Wikileaks and a Swiss bank list

January 18, 2011 | By | 1 Reply More

On Monday, Rudolph Elmer is said to have turned over to Wikileaks names of US, UK and Asian celebrities, lawmakers and business-folks who may or may not (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) have been trying to avoid paying taxes.

Apparently, the data are confusing even to those used to dealing with such, so release won’t be soon.  Still, it will be interesting to see who is in the Heidi Fleiss Black Book of off-shore accounts. Most particularly if there are any prominent (and current) US lawmakers.

    More information is good. That's my starting premise. Now, if only Wikileaks could publish the tens of 19,000 American tax cheats who stowed their money at the Swiss bank, UBS. http://dangerousintersection.org/2010/01/07/repor

    Bradley Birkenfeld, the man who blew the whistle on all of these prominent citizens who stole from our government, sits in prison. http://dangerousintersection.org/2010/01/07/repor
