Middle Tennessee lands at the center of another national political story, and this one is just too bizarre to be true. Apparently some anonymous group claims it hacked Mitt Romney’s tax returns from the Franklin, TN office of PricewaterhouseCoopers and they are holding the documents for ransom. The Secret Service has seized a supposedly encrypted flash drive and letter that was sent to both the Democratic and Republican parties of Williiamson County.

The thieves want $1 million in bitcoins.

This whole thing is so strange. I’m calling it a scam, but as the Nashville Scene reminds us, Sarah Palin’s e-mail hack came out of Tennessee, too. So who the hell knows.

    So that’s what? $10 million? I wonder if that’s enough to live in a country with not extradition treaty with the US. Ecuador maybe?
