I believe as I'm sure many others do also, if they wanted to find out who it was who sent that message they could have. Who ever it was is a real idiot. Too me when you are at your place of employment you keep your personal opinions to yourself. I am not real tech savvy but I know if I were to send a really hateful message it probably wouldn't be hard for it to be traced back to me. You would think the people who work in that office wouldn't be that stupid but obviously at least one of them is.
hypothesis: message could be send through an interface or a time setting self terminating program was fed into computer before which send the the message while the user was not available.if person is identified may be men behind that motive need to be tracked.The reality should come out by this time.If threat is found the wishes can be full filled so that such comments can be avoided and the responsible will feel more realized.
keeping you honest: Senator Chambliss hate mail.
FYI, if the computers in the Senators office are connected via a router, the IP address you show will be the IP for the router and not the individual computer. So determining the computer is not as simple as you show.
Secondly, if the message was sent via e-mail, it is possible to delete the individual e-mail off the computer. If sent via a web page, such as this, it is also possible, but more complicated, to delete only the browsing history for that particular page.
Conclusion, the investigation may not be as simple as you think!
They're holding the sender responsible just like our former administration did for those who who outed Valerie Plame.
