FBI Raids Home of Alleged Palin Email Hacker

Palin's Email Hacker a university student in Tennessee?

The Wired blog Threat Level is reporting that a student from the University of Tennessee may have claimed to have hacked Sarah Palin's email account by resetting her password using publicly available information to answer the security questions.


The student allegedly posted a first person account of his exploits on a message board. Threat Level declined to publish the individual's real name because the link between the guy and the post is still "tenuous" and the authorities haven't named any suspects. 


Update 2:09pm: Fox is reporting that the FBI served a warrant on the home of David Parnell a UT student and the son of a Democratic state representative
