As Gawker reports, the private yahoo e-mails accounts of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin have been hacked.

“This is a shocking invasion of the governor’s privacy and a violation of the law,” said McCain campaign manager Rick Davis in a statement. "The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these e-mails will destroy them. We will have no further comment."

As we covered yesterday, Palin has used her private e-mail account to conduct official business and, like members of the Bush administration before her, has attempted to use this as a way to avoid the very transparency she pledged would mark her gubernatorial term.
