Sarah Palin In Knoxville, Testifying in Tennessee E-Mail Hacker Case

[Updated] Sarah Palin is in Knoxville today testifying in the Yahoo e-mail hacker case against David Kernell. Kernell is apparently enjoying the attention, or so it seems in light of his incredibly self-centered juvenile remark about Bristol Palin not being his type. Gawd help the women who are this arrogant young fool's "type."

Todd Palin will also testify today:

Memphis Commercial Appeal: KNOXVILLE - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is testifying in U.S. District Court against a former University of Tennessee student charged with illegally accessing her private e-mail account. . An FBI agent testified Thursday that files were deleted, the Internet history dumped and folders emptied a day after her e-mail account was illegally accessed. . Kernell is charged with four felonies including identity theft and wire fraud.

WaPo: Palin told jurors she was in Michigan campaigning as the Republican vice presidential candidate when she first learned from a news report that her e-mail had been hacked. A few minutes later, her campaign manager and a Secret Service agent told her the report was true, she testified. David Kernell, the 22-year-old son of a Democratic Tennessee lawmaker, faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted of identity theft, mail fraud and two other felony charges.
