Iowa GOP moving vote-count to 'undisclosed location'

Threats to disrupt the Iowa Republican caucuses next week have prompted state GOP officials to move the vote tabulation to an "undisclosed location," POLITICO has learned.

The state party has not yet told the campaigns exactly where the returns will be added up, only that it will be off-site from the Iowa GOP's Des Moines headquarters.  The 2008 caucus results were tabulated at the state party offices, which sit just a few blocks from the state capitol.

Activist groups including the Occupy movement have indicated that they'll attempt to interrupt rallies in the closing days before next Tuesday's caucuses.

The AP reported today that Occupy is making plans to even attend some caucuses and vote "no preference," but not disturb the voting process.

But Iowa Republicans are also bracing for other threats, sources say, including hacking.

Iowa GOP Chair Matt Strawn wouldn't comment on the plan to move the vote-counting except to say they're increasing security measures.

Iraq War Ends, But No Parade For Troops Is Imminent

Iraq War Parade

WASHINGTON — Americans probably won't be seeing a huge ticker-tape parade anytime soon for troops returning from Iraq, and it's not clear if veterans of the nine-year campaign will ever enjoy the grand, flag-waving, red-white-and-blue homecoming that the nation's fighting men and women received after World War II and the Gulf War.
Officials in New York and Washington say they would be happy to help stage a big celebration, but Pentagon officials say they haven't been asked to plan one.
Most welcome-homes have been smaller-scale: hugs from families at military posts across the country, a somber commemoration by President Barack Obama at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
With tens of thousands of U.S. troops still fighting a bloody war in Afghanistan, anything that looks like a big victory celebration could be seen as unseemly and premature, some say.

Swiss Bank to Give Up Info on US Accounts

The days of the “secret Swiss bank account” seem to be coming to an end, as Swiss banking giant UBS AG has agreed to turn over to the U.S. government information on Americans who held Swiss bank accounts in order to avoid paying U.S. taxes. In addition, the Justice Department reports that UBS AG has agreed to pay $780 million in fines, penalties, interest and restitution, in order to avoid future prosecution.
Charges brought buy the Justice Department alleged that UBS disregarded a 2000 agreement with the IRS to report the income of its U.S. account holders, and actively assisted U.S. citizens in evading U.S. income tax payments.
