An individual poster, an Obama supporter, at 4chan has claimed credit after the action took an unexpected turn. Another poster contacted one the addressees about the compromised passwords and told that person to warn the Governor. Shortly thereafter, the Yahoo accounts were shutdown. Bristol Palin's private cell phone number was also listed and several calls were placed to the number.
The Obama guy calls himself rubico, firstname.lastname@example.org. Michelle Malkin has the story from one of her readers who monitors the site in question. According to the monitor, rubico left this comment at the original offending web page, /b/ (bolding is mine) :
rubico 09/17/08(Wed)12:57:22 No.85782652Obligatorily, I am outraged by the disgraceful and criminal behavior of Obama supporters. Truth is, I'm not surprised by anything the Democrats, Liberals, Clintonistas, and Obamites do anymore. One should never be surprised that criminals without shame do shameless criminal things.
Hello, /b/ as many of you might already know, last night sarah palin’s yahoo was “hacked” and caps were posted on /b/, i am the lurker who did it, and i would like to tell the story.
In the past couple days news had come to light about palin using a yahoo mail account, it was in news stories and such, a thread was started full of newfags trying to do something that would not get this off the ground, for the next 2 hours the acct was locked from password recovery presumably from all this bullshit spamming.
after the password recovery was reenabled, it took seriously 45 mins on wikipedia and google to find the info, Birthday? 15 seconds on wikipedia, zip code? well she had always been from wasilla, and it only has 2 zip codes (thanks online postal service!)
the second was somewhat harder, the question was “where did you meet your spouse?” did some research, and apparently she had eloped with mister palin after college, if youll look on some of the screenshits that I took and other fellow anon have so graciously put on photobucket you will see the google search for “palin eloped” or some such in one of the tabs.
I found out later though more research that they met at high school, so I did variations of that, high, high school, eventually hit on “Wasilla high” I promptly changed the password to popcorn and took a cold shower…

this is all verifiable if some anal /b/tard wants to think Im a troll, and there isn’t any hard proof to the contrary, but anyone who had followed the thread from the beginning to the 404 will know I probably am not, the picture I posted this topic with is the same one as the original thread.
I read though the emails… ALL OF THEM… before I posted, and what I concluded was anticlimactic, there was nothing there, nothing incriminating, nothing that would derail her campaign as I had hoped, all I saw was personal stuff, some clerical stuff from when she was governor…. And pictures of her family
I then started a topic on /b/, peeps asked for pics or gtfo and I obliged, then it started to get big
Earlier it was just some prank to me, I really wanted to get something incriminating which I was sure there would be, just like all of you anon out there that you think there was some missed opportunity of glory, well there WAS NOTHING, I read everything, every little blackberry confirmation… all the pictures, and there was nothing, and it finally set in, THIS internet was serious business, yes I was behind a proxy, only one, if this shit ever got to the FBI I was fucked, I panicked, i still wanted the stuff out there but I didn’t know how to rapidshit all that stuff, so I posted the pass on /b/, and then promptly deleted everything, and unplugged my internet and just sat there in a comatose state
Then the white knight fucker came along, and did it in for everyone, I trusted /b/ with that email password, I had gotten done what I could do well, then passed the torch , all to be let down by the douchebaggery, good job /b/, this is why we cant have nice things
The FBI, Secret Service, and a dozen other agencies of the Federal alphabet soup are already on the case. By morning they should already have the culprit. Rubico didn't exactly try to hide, he had only one level of anonymity.
The fascinating thing here is that the Obama operative says he was looking for stuff to bring down the Palin candidacy. He read all the e-mails, all the Blackberries, looked at all the pictures and found nothing, nothing at all.
The law abiding among us are pissed because of the wanton lawbreaking by Obama operatives. The Obamites are pissed because they found nothing incriminating. Palin is clean and they can't stand it.
