Skip to comments.Anonymous group allegedly hacked Romney tax records via Franklin firm
Posted on 09/05/2012 8:26:41 AM PDT by tsowellfan
An anonymous individual or group is alleging that they have gained "all available 1040 tax forms" of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney by accessing computers in the Franklin office of the professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.
An anonymous posting on a file sharing website states that PwC has been hacked. This same website has been used by hackers who have claimed to have infiltrated computers from companies like Apple in the past.

The Chosen One is probably behind this. He knows no bounds because he is exempt from the limitations of mankind because he thinks he is a god. Time to begin the investigation to trace the end source, find out the distribution path and begin filing the lawsuits.
What a coincidence. I actually have access to “all available 1040 forms” for George Soros, Warren Buffett and Barry Bonds (which equal exactly zero)
So Obama has these docs obtained through a illegal hacker. Isnt it illegal to obtain or have possession of such docs?
I think their servers are getting hammered since Drudge linked them. I’ll have to wait a while to get on. Thanks for the link! :-)
I tried to access it too, and finally gave up.
The link worked fine until I posted it on FreeRepublic
I’m not completely convinced.
Is that one of those weekly papers with all the nasty sex ads in the back and snarky, leftist articles by college drop-outs and other assorted stoners, along with ads for bongs, rolling papers, gay bars and trade schools?
Two words: Eric Holder
I call B.S.!
It’s a setup for “If these aren’t your real tax returns, prove it by showing us your real ones”....
Obama has nothing to do with this, he has thousands of lemmings who will jump off cliffs to die for him. So Romney's taxes will be released via a wikileak kind of operation? Not that much of a surprise as long as David Axelroad can maintain (I promise you he is 3rd 4th 5th removed) plausible deniability
If they had them now, they wouldn’t release them until October 30. They would keep their mouth shut until it matters.
But do you have our FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT’s school records?
Social security card application from Connecticut?
Hussein’s passport application to allow travel to Pakistan?
How about after he was an Indonesian citizen, his application to restore US citizenship?
The link worked fine until I posted it on FreeRepublic
Well, there ya’ go! LOL! ;-)
I guess that mean he filed his taxes... LOL!
If true I hope Romney owns the firm
No, it is not.
Obama would not need to use a Wikileaks hacker.
With one phone call he could have all Federal records on any individual delivered to the West Wing.
I dont thin Romney has anything to hide. nothingas bad as Obama is hiding ...and why use a proxy to buy your house..as I am hearing the obamas are doing..
“If they had them now, they wouldnt release them until October 30. They would keep their mouth shut until it matters.”
I see it differently. If they had Romney’s taxes, they would release one ‘scandalous’ item from them, every few days. The idea would be to keep Romney on the defensive, all the time, for the next 60 days. That’s the whole reason Romneywon’t release them...he’d be spending all his time explaining legitimate tax deductions to the sheeple.
I doubt this outfir has anything...especially if all they have is the 1040’s. The 1040’s alone would prove Harry wrong (surely Romney paid taxes), but wouldn’t have all the schedules to cherry pick half truths from.
Yes, but then it’d be known who did it. This way, there is plausible deniability.
If true...can we not find a “Conservative Hackmeister” to hack into the Harvard and Columbia records for Obozo’s grades?
And he probably already has. But he can't make them public.
He could give them to someone else who can claim to have gotten them by hacking a server.
I think this is entirely false. I found a few articles saying that the source of this was a originally a satire article.
But even if it is true. It will blow up in their face. They won’t find anything significant.
I think that they will keep building up on this “he won’t release his taxes” so there must be something he is obviously hiding.
Then Romney will release his taxes and they will find nothing, nadda, zip. And the Democrats will Look like the fools that they are once again.
I agree with everything you said
They are selling the docs for $1 million. At least that is the way I understood from the article.
I agree. Nothing is easier than creating a tax form and putting any figures in it you decide. There is absolutely no way to prove the forms the show (if they do show them)are legitimate unless the IRS confirms them, which they will not or Romney confirms them which he will not.
He did the same to Ryan in the Illinois Senate election -— stealing sealed divorce records.
Ah, I see you get the Sacramento Snooze and Review in your area, too.
An excerpt from one message states:
“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 group will release all available files to the public on the 28 of September, 2012.”
Sounds more like Obama obtained records from IRS?.
And nobody cares.
So it's your fault, and not Bush's?
I agree. The dems are just begging for a distraction. I’m sure they (the dems) know there’s nothing in Romney’s tax returns as well. But they do want to act like there’s something wrong with them. Does not have to be true.
Hopefully Romney will stick to his guns
Has the ring of believability
I’m quite sure there is no ‘there, there’, but speaking to the hack. It’s one thing to claim that you hacked a computer file, isn’t disclosing ‘with out consent’ private tax forms a federal offence. Being a federal offence and the target being a presidential candidate, would not the Secret Service take the lead in finding the culprit’s. Stealing from the public is one thing, stealing from the next president of the USA someting else entirely.
Just my 2 cent’s
Hack/Check THEIR bank accounts - how much did Harry Reid pay them.
The hope? Now Romney will have to release the real returns to prove these are fakes!
These people still have no hope without class warfare.
Just to clarify, and you probably already know this, but he did it to JACK RYAN NOT PAUL RYAN. The dems in IL also used confusion over the name Ryan to try to associate Jack Ryan and Jim Ryan with the corrupt blow hard Gov George Ryan. Ryan is a common name.
do the leaked romney tax returns have a “smiley face”? do they have some commies initials of “XO”?
In spite of denials this is standard BHO, Jr. procedure.
Now there is also the question: Is it simply a scam?
Why would you think there is something on them damaging to Romney? This crap about a swiss bank ammesty is a joke.
Isn’t Jack Ryan the character in the Tom Clancy novels?
Who cares ???
Willard likes unborn babies to be hacked so he can enjoy this too...
I see a much BIGGER issue here and it has nothing to do with Romney or his tax returns.
Did you give the guy from Mozambique who has the 40 million dollars your bank info yet so he can send it to you?
That’s believable also.....righrt?
