|Grant Clemency to Bradley Birkenfeld!|
Tax day is the day that honest hardworking Americans file their tax returns. But on tax day this year a great injustice continues: whistleblower Bradley Birkenfeld, who exposed UBS' $20 billion offshore illegal tax fraud scheme, remains incarcerated in federal prison. The person solely responsible for the recovery of billions of U.S. tax dollars is the same person who has served more time than anyone connected to the UBS scandal.
Today is also the day that President Obama can fix this injustice by issuing a full presidential pardon or commuting Mr. Birkenfeld's sentence to time-served immediately. Mr. Birkenfeld put tax money back in the hands of every American. We must return the favor and demand the he be released from prison.TAKE ACTION! Tell President Obama grant Bradley Birkenfeld's official petition for clemency today!
The Department of Justice admitted that "but for Mr. Birkenfeld" the illegal UBS tax scheme would not have been discovered by the U.S. government. As a direct result of Mr. Birkenfeld's disclosures UBS agreed to pay a $780 million fine, the creation of an IRS amnesty program under which 14,700 people declared illegal secret bank accounts, and the shutdown of the entire $20 billion UBS illegal offshore program.TAKE ACTION!
