Looks like it took them all of one day to track down the hacker. Like I said in my post yesterday, I hope you have a good lawyer. David Kernell son of Tennessee State Rep Mike Kernell (D) is the hacker. They tracked him down by his e-mail address which is now posted all over the internet. Oh the irony. Here it is
firstname.lastname@example.org feel free to send him your thoughts on the situation. Although by now he's probably closed the account. His father's information is also all over the net. I'll show a little class and not post that information here although you can get it in about 100 other places.
Believe it or not the kid didn't seem to realize the seriousness of the action until after the deed was done. It wasn't until after he broke into Palin's account that he realized the seriousness of the offense."it finally set in, THIS internet was serious business," he wrote.

I'm sure the mainstream media will pick up on this story tomorrow. After they do maybe some more info will come out. If there is anything more to this story I'll report on it then.
