Are things going to be fun or what?
Anonymous group threatens to leak Romney tax records - CNN.com
They're fakes..................Romney's tax records are safely tucked away with Obama's school records.
I guess the blackmail part wasn't important enough to enter into the thread title. Wow, several felonies are being committed here.
Is this the first ever ransom of tax documents?
I'm guessing no, cause this sounds like bullshit.
If watching someone go to jail for hacking and threatening to extort your idea of fun, it will be a riot.
hacking seems to be more trouble.
below appears to be an EZ ticket to a book deal?
IRS Section 7216 Regulations
On January 1, 2009, IRS regulations under Internal Revenue Code section 7216 became effective. Treas. Reg. section 301.7216 represents a modification of previous regulations that had remained largely unchanged for 30 years. The newly revised regulations attempt to address modern return preparation practices, including electronic filing and the cross marketing of financial and commercial products and services by tax return preparers.
Absent a specific, exception, Treas. Reg. section 301.7216 generally prohibits the disclosure or use of tax return information without the client’s explicit, written consent. In general, a “disclosure” of tax return information involves a disclosure by the preparer of a client’s return information to a third party. A “use” of tax return information generally involves the use of the return information by the preparer potentially for the purposes of offering non-tax services to the taxpayer.
Under section 7216, a tax return preparer is subject to a criminal penalty for “knowingly or recklessly” disclosing or using tax return information. Each violation of section 7216 could result in a fine of up to $1,000 or one year imprisonment, or both. Internal Revenue Code section 6713, the companion civil penalty, imposes a $250 penalty on a preparer for each prohibited disclosure or use of the return information.
1 million is low for billions are on the line...
It's obama using Anonymous. He's always had Romney's tax records. They are in government files.
If it is in fact Anonymous (the hacker group), than I would say they probably are real. In addition, the Anons will probably not be able to be tracked.. They are too good, especially after Sabu from LulzSec was caught, they learned a lot on how the FBI was tracking them.
However, the Anons do not usually do things for money, that would get them caught. They don't specify who the group is, they just call it an anonymous group.
