Franklin, Tenn. resident Michael Brown, is under investigation (and has his computer stuff under seal) by Secret Service agents attempting to figure out whether he attempted to blackmail Mitt Romney claiming to have Romney's tax returns (encrypted on thumb drives).
For one thing, there are the cats. Among the pieces of evidence included in the search warrant released by Brown are two black and white images of house cats. The images, according to Brown, were found on one of the thumb drives mailed out with the ransom notes. And the Secret Service at first thought the cats were Brown’s. Brown has maintained that they are not his cats — they are the cats of a family friend.meow.
