Dem Lawmaker’s Son Probed in Palin E-Mail Hack

The Knoxville News-Sentinel and Nashville Tennessean are reporting that David Kernell, 20-year-old son of Tennessee state Rep. Mike Kernell (D-Memphis) is at the center of an investigation into the hacking of Sarah Palin’s personal e-mail account.

The younger Kernell, a student at the University of Tennessee, was identified by several bloggers based on his Internet handle “rubico10.” Michelle Malkin has more., including a report by Computerworld that a Georgia-based Web operator is cooperating with federal authorities in the investigation.

UPDATE: Memphis TV reporter Shane Myers posted this photo of Kernell and reports that Memphis talk radio host Mike Fleming of WREC is on the story.

Multiple news organizations are now following up on this story, and a blogger who helped identify “rubico10” tells me he has been contacted by a newspaper reporter.
