Wow. Yet another hard lesson that the internet is not anonymous.
Carlos Lam sent an e-mail from his private Hotmail account suggesting faking an attack on Walker to make the protesters look bad. He denied it initially, in the That is extreme, I would never say that! kind of way. He said someone hacked into his account. The detective asked for his internet service provider so they could check. He refused to give her the name. Um, he sure likes flags because this other one was red.
He came clean of course when he realized there was no getting around this one. Dang. I wonder if he knew he was screwed when the open-records settlement granted AP’s request for access to Walker’s e-mails.
If you have a really great career as a deputy prosecutor, you might want to be a little more careful. Especially in the age of computer forensics.
