If you haven't heard the news yet, don't worry you aren't alone. This broke online late on a Friday (which happened to be the Friday after the debate). dKos12 candidate Ginny Schrader had her campaign hacked. The firewall "caught" Campaign Solutions, internet firm to Bush, the RNC, the NRCC and about a third of the Republican caucus. Then the lying began:
Denying hacking Ginny

Donatelli said she believes it is impossible for someone in her company to hack into Schrader's campaign computer without Donatelli's knowledge. She said no one associated with her firm has ever been accused of hacking in the past.
Hockaday Donatelli Campaign Solutions, the firm that maintains the Hillaryno.com site, denied any involvement in hacking the rival site and said it was unaware of the maneuver until contacted by a reporter. "This is not a good thing," said Becky Donatelli, cochair of the Virginia-based consulting firm that has built Web sites for a large number of Republican candidates."
