UBS Whistleblower Gets
Rewarded With Prison Time

by Ann Woolner - August 26th, 2009 - Bloomberg News

If he had kept his mouth shut and his head low, Bradley Birkenfeld would be a free man today. He didn’t, so now the former UBS AG banker wears an electronic bracelet on his ankle and, beginning in January, will spend three years and four months in a federal penitentiary.

He’s headed for prison even though he blew the whistle on a multibillion-dollar international tax fraud conspiracy. Birkenfeld’s information let the U.S. pierce Swiss bank secrecy laws as never before possible.

This episode is proof positive that ALL government bureaucrats are contemptible scum. Anyone stupid enough to trust the self serving parasites that suck at the public trough have never truly understood why government is always the most evil and corrupt element in any society.
