City GOP chair led piracy ring?

This is rich. Or most likely Tony Krvaric is.
Any job applicant knows that background checks are routine - especially for jobs involving authority or oversight of money. So why didn't the San Diego Republican Party do a simple Google search before naming Tony Krvaric as its chairman? Online research reveals that Krvaric is the co-founder of Fairlight, a band of software crackers which later evolved into an international video and software piracy group that law enforcement authorities say is among the world's largest such crime rings. After co-founding Fairlight in Sweden, Krvaric established U.S. operations for the organization, including an arm headquartered in Southern California-a major center for the computer and video game industry. Krvaric has also been appointed by California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring to head up the state party's budget committee. RAW STORY's investigation reveals the California GOP has put an alleged pirate in charge of its treasure trove.

OK, Google isn't definitive and hardly irrefutable evidence, but should be adequate for determining someone is probably not qualified to be in charge of your budget.
