David Kernell, the son of a Tennessee Democratic Lawmaker, broke into Sara Palin’s email during the 2008 election.
A jury today convicted the dirty tricks Democrat operative of obstruction of justice and unauthorized access to a computer, but he was acquitted on a charge of wire fraud.
The jury deadlocked on the Identity Theft charge, which could be filed again.
Kernell faces 20 years for the obstruction charge.
Let’s hope the maximum sentence is meted out to deter this type of behavior in the future. Democrats must learn that hacking into private information of Republicans is a crime, be it Sarah Palin, or Joe the Plumber.
