Hackensack NJ,  Yesterday, Rep. Scott Garrett held a press conference to call out Democrat challenger Josh Gottheimer forforging government documents.

In this fast-breaking story ,Democrat Gottheimer admitted his deceit to the Star Ledger: “An official with the Gottheimer campaign confirmed that it had produced the ad and manipulated the image.”

Falsifying government documents is a federal crime under 18 U.S. Code § 912.

Cease and desist letters were delivered to New Jersey broadcast stations overnight, but Josh now has more to worry about than simply taking television ads down – these actions fall squarely in the jurisdiction of Hillary Clinton’s new friends, the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Sharing Your Netflix Password Is Now a Federal Crime

Court upholds conviction of ex-employee who shared database access.

On July 5th , the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion which found, in part, that sharing passwords is a crime prosecutable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). The decision, according to a dissenting opinion on the case, makes millions of people who share passwords for services like Netflix and HBOGo into “unwitting federal criminals.”

The decision came in the case of David Nosal, an employee at the executive search (or headhunter) firm Korn/Ferry International. Nosal left the firm in 2004 after being denied a promotion. Though he stayed on for a year as a contractor, he was simultaneously preparing to launch a competing search firm, along with several co-conspirators. Though all of their computer access was revoked, they continued to access a Korn/Ferry candidate database, known as Searcher, using the login credentials of Nosal’s former assistant, who was still with the firm.
