The man who guessed the password on Sarah Palin's personal email account and posted details online when she was a nominee for vice president in 2008, died last week in California.
David Kernell, 30, died of complications related to progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) late Friday or early Saturday, according to a statement his family released on Thursday.
His family shared that Kernell had been diagnosed with MS in 2014 and began participating in clinical research trials at the Cedars-Sinai Neurosciences Research Center in Los Angeles. He hoped to help develop cures and treatments for other victims of MS, the page-long statement detailed.
Despite what the Palins would have had you believe, Kernell was actually a very kind and giving individual.
'David did not let this incident define him,' the family said, according to Commercial Appeal.
'He returned to UT Knoxville to complete his economics degree and further refined his programming skills by helping his local community.
'He first volunteered his expertise to Tennessee Voices for Children, a child advocacy non-profit group. Later, he moved to California and worked to develop facial recognition software that could identify children at risk of abuse.'
So he actually did something positive with his life, and DIDN'T just try to sell crappy diet products on the internet?
I think everybody here knows the story of the then 20 year old easily guessing Palin's password and then anonymously bragging about it on the internet, which then led to Palin calling it "worse than Watergate" and taking Bristol to Tennessee to lie to the courts about being terrified even though at the time the Secret Service were patrolling their property in Wasilla.
This led to Kernell receiving a felony charge and spending 10 months of his short life behind bars, all for a college prank.
She tried to destroy this young man's life, as she has tried to destroy so many others before and after him.
And now he's dead.
