Palin says PAC website attacked by WikiLeaks supporters

Sarah Palin has told ABC News that WikiLeaks supporters seeking revenge for the arrest of founder Julian Assange have cyberattacked her SarahPAC.com site and disrupted credit card accounts of her and husband Todd.

"No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange's antics," Palin e-mailed. "This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts." ...

A SarahPAC.com technical aide said that "on our server log this morning it showed the attacks coming from a browser identified as wikileaks.org. It has since spread to others entitled ‘anonymous.' "

Added SarahPAC aide Rebecca Mansour, "The governor voiced her opinion knowing full well that she was speaking out against a shady disreputable organization with no regard for laws or human life. This is how they operate. The world should not be intimidated by them."

Palin recently wrote that Assange should be pursued by authorities "with the same urgency we pursue Al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders."
