A hacker has stolen personal e-mails and photographs belonging to the 41st US President, George HW Bush, according to a spokesman for the Bush family.

"We do not comment on matters under criminal investigation," Jim McGrath told the Houston Chronicle.

The hacker is said to have broken into several accounts of the Bush family. One of the photographs stolen from the accounts is of the former President in a hospital bed, as he was being treated for a bronchitis-related cough.

Another shows his son, 43rd President George W Bush, posing beside a cardboard cut-out of himself with a moustache drawn on it, while other show painting by him.

Speaking with the Smoking Gun, the hacker said he had taken "a lot of stuff" including "interesting mails" about the former president's time in hospital.

The e-mails reportedly include a note sent by President Barack Obama to George HW Bush while he was in hospital.

"A hacked"??? Should be "A hacker". I guess no one proof reads or uses a spell checker these days.
The "hacker" is in more trouble than he thinks.

I did, I missed it... spell check wouldn't pick up "hacked" since it is not misspelled. Thanks.
