Hackers claim to have Romney's tax returns.

And will release them at the end of September unless a ransom is paid?

Whaaaat?

Hacker Group Claims to Have Romney’s Tax Returns
by Fernando Alfonso III
September 5, 2012

Mitt Romney’s tax returns are reportedly in the hands of a team of hackers who plan on releasing them publicly at the end of the month unless a ransom is paid.

The group allegedly obtained the files from PricewaterhouseCooper’s Tennessee office on Aug. 25, in what was described on PasteBin as a Mission Impossible-like caper:

Quote:
Romney’s 1040 tax returns were taken from the PWC office 8/25/2012 by gaining access to the third floor via a gentleman working on the 3rd floor of the building. Once on the 3rd floor, the team moved down the stairs to the 2nd floor and setup shop in an empty office room. During the night, suite 260 was entered, and all available 1040 tax forms for Romney were copied. A package was sent to the PWC on suite 260 with a flash drive containing a copy of the 1040 files, plus copies were sent to the Democratic office in the county and copies were sent to the GOP office in the county at the beginning of the week also containing flash drives with copies of Romney’s tax returns before 2010. A scanned signature image for Mitt Romney from the 1040 forms were scanned and included with the packages, taken from earlier 1040 tax forms gathered and stored on the flash drives.
The files are to be released to the public on Sept. 28, according to the PasteBin document.

The release, however, could allegedly be avoided if Romney’s camp were to wire transfer $1 million in Bitcoins — an online currency that is difficult both to trace and to identify.

“The keys to unlock the data will be purged and whatever is inside the documents will remain a secret forever,” states another PasteBin document. “Failure to do this before September 28, the entire world will be allowed to view the documents with a publicly released key to unlock everything. And the same time, the other interested parties will be allowed to compete with you.”

A call to to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Tennessee office was not immediately returned.

Romney’s tax returns have been a lightning rod for criticism from President Barack Obama and Democrats like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who claimed that the presidential hopeful hasn’t paid taxes for more than a decade.

“Never in modern American history has a presidential candidate tried so hard to hide himself from the people he hopes to serve,” Reid said in a speech at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday.

So far, Romney has released a tax return for 2010 and plans on doing so for his 2011 filing. He has refused to release any returns from before 2010.

“I pay all the taxes that are legally required and not a dollar more,” Romney said in a debate in January, according to the New York Times. “I don’t think you want someone as the candidate for president who pays more taxes than he owes.”

Actually it could be a particularly smelly but effective political tactic. Just release a false return and watch the idiots flock to it.

So he then either releases his returns which a of course some people will call fakes and give the Democrats the chance to go though them line by line and created misleading accusations and falsehoods by the score.

I mean you don’t really want to get into this debate of Obama has "created" 4 .5 million jobs when it is just as accurate to say there are actually 400,000 people less working now than when he took office.

Maybe Obama can pay a ransom to have jobs reports suppressed until the election.

It would be smarter to wait a month and release a statement saying, 'Nice doing business with you!'

It would make Romney look weak, while being nearly impossible to disprove.

I could believe an employee leaked them, but that story is ridiculous. I doubt they even exist in printed form. These kinds of things would probably be scanned into a document storage system and then shredded. Going back a decade, they would have been electronically filed. There is a point of implausibility in nearly every sentence.

If this had happened, there would be video, card access records, system access records - access to document storage systems is probably logged. It would not be very hard to find the person who did it.

Color me skeptical. Might be an effective political dirty trick to run this scam though.

Secret Service is apparently looking into this now. Rumor is Myth Romney was caught with a flashlight changing a 6 to an 8.
