Campaign finance records show that the professed leaker of information about the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs likely donated to former Rep. Ron Paul’s (R-Texas) presidential campaign.
Records show a donation from an Edward Snowden in Columbia, Md., a community about eight miles from the NSA at Fort Meade, on March 8, 2012, for $250.
A May 6, 2012, record shows a May 6, 2012, contribution to Paul for $250 from an Edward Snowden in Waipahu, Hawaii. His job is listed as a “senior advisor.”
Booz Allen Hamilton, the contractor which employed Snowden for $200,000 a year, said in a statement yesterday that he hadn’t been with the company for long.
