Anonymous Hacks IRS Database — Publishes Romney Tax Returns

Late last night, the mysterious group of hackers known as Anonymous successfully hacked the main database for the Internal Revenue Service. The group appeared to have a singular target- Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Romney has been criticized by both parties for his failure to produce more than one past tax return. According to Ann Romney on ABC’s “Good Morning America” they had no intention of ever disclosing the contents on those returns: “We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life”. Anonymous however, seems to have thought that we “the people” might want to know a little more about the man who seeks the White House

“there has been no year in which Romney paid zero taxes”. In 2008, this was true. He earned $23,425,316 and paid $412.18 in federal income taxes. This calculates to a federal tax rate of 0.0018%. How did Romney get his tax burden so low? According to his return, he had approximately $23,407,000 in itemized deductions. These deductions ranged from $78,923 for “Toupee Creators Unlimited” and $41,826 for “Spray-on tan services” to a $3.8 million dollar write-off for a trip to Las Vegas with potential campaign donors. The Romney family also paid salaries to their numerous employees including, two yacht captains, three pilots for their private jets, two professional dog walkers, one toupee stylist and a “live-in contortionist”. What someone does with a live-in contortionist, one can only speculate. However, the $891,064 Romney spent on an “EWS Donor Party at the Pennsylvania Mansion” might give us a clue. While the return does not indicate what “EWS” stands for, given that the deducted supplies for the party included “Venetian masks, alcohol, lubricant and various Egyptian leather accessories” it was most likely an “Eyes Wide Shut” party

sounds like a fun bloke, gets my vote

Something anyone standing for office anywhere ought to be grown up enough to understand is that the opposition WILL turn the planet inside out to see if there is any financial of sexual mud to sling. Stonewalling or concealing never works and brings the candidate's Party into disrepute and makes thjose who chsoe him look stupid.

That said, people like Clinton and JFK have survived all manner of evidence about shady property deals and games in the Oval office broom cupboard so some people are born to the Teflon if not to the purple.

The US purient interest in their politicians love/sex lives is pretty funny when you compare it to some of the stuff that the European heads of state etc get up to.

The French president is married but lives with his girlfriend while the German president dumps his wife for a newer verison and does it during a speech and there are many more examples.

.. and Berlusconi ..

And what was concealed that was only let out later, like

The not readily believable discovery that Major was humping Edwina Currie. I mean, John Major??? Who'd have thought he had it in him.

And Heath being a practising poof.

And I'm not sure that staying married to Cherie B isn't a form of perversion.
