Great news: Pro Publica has tax info on thousands, in addition to top billionaires

[Ed. – This problem of tax-info-leaking is not going to skip you, friend.  It’s not your money that’s the “problem” — nor is it the billionaires’ money.  This is a method of political warfare, and it will be used against anyone targeted by the Left.]

ProPublica, the nonprofit news organization that recently published what it said was the tax information of the 25 richest Americans, is now out with the tax information of a candidate for Manhattan district attorney, “Tali Farhadian Weinstein, who is married to hedge fund manager Boaz Weinstein.”

“The Weinsteins are among thousands of wealthy people whose tax return data ProPublica has obtained,” the article says. …

ProPublica is not disclosing how it obtained the data, which was given to us in raw form,” the first article said. A sidebar says, “We do not know the identity of our source,” and that “We have considered the possibility that information we have received could have come from a state actor hostile to American interests.” The sidebar contends further that the federal law that makes it a crime to disclose tax return information would be unconstitutional “if applied to bar or sanction publication of a story in the public interest when the news organization did not itself remove the information from the control of the IRS or solicit anyone else to do so — as we did not.”
