This is kind of funny:

Ignore emails from Sen. Adolpho Palacios

Pacific Daily News July 8, 2008

11:35 a.m. - Sen. Adolpho Palacios is urging residents to ignore any suspicious emails from his account because it has been "hacked."

Some residents received emails yesterday from claiming the senator was stuck in London and needed a load to pay for hotel bills and a flight home. The email is untrue.

Palacios said he couldn't access the email account to stop the emails. He planned to abandon the account.

"The unknown person changed my password," he said. "So I am locked out."

Palacios said he had not secured a new email address but would as soon as he found something "safe."
