Sarah Palin

So which is worse…

|


…that the highest ranking public official in Alaska was using private email accounts to conduct official state business so she'd be less susceptible to open records laws and subpoenas, or some dumb kid guessing her personal information, enabling him to change her password and access that account?

What does it say that the latter is facing charges, but the former isn't?

NOTE:  I amended this post to exclude the word "illegal."  It isn't clear Palin's use of private accounts for state business was a violation of the letter of the law.  If she deleted emails in those accounts, it likely was.  But she refuses to turn over emails from those accounts in open records requests, so it's probably not possible to know. What is clear is that she wasn't all that serious about her gubernatorial campaign promise for "open and transparent" government.
