Palin explains her actions in Ruedrich case (2004)

Lots of buzz about how Sarah Palin once hacked into Republican boss Randy Ruedrich’s computer back in 2004 at the request of Alaska’s Attorney General. (She was looking for evidence that he’d broken a state ethics law while he was a member of the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission.)

As a mom with two daughters, I’m proud that we finally have a woman VP candidate again — but I’m even more proud that the technician was a woman.  ;- )
