Democratic Lawmaker's Son Suspect In Palin E-Mail Hacking
The son of State Rep. Mike Kernell (D-Memphis, TN), David Kernell, is the leading suspect in Tuesday's hacking of Gov. Sarah Palin's Yahoo e-mail account according to the Knoxville News-Sentinel. Kernell is a student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Kernell made the mistake of posting his e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org, which was quickly traced back to him. Rep. Kernell is supporting Obama's presidential campaign in the state of Tennessee.
