    then the truth of it will be clear.  The account does seem within the realm of plausibility -- Rove is arrogant enough to have tried such a ploy and careless enough to have gotten hacked.  If the Protectors want to pursue this, Rove's goose is cooked and the outcry could stimulate federal law to make future elections more manipulation proof.  We shall see.  Am I the only one who thinks that the letter from the hackers was not written in fully idiomatic English?

      Like people that don't speak English as a native language tend to write.

      I notice it says at the end of the letter that they would turn in information to London if Rove didn't cease and desist. That does not sound like US people.

        iow, Wikileaks.
        I came away with a different impression.
        Someone(s) well educated, with a bent for poetic romance, humor and 'dramatica' wrote that. The references to ships and plunder are rifs on AntiSec.
