Jeb Bush spokesman denounces hacking of family e-mail

(CNN) – The spokeswoman for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on Saturday condemned the e-mail hacking and disclosure of private messages exchanged between members of the Bush family.

"This is an outrageous breach of privacy that is the matter of a criminal investigation, so we will not be commenting further," she said in a statement to CNN.

The e-mails, posted on a gossip website on Thursday, included messages from President George H.W. Bush and President George W. Bush and included private photographs and contact information.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said the agency is investigating.

    George W. Bush authorized many illegal wiretaps. The excuse was "if you have nothing to hide, you should not mind". The irony here is great.

    Even though hacking is wrong. We sure know the Bush family has a lot to hide. Hope it fianlly for sure comes out that the Bushes did know Sept 11th was coming. I mean he will still be counted as the worst president anyway or at least the puppet of Cheney and the Neocons. 200 billion dollar war debt for nothing. Wonder where those weapons of mass destruction are ????

    I think this is funny. It is a case of "what goes around, comes around". Bush and shrub, as presidents, thought it is perfectly ok for the feds to spy upon its citizens by listening in on phone conversations and going through our emails. Heaven forbid that someone should do the same to them. It serves them right. I can only guess that jeb is upset because private emails might just show how truly stupid shrub is.
