Wikileaks is an international organization, based in Sweden, which publishes anonymous submissions and leaks of sensitive documents while preserving the anonymity of sources. Its website, launched in 2006, is run by The Sunshine Press. The organization has described itself as having been founded by Chinese dissidents, as well as journalists, mathematicians, and start-up company technologists from the U.S., Taiwan, Europe, Australia and South Africa. Newspaper articles and The New Yorker magazine (June 7, 2010) describe Julian Assange, an Australian journalist and Internet activist, as its director. Within a year of its launch, the site claimed a database that had grown to more than 1.2 million documents. - Source: Wikipedia

That lascivious New York weasel, former Rep. Anthony D. Weiner, proves once again that when it comes to audacity beyond chutzpah, this pathetic Brooklyn-born "bon vivant" is tough to beat ("Ex-Rep.
