Bush Family E-Mails Hacked
Several members of the Bush family have fallen victim to a hacking attack:
Several email accounts owned by members of the Bush family or their close friends have been hacked, a family spokesman confirms. A criminal investigation into the hack is underway.
The emails, posted by the Smoking Gun Web site, include a picture from former president George H.W. Bush’s recent hospital stay and detailed exchanges among his children about his condition. Pictures of George W. Bush’s oil paintings and family snapshots are included. There are also personal details such as emails, phone numbers and addresses for multiple members of the Bush family.
The story was first uncovered by The Smoking Gun, which has a story up this morning detailing some of what was apparently uncovered, part of which included conversations among the children of President George H.W. Bush during the time he was in the hospital during the last two months of 2012. According to the report, the elder Bush’s condition was such that, at some point, discussions were being had about the former President’s funeral and eulogy.
No word yet on who may have been behind this rather audacious invasion of privacy. Hopefully, they’ll be tracked down and prosecuted accordingly.
