Anonymous Hacks IRS Database and publishes Romney Tax Returns

Anonymous Hacks IRS Database and publishes Romney Tax Returns

August 1, 2012 - 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.

The Anonymous attack successfully retrieved 25-years worth of Romney’s tax returns and published them without permission on major websites throughout the Internet. The majority of these websites removed the returns within minutes, however it was too late to completely protect the candidate’s already tainted image.


Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul stated last week that “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.

In addition to his wild nights, Romney also deducted health related expenses. These included $127,000 for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for a condition termed “Pseudologia fantastica” also known as Compulsive Liar Syndrome. This may explain why the Republican nominee’s views seem to change dramatically depending on his audience. In fact, his recent string of political gaffes may be the direct result of his inability to keep up with the many competing “truths” he has spoken over the past year. According to noted Psychiatrist Bryan King, “Pathological liars seem utterly sincere about their lies, but if confronted with facts to the contrary, will often just as sincerely reverse their story.” According to Politifact, a news organization that researches the veracity of politician’s statements, only 16% of Romney’s examined statements were found to be completely true.

    "Yesterday, an article was appeared on Yahoo about Mittt Romney.
    But, as soon as a comment was posted regarding hgis tax returns, the comment disappeared together
    with all comments. That says alot.".....

    UNLESS SOMEONE CAN POST A LINK TO AN OFFICIAL STORY, THIS IS A DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN AND IS A FAKE STORY.

    THIS IS PROBABLY THE SAME REASON YAHOO REMOVED THE STORY. (IF THAT REALLY HAPPENED).

    And this is the guy that all the other members of the 2% club want elected.

    They are so out of touch with the other 98% of us that those monkey business deductions
    seem perfectly acceptable.

    He is, however, a 'job creator'; just as advertised.
    Seems like a job inventor as well.

    Six months into the Romney Administration and the USA will be looking like
    the Grecian uprisings. Oh, sorry... we have that fine US Regular Army unit all
    ready to gun us down when we gather in the streets to beg for bread.

    My mistake

    I find it easier and easier to believe that there is more than one species of human. Surely this odious streak of bipedal excrement cannot be the same species that works hard, loves their family and gives to charity. Ladies and gentlemen, meet pseudohuman. Capable of mimicking some simple human responses but easily caught out when questioned. Keep up the good work Anonymous, exposing the monsters in our midst
