By CCN Markets: In a somewhat bizarre video tweet around lunch on Friday, cryptocurrency aficionado and repetitive presidential candidate John McAfee said he’s launching a website dedicated to exposing corruption in the U.S. government. This will perhaps be McAfee’s second-most important launch of recent times, having recently unveiled a cryptocurrency exchange.

Crazy McAfee Doing Some Public Good

McAfee is an outlandish personality anywhere he is, which is either a defect or a point of admiration depending on where you stand. In either case, most people wouldn’t want to live the crazy life that McAfee has been leading as of late.

Formerly on the run from Bolivian officials as part of a murder investigation, he came under investigation by the U.S. government for tax dodging. This directly followed McAfee’s public taunting of the U.S. government, saying he had failed to pay taxes for several years and daring them to do something about it.

The techno-millionaire might have flown under the radar for an indeterminate amount of time otherwise.

So, while some governments believe McAfee is corrupt and owes vast sums of money to the federal government, McAfee pledges to expose the corruption of the U.S. government.

McAfee has led a colorful life since he sold his stake in his security company. He once had a sale at one of his estates, saying he was too poor to pay the bills. He later told people that this was a facade and that he was hiding money offshore.
