In this article “The private Hotmail and Dropbox accounts of Mitt Romney, Massachusetts governor and Republican Party presumptive nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 election, have allegedly been compromised by a currently unknown individual.

Apparently, the same password was used to secure Romney’s Dropbox account.”
