Bush Family Emails Hacked (PHOTOS)

A hacker has apparently obtained email correspondence and photos from the Bush family related to former President George H.W. Bush’s hospital stay late last year, The Smoking Gun reported Thursday.

At least six email accounts were hacked, including the account of Dorothy Bush Koch, daughter of George H.W. Bush, according to the report. The hacker obtained a photo of George H.W. Bush in the hospital, as well as photos of paintings allegedly by former President George W. Bush.

George H.W. Bush’s spokesman, Jim McGrath, confirmed to TPM that the hack has prompted a criminal investigation. The Secret Service is investigating the matter, spokesman Ed Donovan told ABC News
