I've been informed that there was money requested not to release this information.
Which means Anonymous is not involved as indicated in the links. Anonymous is not motivated by financial gain. They are motivated by social justice.
Since the request for money goes to an unnamed account and not a group, facility, or organization harmed directly or indirectly by Romney certainly means this is not Anonymous.
Breaking #anonymous is alleging that they have gained "all available 1040 tax forms" of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney— Transhuman █∞█ (@transhuman) September 5, 2012
Follow me over the Itzl to see what we have so far.
An anonymous posting on a file sharing website claims that PwC has been hacked. This particular file sharing website has been used by other hackers in the past who have made claims of infiltrating computers from companies like Apple.So we are expecting to see Rmoney's tax returns finally on September 28.
An excerpt from one of the postings says:
"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."
I still would like to keep tabs on this as even the idea that Romney is now this vulnerable will create stress in the Romney camp.
