The FBI is stepping up its investigation into the possibility that a
University of Tennessee student hacked into the personal e-mail of Vice
Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
A person who identified himself as a witness tells 10 News that agents
with the FBI served a federal search warrant at the Fort Sanders
residence of David Kernell early Sunday morning. Kernell lives in the
Commons apartment complex at 1115 Highland Ave.
David Kernell is the son of Mike Kernell, a Democratic state
representative from Memphis.
A Department of Justice spokesperson confirmed there has been
"investigatory activity" in Knoxville regarding the Palin case, but she
said there are no publicly available search warrants, and no charges
have been filed.
