In two postings on Pastebin, the anonymous hackers claim to have gained access to the third floor of the building, broken into one of the office suites, and stolen Mitt and Ann Romney's available 1040 tax forms. The team said it copied the returns and plans to send flash drives with the files to the local Democratic and Republican offices in Tennessee as well as "major news media outlets" should the ransom not be paid."
