In the past few days, two messages posted to the hacker-favored website Pastebin claimed that the authors had illegally obtained tax returns, including those of Republican candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann, from professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. Late Wednesday, PricewaterhouseCoopers provided the following statement to TPM indicating that it currently had no evidence of any such intrusion. As PwC said in its statement:

We are aware of the allegations that have been made regarding improper access to our systems. We are working closely with the United States Secret Service, and at this time there is no evidence that our systems have been compromised or that there was any unauthorized access to the data in question.
