Palin to Testify at Hacking Trial

Does Sarah Palin swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? You betcha! The former governor of Alaska is set to testify at the trial of David Kernell, the 22-year-old University of Tennessee student who stands accused of hacking her email account during the 2008 presidential campaign. The son of a Tennessee Democrat faces four felony charges—identity theft, wire fraud, intentionally accessing an email account without authorization, and obstructing an FBI investigation—and up to 50 years in prison. Jury selection begins Tuesday and Palin’s testimony could follow soon after.
