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.
An excerpt from one message states...

What did members of the Obama Administration know, and when did they know it.
What did members of Harry Ried’s staff know, and when did they know it.
When is a special prosecutor going to be named?
Romney has been running for president for at least ten years. he was running for governor before that. he is a smart man. I am sure he had things well in order prior to his run knowing that there would be digging. he no doubt saw how the Clintons used the IRS as a political appendage and prepared for Hillary to be his opponent in 2008. there is likely nothing in his returns but there is a crime in anyone but him releasing them.
This isn't hacking, this is plain old theft of file documents. Do they lock the file cabinets and if so, who has keys to the cabinet? Security cameras? Too many questions unanswered.
..."all 1040 tax forms for Romney were copied,"...
Note that the forms were copied, not downloaded.
...you did not have them all in a convenient electronic form.
And why, if you're holding out for money, do you do this...
...having sent Mitt's tax returns "to Democratic and GOP offices in the county."
Any comments from the GOP or DNC? This would be big news.
And I notice that PWC gave no comment either. You have to wonder if they were even called and asked about this before this "report" was made.
And forget the Justice Dept. letting this go unnoticed if this is real.
IMO, somebody could be facing some intense Secret Service scrutiny.
Thank you for clarifying!!
Thank you for clarifying!!
I wonder if they could hack ‘The War Criminal’ Obama’s college records? Don’t they claim to be mad at him?
You are dead on target. This has the smell of a cover story for a typical Axelrod/Obama dirty tricks operation. Axelrod got Geithner to breach IRS confidentiality and this phony story is let out to wipe off the fingerprints, so to speak.
Mitt’s tax returns on form 1040? I don’t think so. There is a bit more needed if PriceWaterhouse is used to do the tax computations.
Yep, same name.
Ok, let’s analyze this further. Obama has had one of his opponents in an election withdraw because someone hacked into the courts where the guy had a messy divorce. The Chicago papers were then given “sealed” court records, which they promptly published. So, we have this fitting Obama’s MO. Next, how would a particular hacking group know where Mitt had all of his last 10 years taxes done? Does it not seem likely that they were steered to PWC by a knowledgeable source, who probably works at the IRS? Again, I am only using this analysis, and presuming that the records they have stolen, are in fact real. I’d guess they are not. But, if they are real, and they become published material and there is something spectacular in there, Obama’s the one who is going to have to answer for it, seeing as this is how he plays the game. If I were Obama, I’d cough up the mil, and ask them to destroy the key. Nothing good will come for Obama if these records are released, especially seeing as how he made such a big deal about releasing them, and the fact that he has done this type of thing before.
