Sarah Palin, who called WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as "an anti-American operative with blood on his hands," said on Wednesday, Dec 8 that the hackers tried to attack her website SarahPAC.
Palin said in an email sent to ABC News that personal credit card accounts for her and her husband were "disrupted."
"No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange's antics. This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts," said Palin in the email.
Earlier on Wednesday, WikiLeaks supporters had hacked the website of Visa Mastercard, which refused to take donations to WikiLeaks.
