EDITORIAL: It’s been a year or more since our stalkers hacked into my attorney’s company email and gained access to confidential attorney/client privileged communications. I got a call a couple months ago on it. First and last contact. LAPD hasn’t done anything about this when we even know who owns and runs the website they posted the information to.
In Los Angeles, only the elite are protected. See how fast they jump now!!

Vice President Biden, too, but his info defenses put up a better fight, as not as much of his personal financial details were clipped.
The information on the celebs and power brokers included social security numbers, mortgage accounts, credit card and bank accounts, and car loans, according to TMZ, which did not reveal the recipient website.
FBI Director Robert Mueller was also a victim, and his investigators are reportedly working to nab the hacker-perp.
TMZ reported the hacker was not able to seize as much info on Biden and Clinton, the former Secretary of State and First Lady who is oft-speculated to be a leading contender for the Democratic nomination for President in 2016.
