Bradley Birkenfeld

"The average American is carrying the weight for all these millionaires and billionaires. That’s the fact. That’s the truth. And until someone does something about it, it’s never gonna be cleaned up."

Bradley Birkenfeld was a secret Swiss banker at UBS in Geneva who delivered some of the world’s best-kept financial secrets to the US Government. However, despite revealing the information, he was convicted for holding crucial information from the government - conspiracy to commit tax fraud - and is now serving a 40 month prison sentence.
