, along with the contact list.
McCain-Palin 2008 Campaign Manager Rick Davis issued the following statement :
"This is 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 emails will destroy them. We will have no further comment."
