    Larry Flynt trying to stay relevant...




    Hustler magazine offers $1 million for a different type of exposure



    (CNN)
    - A magazine known for its sexually explicit material is offering a reward of $1 million dollars for a different type of bare-all expose.
    The publisher of Hustler magazine, Larry Flynt, is offering the sum for the skinny on GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's financials, the magazine announced.

    It is taking out full-page advertisements in two newspapers - The Washington Post on Sunday, and USA Today on Tuesday - "offering up to a million dollars in cash for documented evidence concerning Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's unreleased tax returns and/or details of his offshore assets, bank accounts and business partnerships," a press release from the magazine read.
    Flynt's announcement could be seen as either an attempt to keep the issue of Romney's financial documents alive or put himself - and his magazine - in headlines.

    Romney has released his tax returns for 2010 and an estimate of his 2011 tax liability, but has repeatedly said he would not release additional years, saying it would be fodder for Democrats to criticize him.

    In recent months, various political figures, including some Republicans, have called for more transparency from Romney.

    Earlier in the week, an anonymous online poster claimed it was holding stolen tax documents belonging to Romney ransom for $1 million in an internet currency. Should the sum not be paid by later this month, the posting said a key to unlock the documents would be released publicly, while the financial firm from which the documents were allegedly stolen said there is "no evidence of unauthorized access to our data."




    First Donald Trump asks for evidence of where Obama was born, and now Larry Flynt is asking for Romney's tax papers? We're fucked.

    I'm assuming it's against the law to release his transcripts without his permission, so isn't it illegal to offer a reward for doing so?

    Complete BS. If someone had them they would've just released them. Demanding a ransom in bitcoins is a hoaxy as you can get.

    He lost all his money due to Bernie Madoff and for awhile was a 99%er.

    Alternatively, he owns stock in Evil Co.

    Has anon actually ever hacked anything or do they just do DDOS attacks?

    Nothing illegal but perhaps stuff that could get him in trouble with his base. Like if he was misreporting his income to the Mormon church and not giving the proper tithe. Or perhaps receiving income from suspect sources. I think there's a strong possibility he took advantange of the 2009 Swiss Bank amnesty program as well.

    Not necessarily. The reward is for the information, it doesn't specify how the the fella collecting it should come upon that information. Unlike with a material object, information can be found out without violating anyone's property rights (someone might make a mistake and publish it, an unrelated third party might steal it and then just publish it online without knowing what it means, etc.), so knowledge of protected information isn't automatically a crime (the way knowingly posessing a stolen car would be).

    They do from time to time, but not very effectively (compared to some of the professional criminals out there, anyway). Most things on the Internet aren't that difficult to hack into, but getting good at hacking requires secrecy, and Anonymous are the most ironically named collection of douchebags in the world.

    Anyone with above average IQ and some practice could find vulnerabilities in pretty much any web application out there. I'm sure there are plenty of people associated with Anonymous, who are in fact smart and dedicated enough. But it's not something you learn in college.

    (There are some good books out there, but they're not enough, they're usually one step behind the curve. You need to practice to get ahead of it, and, to be able to practice, you need to keep how smart you are a secret.)

    or maybe that he misrepresented himself as a kenyan foreign exchange student, or that he had horrible grades, or the true source of his college tuition comes to light, or maybe he took some courses that some may deem anti-american, or....oh wait

    Do they usually make the guy with the worst grades President of Harvard Law review? I would think such a prestigious school would want to honor it's strongest students with that position.

    I was always under the impression that the Obama President Now conspiracy extends back to before Obama was born. Kind of like how all those people kept Damien from The Omen safe.

    If it's such a grand conspiracy, did they keep a second set of books with Obama's "REAL" grades lying around somewhere to be released at an opportune time? Why not just save the hassle of such onerous bookkeeping requirements and have a single set of report cards showing the straight A's, except for "Running the Government 101" which was an A++.

    1. Harvard did not have an exchange program with any University in Kenya, nor did Columbia or Occidental at the time...and Obama never attended University in Kenya. As well, the current rules for Harvard and most top colleges would be that if Obama WAS saying he was an exchange student, he would not have been able to graduate from Harvard, as Harvard Law's current exchange program is only good for one semester.
    And even if he was an international student it wouldn't show on his transcript.

    2. If he had horrible grades, he wouldn't have been able to transfer to Columbia, or get into Harvard Law. Also, to be a member of the Law Review at Harvard...its only offered to law students BASED ON THEIR GRADES. Besides, George Bush was a "C" student. Grades wouldn't effect the election.

    3. Obviously you have never seen a college transcript. They say nothing about tuition, and especially not about who paid them.

    4. "Anti-American" courses? Are you fucking kidding me? All a transcript has is a course name. You would know, if you went to school beyond Junior year that these are typically 1-3 words long. There are no Harvard Law or Columbia Poli Sci courses called "America is bad 101."

    Here is what a college transcript looks like. Its the Harvard Law Transcript for Justice Elena Kagan.

    As you can see, none of the shit you are talking about would be revealed on a fucking transcript:

    I think the claim is more related to his status as an Indonesian, not a Kenyan.

    Are you unfamiliar with Affirmative Action. I have no clue if he did well at Occidental or Columbia, but it is not beyond the realm of possibility that he benefited from such a program and didn't simply get into Columbia on merit.

    Was this also the case for his being made President of the Harvard Law Review? Or are you just cherry-picking the facts like a good Conservative?

    Considering he was the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, yet there exists not a single piece of writing attributed to him at all, then yes a case can very well be made at Harvard as well. Sorry for omitting it.

    It was the conservative wing of the law review which elected him. The point is...his transcripts would prove NONE of this.
