A federal judge refused to throw out the convictions of David Kernell, who was found guilty in April of unauthorized access to a computer and obstruction of justice arising from his hacking into Gov. Palin's private email accounts during the McCain-Palin 2008 campaign, according to widespread reports. Kernell's lawyer is appealing to a higher court. Kernell could serve 15 to 21 months in a federal prison. His sentencing date is October 29, 2010.
Kernell is the son of a Tennessee Democrat. In what he claims was a "prank," he hacked into Gov. Palin's private email accounts and broadcast screen shots including identifiable information of key personal and professional contacts all over the Internet. Screen shots were also picked up by the press and shown on national TV. Not satisfied with merely violating Gov. Palin's privacy by these actions Kernell also posted the reset password to the breached account, allowing others to access and gain control over it, which one person did.
Bristol Palin will be delivering a pro-life speech Thursday, September 30, 2010 at the Visalia [California] Convention Center Main Hall, according to Gerard Carroll, reporter for the VisaliaTimes-Delta.

"There's no doubt that her [Bristol's] celebrity helps to promote abstinence," said Bill Albert, spokesman for the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. "She is the most famous unwed teen mother in the world today."Bristol is a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. She returned to Wasilla with dance partner Mark Ballas, and was greeted by a throng of adoring fans.

US for Palin and venues where its content is syndicated broke both the Facebook page establishment and 1,000 friends milestone stories. As of this writing, Bristol has 2,448 Facebook friends.

Gov. Sean Parnell, Lt.

KTUU and Miller both acknowledged the importance of Gov. Palin to helping them achieve their respective successes. Gov. Parnell ascended to his current position via Gov. Palin's resignation last year. Her endorsement of Joe Miller pulled him ahead of Lisa Murkowski and brought in over $500,000 in Tea Party money to his campaign.
