On Tuesday, Gawker published George W. Bush's private email address and encouraged readers to "wish George W. Bush a Happy Iraq War Day." They stated that readers should email him and "let him know that you're thinking of him today." 

A hacker, who goes by the name of Guccifer, has hacked several politicians' email exchanges and social media pages in the past. Most recently he exposed Hillary Clinton's email exchanges regarding the Benghazi attacks. And Guccifer is the same hacker that released Bush's oil paintings.Gawkereditor John Cook found Bush's private email address while browsing the screenshots of these exchanges published by the hacker.

What better time to expose it to the public?
