    Along with filing financial reports filled with errors and misstatements, “Big Four” accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers neglected to verify whether the Clinton Foundation obtained tax-exempt status for its various sub-entities, including its AIDS charity, contends respected Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel. As WND has reported, Ortel’s six-month investigation indicates the Clintons have diverted tens millions of dollars donated for charitable purposes to the personal enrichment of themselves and their close associates. He says PWC neglected to exercise due diligence in fulfilling its professional responsibilities in conducting even the most basic inquiries required of an honest audit. PWC, he says, failed to...

    A British parliamentary committee on Friday accused the accounting firm PwC of promoting tax avoidance on an industrial scale and urged the government to step in and do more to regulate the tax industry. The Public Accounts Committee issued a scathing report, accusing PwC of mass-marketing tax avoidance plans and diverting profits to Luxembourg through intra-company loans. “We believe that PwC's activities represent nothing short of the promotion of tax avoidance on an industrial scale,” committee chair Margaret Hodge said. “The effect has been to reduce the amount of corporation tax that some multinational companies pay in the countries in...

    An anonymous individual or group claims to have obtained "all available" tax returns associated with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The alleged hackers claim to have accessed them via computers in the Franklin, Tenn., office of professional services firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers. An anonymous posting on a file sharing website claims PwC was hacked; the same site has been used to boast of other high-profile corporate hacks. How'd they pull it off, allegedly? The posting states: "[Romney's 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...

    EurActiv ^ | 05 November 2012 | (EurActiv.com with Reuters)
    The world will have to cut the rate of carbon emissions by an unprecedented rate to 2050 to stop global temperatures from rising more than 2°C this century, a report released by PwC on Monday (5 November) showed. PwC’s annual Low Carbon Economy Index report examined the progress of developed and emerging economies towards reducing their carbon intensity, or their emissions per unit of gross domestic product. Global temperatures have already risen by about 0.8 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial times. Almost 200 nations agreed in 2010 at United Nations climate talks to limit the rise to below 2°C (3.6°F) to...
  • Secret Service Investigating Purported Ransom of Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns

    Secret Service Investigating Purported Ransom of Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns Someone claims to have stolen years of Mitt Romney’s tax returns from a Tennessee office of the financial firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, and the Secret Service is investigating what appears to be a ransom scheme. The local Democratic and Republican parties in Williamson County, Tenn., where the PricewaterhouseCoopers office is located, both received packages, each containing a thumb drive and a letter outlining a competitive-bidding ransom scheme that appears designed to pit Republicans and Democrats against each other over the release of Romney’s taxes. The letters stated an intention to publish Romney’s...

    This Wed., March 2, the Prince William County School Board will be voting on what to name the new elementary school opening Fall 2011 on Linton Hall Road.  The naming committee came up with the lame name of "Piney Branch Elementary School" -- Ronald Reagan didn't even make the top 18 suggestions of the committee despite it having strong supporters.  I first suggested that name early last October and encouraged people to submit it to the naming committee by the Dec. 1 deadline.  Following is the message that I sent to the naming committee: Since the new elementary school on...

    Prince William Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey A. Stewart is calling on Virginia legislators to follow in Arizona's footsteps and pass a law to crack down on illegal immigration throughout the Commonwealth. Dubbing it the "Virginia Rule of Law Campaign," Stewart said he will spend the rest of the year lobbying the General Assembly to pass legislation that enhances police officials' power to capture, detain and deport illegal aliens; outlaws illegal day laboring; and creates specific Virginia penalties for illegal immigrants. "We need to bring the rule of law to all of Virginia," Stewart said. "As long as the...

    Board is ‘aghast’ at Principi request By CHERYL CHUMLEY Published: March 12, 2010 Tuesday's closed sessions of the Prince William supervisors' meeting were marked by one item of special interest—the chairman asked for a behind-doors talk about one of the board's own. Following various interviews, what's emerged is that some board members are upset by Supervisor Frank Principi's self-directed attempt to help homeless men by placing them temporarily in county buildings. According to board members, Principi—against county policy—directed county staff to find ways of accomplishing this. The matter came to light at Tuesday's board meeting. Chairman Corey Stewart, R-At-large, requested...

    Just yesterday, the media and Democrat-ick officials and Obama campaign staff were claiming that Barry Obama would draw between 25,000 and 50,000 to his "Old-Time Traveling Medicine Show" at the Nissan Pavillion in PWC today where he would hawk his modern day snake oil remedies. The Pavillion holds 25,000 for concerts and it was expected that nearly double that number would show up in a sea of humanity stretching far beyond the gates. Now, the WashPo is reporting that only about 10,000 people showed up, which given their propensity for fuzzy math favoring Democrats, means there were probably more on...

    Prince William Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey A. Stewart, the politically ambitious architect of the county's illegal immigration crackdown, said he plans to run for lieutenant governor next year. It is well known that Stewart, a conservative Republican, is eyeing higher office. He frequently has been mentioned as a potential successor to U.S. Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.). And now that Davis has decided not to seek reelection, Stewart has declared himself the "preeminent Republican in Northern Virginia." Stewart said he spent the past month weighing his options while watching the General Assembly reach a virtual stalemate on...

    RICHMOND — Prince William Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey A. Stewart, who engineered the county's crackdown on illegal aliens last summer, plans to run for lieutenant governor next year. Mr. Stewart, a Republican, told The Washington Times the job would give him the platform to pressure lawmakers into doing more to crackdown on illegal aliens. "By running statewide it gives me the bully pulpit to do that," he said. While several Republicans are said to be considering bids for attorney general next year, Mr. Stewart, a Minnesota native and Georgetown University graduate, is the party's highest-profile figure to indicate...
