Strange Bedfellows

Today’s revelation that a computer hacker had broken into Sarah Palin’s personal email account could have some interesting repercussions in New Jersey.

Supporters of the Republican vice-presidential candidate contend that this represents an invasion of privacy, but others have no problem with disclosure of the emails since several of them apparently were about official government business in Alaska. This latter argument sounds surprisingly similar to the case being made by New Jersey Republicans, who are in court attempting to have some of the Democratic governor’s email made public.

If the Palin emails continue to be an issue, could the NJ Republicans back off their case — at least until after election day — for fear of sending conflicting messages to the public during what most likely will be an extremely clse presidential election?
